Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just gave their first joint interview as a couple (to mark their engagement in case you just heard). Here are all the things we’ve learned about the couple from it…
1) They were set up on a blind date
In about July last year a mutual friend (female; identity protected) set the pair up in London.
2) They only went on two dates before going on vacation together
They apparently went on two dates in rapid succession and then took a 3-4 week break before heading off to Botswana where they literally camped alone together in the wilderness
3) They fell hard and fast
According to Harry: “Meghan just tripped and fell into my life”. Elsewhere he mentions that it just feels like “the stars aligned”. Add this to his earlier comment about knowing she was the one the moment they met, suffice to say somebody is SMITTEN.
4) The proposal went down over chicken
Harry apparently popped the Q over a casual Sunday supper, a quiet night in that they couple say is typical for them. Unclear who roasted the chicken.
5) Meghan is done with acting
It wasn’t explicitly stated, but they did discuss Meghan’s plans to focus more on the charity work she’s already involved in.
