Despite Prince Harry being one of the most followed and talked about British Royals, and Meghan Markle being one of the stars of the hit series Suits, they managed to keep an incredibly low-profile in their relationship for quite some time. After making their first public appearance as a couple at the 2017 Invictus Games, rumors flew that an engagement was pending and on Monday, November 27th the Royal family released the big news. After being so private for so long, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaging with the public and sat down for their first-ever joint interview where they revealed so much about their relationship that no one ever knew. Hearing the story straight from them melted fans’ hearts, and gave everyone a better understanding of just how well they fit together despite being perhaps the most nontraditional couple the British monarchy has ever seen. Here are 12 things you didn’t know about their relationship:

12. How They Met

Given the secrecy surrounding the first few months of their relationship, it was always a mystery to how Britain’s hottest Bachelor and Prince and the American actress divorcee ended up together in a fairytale romance worthy of the movies. The pair finally revealed that they met like so many other couples — through a friend. The pair were introduced by a mutual friend (who they declined to name) and met once, then had two back-to-back dates in London in the beginning of July 2016, and confirmed the friend was most definitely introducing them in hopes of sparking a romance. The pair’s first meeting was just having a drink, and “very quickly” into the blind date, they already began planning when they could see each other next and knew they wanted to pursue not only more dates but a relationship. Harry also sweetly added that when he first saw her, things changed immediately. “I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her, and there she was sitting there and I was like, ‘Okay, well I am really going to have to up my game here. I have to sit down and really make sure I’ve got good chat.'”

11. Trip to Botswana

Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were together for quite a few months before many realized how serious it had become, one of their main ways to keep it a secret is that they weren’t around London or America. In their interview, the two revealed they took a trip to Botswana, Africa shortly after meeting which is essentially where they discovered they were already in love and ready to move forward with the chaos of the high-profile relationship. “About three to four weeks [after their July dates] I managed to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana, and we camped out with each other under the stars. She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic. So then, we were really by ourselves which was crucial to me to make sure we had a chance to get to know each other,” Prince Harry revealed. “To take that huge leap of only two dates and then going effectively on holiday together in the middle of nowhere, sharing a tent together and all that kind of stuff. It was fantastic, it was absolutely amazing to get to know her as quickly as I did.”
