A Long History
Back in October of 2016, the first reports of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle started flying around. one source even said that Harry was “Happier than he’s been for many years,” and that there was some serious chemistry going on between the couple.
October 31, 2016, was also the date that Meghan Markle posted an image of two bananas spooning each other on her Instagram. That started a bunch of conversation.
Just a day later on November first, Vancouver Sun published a Q&A with Meghan where she didn’t say much about a relationship, but she did say “So, my cup runneth over and I’m the luckiest girl in the world!” at one point.
Shortly after that, both the Star and Us Weekly reported that the two went to a Halloween party together in Canada. One source reported, “Harry is pretty serious about her and she is pretty serious about him.”
A week later Harry would confirm the relationship in a message that aimed to end the “waves of abuse and harassment.”
The message read:
“Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been around to protect her. it is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm. He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game’. He strongly disagrees. This is not a game – it is her life and his.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are taking the next step in their relationship, but what does their past look like?
