Raise your hand if you watched a few episodes of the cancelled show I Wanna Marry “Harry” back in the day. Don’t worry — you’re not alone. While contestants had to go through a long process to potentially meet what turned out to be an impersonator, Meghan Markle had one question before dating Prince Harry. And no, it had nothing to do with his royal upbringing.
Prince Harry revealed that him and Markle met due to friends who set them up on a blind date. (A concept that many of us forgot existed, all thanks to Google.) From there, they went on two more dates in London. Soon after, they decided to take a big trip to Botswana together. “We camped out with each other under the stars,” he said to People. “She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic.”
Markle, who currently stars in the television show Suits, admitted to the magazine that she didn’t have much knowledge about the royal family. So she treated this set-up like any other — by asking a question about his character.
But the same goes the other way around, as Prince Harry admitted he’s never seen an episode of Suits, nor was he familiar with Markle’s career.
So, it seems like they both started the relationship with somewhat of a clean slate.
We’re just happy to know that Prince Harry is just as kind in person as he appears in interviews!
