Then, in 2016 Harry met Meghan, a star of legal drama series Suits. A friend introduced the couple to each other in July 2016, and for several months the pair kept their fast-flourishing love a secret. However, rumors of their courtship were confirmed when the prince made an emotional public statement.
You see, when addressing perceived unfavorable treatment from the media in a November 2016 message, Harry referred to Meghan as his girlfriend. And speculation as to the seriousness of their relationship only increased when they were spotted buying a Christmas tree together.
The couple’s romance appeared to be going well into 2017, too. In May that year, Meghan attended a polo match with Harry; later that month, she also accompanied the prince to the wedding of Pippa Middleton, sister-in-law to Harry’s brother, Prince William.
