Since news broke on November 27th, 2017 that Prince Harry and his girlfriend of 16 months, Meghan Markle, are engaged, people just cannot wait to learn more. Fans wanted to know all the details like how he proposed, what the ring looked like, and most importantly, they are hoping the couple can now finally open up about how their romance started.

How it began

Well, the soon-to-be-wed couple is finally talking, and we are learning more about their relationship as the day goes by.

Prince Harry and the Suits actress recently sat down for an interview after the official announcement of their engagement. Harry revealed that he and Meghan were actually set up by a mutual friend.

"It was a blind date for sure,” he said.

Meghan said that she did not know much about the royal prior to the blind date. When the mutual friend told her there was someone she should meet, Meghan said her first question was, "well, is he nice?" To her, being with a kind and nice person was very important.

During the date, it soon became obvious that she and Harry had chemistry. He mentioned that he also did not know Meghan Markle before they were set-up. He had never watched Suits, but as soon as he walked in and saw her, he knew she was something special.

And I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her and there she was sitting there. I was like, ‘Okay, well I’m going to have to really up my game here. 

Harry also said that a few weeks later, he was able to convince the actress to join him in Botswana. It became the perfect opportunity for the both of them to get to know each other without all the distractions.

We camped out with each other under the stars. She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic.

Reactions

Several people, fans and celebs alike, have come out to offer their congratulations to the newly engaged couple. The former US president, Barack Obama, actress Priyanka Chopra, Meghan's co-star and love interest in Suits Patrick Adams, and a few others shared congratulatory messages on social media.

Now, all that's left is to look forward to the royal wedding, which according to the engagement statement, is scheduled to take place in spring 2018. Congratulations to the lovely couple.
