How Did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Meet?

Aww! Prince Harry Knew Meghan Markle Was "Very Special" the First Time He Met Her

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to officially tie the knot on May 19, but how did the two lovebirds first meet? Coming from two different sides of the pond, the American actress and British royal actually met somewhere in between. According to Us Weekly, Meghan first met Prince Harry in Toronto (where her show Suits is filmed) while he was launching the 2017 Invictus Games in May 2016. After getting set up by their mutual friend Markus Anderson, whom Meghan often refers to as her "partner in crime" on social media, their transatlantic relationship soared to new heights. The duo started texting each other every day, and by the end of the month, Meghan started following Harry's private Instagram account.

According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, Harry knew immediately that he had to "up his game" upon meeting Meghan. "There was this beautiful, glamorous actress, but I think it went far more than just a superficial initial connection. I was told really after those first couple of dates, he knew he had met someone very, very special, there was an immediate connection," Katie told ET recently.

Although they aren't afraid to show a little PDA, the two have managed to keep their romance somewhat low-key even with all of the excitement about their upcoming royal wedding underway. For us, it's still sweet to know the little details about how they came together under such unique circumstances. We can't wait to see the sure-to-be gorgeous wedding pictures from their big day when the time arrives!
