The Dukes of Sussex have revealed how they met in their new Netflix documentary.
The Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s documentary has just been released on Netflix. The name chosen for this series, which at the moment only consists of three episodes, has been Harry and Meghan. The next three episodes will not be released until December 15.
This documentary, which is already on the list of the most viewed on its platform, is about the love story of these characters from the British royal family. In these first chapters they have already revealed personally how it was their first meeting, on which to date there were several versions.
The idea of creating this series has come thanks to the time that the dukes of Sussex have been without belonging to the royal family. In this situation they have gained the confidence to tell the world their true story.
Harry and Meghan’s romance began in 2016 in the same way that most relationships between teenagers now begin, although for a real affair, it is quite striking. Being a member of the royal family it is surprising that he met his wife through Instagram. It is said that both met thanks to the trickery of a friend they had in common but it turns out that Harry had a lot to do with this.
The prince himself has said that they met through this social network, revealing that he had a secret Instagram account. “I was reviewing my ‘feed’ and a friend had this video of the two, as a Snapchat… with dog ears” explained in the documentary. Meghan was surprised about that this was the first time the prince saw her, to which he replies that from that moment on he wanted to know who she was.
In this series they reveal the messages their friend sent to Meghan saying that Harry wanted to meet her. “I posted our Snapchat video on Instagram and Prince Haz, who follows me, called me last night dying to meet you. Hehe. I may have to set you up”. At first the actress did not know who he was and asked her friend to see the Prince’s Instagram. Meghan liked the pictures of Harry, who was in Africa at the time, and the next day they gave each other their phone number.
In the documentary the Duchess’s friends tell that shortly before she met Harry she had planned a lot of trips around Europe for a summer of single girls. Plan that in the end was never carried out, because there was a “twist in the plot”.
Two years after this curious anecdote, the ex royal couple married, as can also be seen in an episode of the documentary, and currently they have two children: Archie (2019) and Lilibet Diana (2021).
