The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry has opened up on how he met and fell in love with Meghan Markle.
According to him, he met his wife through Instagram.
The couple spoke about how they met on the first episode of the ‘Harry and Meghan’ docuseries, which aired on Netflix on Thursday.
According to Harry, the first time he saw Meghan was in 2016. He said he was scrolling through his Instagram feed and stumbled across a Snapchat video of a friend of his with the former US actress.
The picture, Harry said, was that of her using a dog filter that had fluffy ears and a long tongue.
“Meghan and I met over Instagram. I was scrolling through my feed and someone who was a friend had this video of the two of them, it was like a Snapchat,” he said.
“That was the first thing and I was like, who is that?”
On her part, Meghan said it was a mutual friend of theirs that ended up mailing her that the prince was asking about her and then set up their meeting.
The couple tied the knot in 2018. The union has since then been in the public eye over the wave of controversies involving the British royal family.
In 2020, Harry and his wife were stripped of their royal titles as well as public funds associated with royal duties.
The same year, the couple left the United Kingdom for the US after their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey wherein they opened up about their struggles with the royal family.
However, following the death of Queen Elizabeth, their children inherited the title of Prince Archie and Princess Lillibert of Sussex.
