“Because I’m from the States, you don’t grow up with the same understanding of the royal family,” she said in an interview. “I didn’t know much about him, so the only thing that I had asked [our mutual friend] when she said that she wanted to set us up, was, ‘Well is he nice?’ Cause if he wasn’t kind, it just didn’t seem like it would make sense.”

Meghan and Harry’s date took place in July 2016. It seems that Harry must have, indeed, turned out to be a very kind person because their relationship progressed quickly after that.

Prince Harry even took Meghan Markle to his favorite place in southern Africa. “I managed to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana and we camped out with each other under the stars,” he shared. “Then we were really by ourselves, which was crucial to me to make sure that we had a chance to get to know each other.”
