Prince Harry Just Revealed Exactly When He Knew Meghan Markle Was the One: "We Went from Zero to 60"
The Duke of Sussex candidly shared more about his married life in a recent interview with James Corden—watch it here.
During a recent interview with James Corden, which aired on The Late Late Show, Prince Harry opened up about his married and post-royal life like never before. The Duke of Sussex sat down with the host on an open-topped bus for a hilarious conversation as they toured Los Angeles—during which Prince Harry openly shared how and when he knew Meghan Markle would be his future wife, reports People. "The second date I was starting to think 'Wow, this is pretty special,'" he explained to James. "It was just the fact we hit it off with each other and we were just so comfortable in each other's company," he said.
The duke added that their relationship developed in reverse due to his royal status. "All the dates become dinners, or watching the TV, or chatting at home. Eventually, once you become a couple, then you venture out to dinners, to the cinema, and everything else," he said. "Everything was done back to front with us, so actually we got to spend an enormous amount of time just the two of us, rather than going to friends' houses or out for dinner where there were other distractions." That alone time was huge for Prince Harry: "It was an amazing thing. We went from zero to 60 in the first two months," he noted.
Speaking of Meghan—she also took part in the interview, via FaceTime, and accidentally revealed a nickname for her husband in the process. "Haz, how's your tour of Los Angeles going?" she asked Prince Harry. James hilariously told the duke, "I didn't know we were calling you 'Haz' now," to which Prince Harry jokingly responded, "You're not my wife."
Harry opened up about another personal subject during the exchange—fatherhood. In another part of the interview, over tea, Prince Harry began talking about his son, Archie. "My son is just over a year and a half. He is hysterical," the duke shared. "He's got the most amazing personality. He's already putting three or four words together, he's already singing songs," he said, also sharing that his first word was "crocodile."
While Prince Harry and Meghan are still settling into life in Los Angeles (they have yet to truly experience the city as a family, due to the COVID-19 pandemic), they are still connected to royal life—including all of the shows and movies that follow their family history. As for The Crown, in particular? Prince Harry says he is actually a fan of the Netflix series. "It gives you a rough idea about that lifestyle, what the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else are, and what can come from that," he explained, also noting, "I'm way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family, or my wife, or myself. That is obviously fiction—take it how you will." As for who he would want to play him in the series? Damien Lewis, he told James, without hesitation.
