Meghan Markle Gave Makeup Mogul Bobbi Brown a Major Clue She Was Dating Prince Harry Back in 2016
Their time in the British royal family appeared to be tumultuous. However, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex‘s love for one another is just as vibrant and bright as it has been since the beginning. From the ways they speak about one another to their loving touches and glances, it appears that these two were made for one another.
Meghan and Prince Harry met in the summer of 2016 and were married just two years later. Though the world caught onto their romance about six months after it began, the pair were able to get to know each other without outside influences.
Still, from the beginning, the pair were super excited to have found one another, so much so that Meghan nearly spilled the beans about her then-beau to a world-renowned makeup mogul.
This is how Meghan Markle and Prince Harry met
In the summer of 2016, Meghan was visiting London to do some press for her drama series, Suits. She was newly single and open to dating. Her friend, fashion designer Misha Nonoo, who is also a good friend of the prince’s decided to set them up.
The Sussexes met for the first time at Soho House’s Dean Street Townhouse, an exclusive social club due to the prince’s high-profile status. That very first date lasted three hours where the pair chatted over drinks and agreed to meet for a second date, a dinner, the next evening.
“Harry knew they would be together at that point,” a friend shared. “She was ticking every box fast.” In fact, the prince was sure to show his interest by texting Meghan before she even arrived back to her hotel after that first evening.

After their second date, Meghan returned to Toronto where Suits was filmed, but their romance was only beginning to heat up.
For date three, the prince convinced Meghan to travel with him to Botswana where they spent five days together under the stars. A friend revealed in Finding Freedom,
Almost immediately they were almost obsessed with each other. Three months into their relationship, a Meghan friend said, they had already begun swapping the words ‘I love you’. Harry said it first, apparently, but Meghan quickly reciprocated. From there it didn’t take long for them to begin talking in non-oblique terms about their future.
Still, the pair were careful to keep their romance out of the public eye.

Still when you’re happy and in love, it’s hard not to spill the beans. For Meghan’s 39th birthday, makeup mogul Bobbi Brown shared a photo of herself and the duchess from 2016 and she revealed that Meghan had actually given her a hint about her romance with Prince Harry.
“Happy Birthday to Meghan Markle who was such a joy to work with,” Brown wrote. “Sweet, cool and so funny. At the time of the shoot, she was telling me about a fellow she had just started to date from the UK. I didn’t ask who.”
Brown added that she put two and two together when she saw the Sussexes in Amsterdam. “Saw them again at a very special @sohohouseamsterdam birthday day,” she revealed. “Sweet as always.”
