First couple months of dating
Apparently they met when Meghan visited the family's Balmoral estate for a shooting party as part of Harry's 32nd birthday back in September 2016.She must have gotten the seal of approval, because that November, Harry introduced Meghan to brother Prince William.In early August, Meghan celebrated her 36th birthday with Harry in London.They then flew to Botswana together, where he took her on a romantic safari trip.During breaks in her Suits filming schedule, Meghan made the journey to London for stays at Harry's Nottingham Cottage home (where they will now live as an engaged couple).In early December 2016, Harry wrapped up his 14-day tour of the Caribbean, but instead of heading home to Britain with his staff, the 33-year-old made a secret detour to Canada to visit Meghan.In May, Kate Middleton's sister Pippa married James Matthews in England, and though it was initially reported that Pippa had bent the rules to allow the unmarried couple to attend, we didn't see Meghan there at all.The actress allegedly skipped the ceremony as part of royal protocol; since Pippa's wedding was not technically a royal event, it's against royal customs for members of the royal family to upstage proceedings, and it was believed that Meghan's being there would have distracted from Pippa and James's wedding.
Meghan became "a regular visitor" at Harry's home in Kensington Palace during the Summer, and the 32-year-old royal has also been "hanging out" at Meghan's Toronto apartment.We've rounded up everything we know about Harry and Meghan's romance so far — if you're as excited as we are about an American princess, you'll eat up these details.Meghan first met Prince Harry in Toronto (where Suits is filmed) while he was launching the 2017 Invictus Games back in May 2016.The prince alludes to "nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of the papers," along with incessant harassment of Meghan, her family, friends, and even her ex-boyfriends. "It is her life and his." A source close to the prince revealed late last year that Harry had wedding bells on the brain."It wouldn't surprise me if he's already thinking about an engagement just because that's where his head goes, but that's not where the relationship is at right now," they told E! The problem with Harry is when he falls, he falls hard.
