How They Met
In 2016, mutual friend Violet von Westenholz suggested that Meghan and Prince Harry and set them up on a blind dinner date at London's Dean Street Townhouse.
As a matter of fact, von Westenholz's husband is named Archie, just like the couple's young son.
Third Date
After two successful dates, Prince Harry says he "managed to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana, and we camped out with each other under the stars."
It's no wonder Meghan's engagement ring includes a central stone from Botswana since the country holds a special place in their hearts.
Being Private
In 2016, after secretly dating long-distance for several months, the pair attended a costume party at London's Soho House with Harry's cousin, Princess Eugenie.
That Halloween marked their last night of freedom as their romance had been leaked to the press, and everything was about to change.
Being Public
The next month, Harry made an official public statement after a "wave of abuse and harassment" by the press and social media made him fear for Meghan's safety.
The two kept a low profile over the next year but made their first official public appearance as a couple at the Invictus Games in Toronto in September 2017.
Prince Harry was known as the party prince, but during Meghan's pregnancy, he gave up drinking and smoking, and the couple began yoga, outdoor walks, and cooking together.
