Prince Harry Said “I Love You” To Meghan Markle Only Three Months Into Their Relationship

“Harry knew they would be together at that point”

Released in the upcoming book Finding FreedomThe Times have released excerpts detailing the lengths that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry went to, when they first began dating.

Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand include reports and interviews with sources close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, covering how their relationship first began, how quickly and deeply they fell in love, and how they managed to keep the first six months of their dating out of the British media.

According to the biography, Meghan and Harry didn’t kiss during their almost-three hour first date at London’s Soho House. However, they made plans later that night for their second date, which would be the next day. They had a romantic dinner at Dean Street Townhouse, full of chemistry and flirting. They went their separate ways after, but “Harry knew they would be together at that point,” a friend told Scobie and Durand. “She was ticking every box fast.”

Not long after, Megan began to follow Harry’s secret Instagram account—@SpikeyMau5—and posted an image of some Love Hearts candy with “Kiss Me” written on it. She captioned it, “Lovehearts in #London.”

To keep their relationship out of the media, Harry started making secret visits to Toronto, where Meghan was filming Suits. The authors wrote, “Harry took commercial flights. (Although he was usually the last on the plane and the first off.) But in an effort to maintain a low profile, he flew into Toronto with just one plainclothes protection officer instead of his normal two. A generic-looking sedan would be waiting just outside the terminal to whisk him the 12 miles to Meghan’s two-story townhouse.

According to the novel, Harry told Meghan shortly after they began dating that the press would eventually catch onto their relationship. “Make the most of this time we have,” he said, the authors reported. And so they did.

And after three months, the couple were even saying “I love you”, a friend of Meghan’s said, adding Harry said it first, and Meghan reciprocated. Then three months later, at the six-month mark of their relationship in October, their private romance became public, and by November 2017, the pair were engaged and the rest is history.
