In the interview that followed the couple’s engagement in November 2017, Prince Harry said the couple hoped to start a family in the ‘near future’.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle met in the summer of 2016 after being set up on a blind date by a mutual friend, thought to be fashion designer Misha Nonoo.
In November 2016 Harry confirmed their romance after he released a statement asking for his girlfriend’s privacy to be respected, revealing she had been subject to a torrent of abuse amid rumours of their romance.
Just weeks later the Prince visited the American actress on set of Toronto-based legal drama Suits, before the couple were first sighted together in London during December 2016.
The duo then made a number of low key appearances together in 2017, and announced their engagement in November 2017, spending Christmas together with the Queen at Sandringham.
The couple will marry on 19th May 2018 at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in England.
Harry and Meghan: A Love Story airs on Sky One at 9pm on Wednesday 9th May.
