We all know how life in the royal family has been tough for Meghan! We all get to hear plenty of rumors regarding their life after marriage. But before all of this drama started… How did the couple actually meet? How did a prince from the royal family fell in love with a divorced actress? This is the story of how Meghan Markle found her prince. One thing the history tells us is that the royal family is very strict when it comes to marriage.
Take Prince Charles and Camilla Parker’s story, for example. Camilla was never accepted in the royal family because she was a divorced woman, even though Prince Charles loved her.
Take Lady Diana, for example. She was criticized for her free lifestyle.
So, marrying Prince Harry wasn’t a cup of tea for Meghan. Prince Phillip advised Harry not to marry Meghan Markle. She was a divorced actress who was also a feminist and American-African. He said horrible things to his grandson Harry: “Actresses are for dating, not for marriage.” This is what Prince Phillip had told Prince Harry. But Harry never had a doubt. The couple didn’t know each other until 2016.
Prince Harry met Meghan Markle on a blind date set up by a mutual friend. The friend thought they would make a beautiful couple. Meghan Markle didn’t know who Prince Harry was before they met. “Because I’m from the states, you don’t grow up with the same understanding of the royal family,” I didn’t know much about him. I didn’t ask much to my friend (who set the blind date). The only thing that I asked was, is he nice? Cause if he wasn’t kind, it just didn’t seem like it would make sense.
The two hit it off immediately. “I was beautifully surprised when I walked into the room and saw her. We met for a drink and then I think very quickly into that we said, well, what are we doing tomorrow? We should meet again. Things moved quickly from there. The couple went on a second date. Prince Harry then invited Meghan to accompany him on a trip to Africa just weeks later.
After 4 months of dating, their relationship became public. Everyone thought it was just a fling. But Prince Harry confirmed in public that it was serious. Harry knew how media is harsh toward the woman in the Royal Family.
He knew how his mother, Lady Diana, had suffered. When he expressed that he was serious about his relationship with Meghan, the Queen became fully supportive of her grandson. She always had a soft spot for her grandchildren. She was “delighted to see Harry in a loving relationship.”
After months of speculation, Harry proposed Meghan in November 2017. Despite not initially being accepted by the royal family, Meghan stole Harry’s heart! And as we all know, no matter whether you are a royal or not, there’s always room for love.
