Meghan recently opened up about their relationship, saying "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."
This is Prince Harry's first serious relationship since Cressida Bonas, who he dated from 2012-2014. Meanwhile, Meghan Markle has kept her personal life out of the spotlight since her breakout role on Suits.
It was also revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would appear in a special broadcast this evening to discuss the news.
