A very rare look into Meghan and Prince Harry's year long relationship.

With the wonderful news of a new royal baby, all media focus has been on the expectant parents the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge.

Prince Harry reacted to the baby news by saying it was ‘fantastic’, and it seems his own relationship could be described the same way, too. We’re very pleased to hear that his relationship with actress Meghan Markle is going from strength to strength.

So much so that the Suits actress recently lifted the lid on her relationship with Prince Harry in her first, candid interview concerning her love life.

Speaking with Vanity Fair, Meghan discusses her year-long relationship with Prince Harry which began after the pair met in July of 2016.

Of course, dating a Prince comes with quite a lot of scrutiny, and Meghan reveals how she has dealt with the mass media attention following the confirmation of her relationship.

At the time of the media first finding out about their relationship, Prince Harry had issued a statement on social media asking for the general public to be more respectful of his partner.

Speaking about this rising scrutiny, Meghan said: ‘It has its challenges, and it comes in waves — some days it can feel more challenging than others. And right out of the gate, it was surprising the way things changed. But I still have this support system all around me, and, of course, my boyfriend’s support.’

Continuing, the actress then adds: ‘I don’t read any press. I haven’t even read press for Suits. The people who are close to me anchor me in knowing who I am. The rest is noise.’

Speaking about the vast interest in her relationship with Prince Harry, the 36-year-old then adds: ‘We’re a couple. We’re in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we have to come forward and present ourselves, and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time.’

Concluding the interview, Meghan explained: ‘This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.’

Us too, Meghan!
