It was quite a whirlwind romance for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry with a royal wedding and a baby announcement all in one year. In 2018 Amazon Prime documentary “Meghan Markle: From Hollywood to Windsor”, it is revealed what the Duke of Sussex really thought of his beloved Duchess when he first saw her. Ingrid Seward, Editor of Majesty Magazine, claims that Harry saw Meghan’s photograph on Violet Von Westenholz’s Instagram.
In the photograph, Meghan was posing in Ralph Lauren while in England “doing some PR for Suits”.
Ms Seward claims: “He [Harry] saw the photograph of her and said ‘wow, she’s hot!’”
She also claims Ms Von Westenholz, who works in PR for Ralph Lauren, said to Harry: “Would you like to meet her? She’s over here.”
Harry himself explains that he and Meghan were introduced “by a mutual friend”.
He said: “It was literally through her, and then we met once and then twice back to back with two dates in London.”
Royal Nikkhah, a royal correspondent said: “They had their first date at Soho House in London in 2016.
“Then of course, Meghan began working and living at the time in Toronto, in Canada, where she was filming Suits.
“[With] Harry being based in London, they realised they would have to really go out of their way to make time for each other very quickly.”
The Prince revealed in an interview with BBC News in 2017 that he knew nothing of Meghan Markle before they met.
He had never watched her in Suits and needed “a bit of background” when their mutual friend told him about her.
However, when Harry first saw, he noted: “I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her, and there she was sitting there.
“I was like, ‘Okay, well I’m really going to have to up my game here and sit down and make sure I’ve got a good chat.'”
The Duchess also admitted she knew little of Harry, despite his royal status.
She said: ”Because I’m from the States, you don’t grow up with the same understanding of the royal family.
“So while I now understand very clearly there’s a global interest there, I didn’t know much about him.”
