Now that Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle are officially engaged, it’s the time for all of us to admit that true love does exist. This Royal couple is actually a fairy tale come to life.
Though both, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have always been relatively zipped-lip about their Royal relationship, they’ve recently let slip a few choice quotes that will have you smiling in no time.
Meghan Markle on their simple and steady relationship status: “We are just two simple people who are really happy and in love”.
Ms Markle being true to herself despite their high-profile romance: “We were very quietly dating for about six months before it all became breaking news. As I was working during that whole time, so the only thing that changed was people’s perception towards me and other things. Nothing at all about me changed. I’m still the same person that I was”.
There was a time when Meghan Markle had to deal with the media on some serious things.
Meghan on dealing with media scrutiny: “It all has its challenges, and it comes in waves. Some days it can feel even more challenging than ever. And right out of the gate it was very much surprising the way all the things changed. But I still have a support system all around me, and, of course, Harry’s support”.
Prince Harry when on their romantic-comedy-worthy meeting: “This beautiful and lovely woman just literally tripped and fell into my life”.
Prince Harry, when he wooed Meghan Markle: “We had two dates in London last month. It was, I think about three, or maybe four weeks later that I was able to manage to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana. And then, we camped out with each other under the stars and the moonlight”.
Meghan Markle when proposed by Prince Harry: “It was an amazing and a heartfelt surprise. It was so sweet of him. It was pretty natural and romantic. He got down on one knee. As a matter of fact, I could barely let him finish proposing. I was like, ‘Can I say yes now?!'”.

Meghan on how they met: “It was I think, a set-up. It was a blind date. Because I’m from the United States, you don’t grow up with the same kind of understanding of the Royal Family, and so while I now understand very clearly there’s a global interest there. I didn’t know much about him, to be honest. So the only thing that I had asked my friend was ‘Is he nice?’“.
Prince Harry on introducing Meghan Markle to his family: “It was pretty exciting. I had been seeing her for a while when I literally didn’t tell anybody at all. Then William was longing to meet her, and so was Catherine. They are our neighbours. So we have managed to actually get that in quite a few times now”.
Prince Harry spoke on what his mother, Princess Diana would think of Meghan Markle.
“They had been thick as thieves, without a doubt. And listening to this, about her, she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, so excited for me”.
