Harry told Meghan 'I love you' just three months into romance, and she immediately replied, 'I love you, too'
Prince Harry was reportedly the first to confess his feelings after his romance with Meghan Markle started. A new book, ‘Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family’, has claimed that the 35-year-old told Meghan “I love you” just three months into their whirlwind romance. The "love-struck royal" did not hide his feelings as the pair went on dates in London, Toronto, and Botswana.
The book which is expected to be released in August stated: “For Meghan, she was all in. Nothing could get her to slow down, not even a friend who cautioned her about getting involved with Harry. Three months into their relationship, a Meghan friend said, they had already begun swapping the words 'I love you'. It was Harry who said it first, but Meghan immediately replied, 'I love you, too'. From there it didn’t take long for them to begin talking in non-oblique terms about their future."
The bombshell book also claimed how the 38-year-old former actress was taken to Harry's cottage in Kensington Palace for a cozy night in after he told one of his mates she was "ticking every box fast". Also, just after her past relationship ended before her first trip to London, Meghan reportedly joked that she would be happy with "a nice English gentleman to flirt with".
The pair never revealed who set them up for their first date, but soon after meeting Harry, the ‘Suits’ star started giving hint at the blooming relationship. She also began following an Instagram account with the handle @SpikeyMau5, which was earlier used by Harry and shared a photo of a Love Hearts candy saying “Kiss Me” with the caption “Lovehearts in #London” on her social media page.
It has been said that the couple tried every possible method to keep their romance a secret, until October 2016 when news broke out that they were together. One friend even said that “Meghan is a very confident and intelligent woman and she's not overawed mixing with royalty. That's one of the things Harry admires about her."
This comes after an earlier report claimed that Harry and Meghan may not be able to return to royal duties and the rift between them and the royal family will never be mended. The couple has been living in Los Angeles for months after stepping down from their senior royal duties in March this year. They have rented out Tyler Perry's $18 million mansion where they are staying with their one-year-old son, Archie.
Earlier, it was reportedly said that the Sussexes were on a “trial period” in the US, and they may return in the future. However, now these speculated plans seem to have ended after explosive details emerged from the upcoming explosive book by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.
A source said, “The door will always be open to them as much-loved members of the family. But it's hard to see how they can now salvage the new role they wanted as "hybrid" royals, running commercial careers alongside royal duties from the US.” Another added: “The review period has not yet been discussed but it doesn't seem if there is any way of going back now. Some very private family matters have now been aired in public, seemingly with their blessing. That will be hurtful.”
