Meghan Markle has spoken publicly about her relationship with Prince Harry for the first time, revealing that they dated for six months before it became public and are really happy and in love.
Meghan covered this October edition of the Vanity Fair magazine and the front cover says ‘She’s Just Wild About Harry’ her fiance who is one of the Princes of Whales.
The actor told Vanity Fair magazine the couple met in London through friends in July 2016 and that the attention on her since the relationship with Prince Harry became public has its challenges.
Markle, who stars in the US legal drama Suits, said of the attention:
“It has its challenges, and it comes in waves some days it can feel more challenging than others.”
She told the magazine her relationship with Prince Harry had not changed her.
“And right out of the gate it was surprising the way things changed. But I still have this support system all around me, and, of course, my boyfriend’s support. I can tell you that at the end of the day I think it’s really simple.
We’re two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception.
Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship, we’re a couple. We’re in love.
I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love”
