The world has been enthralled with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship ever since rumors swirled that the pair were dating back in 2016. The attention and criticism the couple received were endless, which ultimately led to their decision this past January to take a step back from their senior royal roles.
Months after their unprecedented announcement, a new biography Finding Freedom was released which dives into the details of the challenges the couple faced in the royal limelight. The biography was written by longtime royal experts and correspondents Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie and used various inside sources to dive into some of the little-known facts about Meghan and Harry’s relationship and role in the royal family. Follow along as we roundup some of the most interesting revelations from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s biography Finding Freedom:
Harry had a secret Instagram account while he was dating Meghan
According to the book’s authors, Harry had a secret Instagram account with the handle @SpikeyMau5 while he was dating Meghan. The handle was inspired by one of his favorite DJs Deadmau5 and he reportedly used a mouse-shaped helmet as his profile picture. “His messages were often short and full of emojis, in particular the ghost emoji, which he often used instead of a smiley face,” the book reads. “For what reason? Nobody knows. But Meghan found his texting etiquette funny and adorable, just like the prince.”
