Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been dating since June 2016 have announced their Engagement.
On November 8, 2016, an official statement was released from the Royal Family’s communications secretary addressing the “wave of abuse and harassment” directed toward Markle that followed the announcement of her relationship with Prince Harry. The statement spoke to the sexism, racism and defamatory stories directed at Markle and urged the press to “pause and reflect” before driving these storylines.
In September 2017, during an interview with Vanity Fair, Markle spoke in public for the first time about her love for Prince Harry saying, “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.” Later that month, they made their first public appearances together at an official royal engagement – the wheelchair tennis event, and the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games in Toronto.
Markle is a self-proclaimed foodie, which was incorporated into her Suits character Rachel Zane. Markle is friends with a number of celebrities including Serena Williams, Jessica Mulroney, and Ben Mulroney.
