Speaking about how they enjoyed months of privacy, Meghan added: “I think we were able to really have so much time just to connect…

“…and we never went longer than two weeks without seeing each other, even though we were obviously doing a long distance relationship.”

Meanwhile, Harry recently revealed the couple secretly met in a supermarket when they were dating.

Speaking on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast, Harry said: “The first time Meghan and I met up for her to come and stay with me, we met up in a supermarket in London…

“…pretending we didn’t know each other, so were texting each other from the other side of the aisles.”

In addition, he added: “There’s people looking at me, giving me all these weird looks, and coming up to me and saying ‘hi’.

“I texted her saying “is this the right one”, and she said, “no you want parchment paper”, and “I’m like where’s the parchment paper?!”

“It was nice, I had a baseball cap on, looking down at the floor, trying to stay incognito.”

Meanwhile, the couple announced their engagement in 2017 and married on May 19, 2018, in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The couple welcomed their first child, son Archie, in May 2019.
