How Did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Meet?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting ready to expand their family! The couple are expecting their first child together and it has us reminiscing about how their love story first began. Coming from two different sides of the pond, the former American actress and British royal actually met somewhere in between. According to Us Weekly, Meghan first met Prince Harry in Toronto (where Suits is filmed) while he was launching the 2017 Invictus Games in May 2016. After getting set up by their mutual friend Markus Anderson, 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.

It's pretty obvious from their public appearances that the couple has a lot of love for each other, and we're sure their love will only grow stronger as they get ready to welcome their little one!
