First came the announcement, then the photographs, now the interview. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Monday spoke with the BBC's Mishal Husain about how they met, how he proposed, and what's in store. The two were set up on a blind date by an unnamed mutal female friend. Markle says she didn't know much about the prince and just asked her friend one question: If he's "nice," because "if he wasn't kind, it just didn't seem like it would make sense." He had never seen Suits—the TV show she stars in—but said he was "beautifully surprised" upon meeting her.
- The early days: The Telegraph reports they spent their first two dates in London bonding over a shared desire to change the world; Harry then invited her to go camping in Botswana. "We camped out with each other under the stars, she came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic." Markle says they enjoyed "a good five, six months almost of privacy, which was amazing" before their relationship went public. She says they haven't gone longer than two weeks without seeing each other.
