American actress Meghan Markle and Britain’s Prince Harry are set to wed Saturday, almost two years after a mutual friend set them up on a blind date in London.
Markle told BBC News that, as an American, she knew little about the prince before their first date.
“You know, because I’m from the States, you don’t grow up with the same understanding of the royal family,” Markle said. “While I now understand very clearly there is a global interest there, I didn’t know much about him.”
She told the news network that she had only one question for the friend who set them up.
“The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was sort of confirmation to me that all the stars were aligned, everything was just perfect,” Prince Harry said. “It was this beautiful woman just sort of literally tripped and fell into my life, I fell into her life.”
