Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are currently living happily ever after, but the Duchess of Sussex wasn’t always so sure of their future together, especially after her first date with the British royal.

In Andrew Morton’s book “Meghan: A Royal Princess,” the royal biographer revealed that the now-married couple met in London in 2016 while Markle was promoting her TV show “Suits.” After their first meeting, which he called “intoxicating,” Morton said the two were “mesmerized by one another.”

“She understood him as a man, not a title,” Morton explained. The biographer noted, as was previously confessed by those close to the Duke of Sussex, that he realized that he would have to “up his game” after being introduced to Markle.

Though the pair was “buzzing” after their outing, Markle is said to have had had some trepidation.

After their first meeting, they agreed to see each other again the following day, but Meghan was reportedly concerned “she had been too eager to accept his invitation,” Morton claimed.

Her worries, apparently, were without merit. The couple announced they were engaged in November 2017 and went on to wed in May 2018. They welcomed their first son, Archie, in May.
