And while the couple’s romance would subsequently be relatively out of the public eye, Meghan did nevertheless talk to Vanity Fair about her feelings for Harry. “We’re two people who are really happy and in love,” she said in the interview, published in October 2017. “We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news.”
Not that long afterwards, though, there would be more news. On November 27, 2017, in fact, an official announcement came from Kensington Palace. Harry had proposed to Meghan, and the pair would be married in 2018. And, understandably, fans of the British royal family were pleased that the prince had found happiness.
Then, after their first official photoshoot together, Harry and his bride-to-be sat down with the BBC for a joint interview. And in it, they revealed how they had actually met: as it turned out, a friend had set them up on a blind date. And that date had gone well enough for Harry to later invite Meghan on a five-day holiday to Botswana. There, apparently, they had “had a chance to get to know each other.”
