 Inside Meghan Markle’s Relationship With Prince Harry

In 2016, Prince Harry was somewhat of a third wheel with his brother, Prince William, and sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. American actress Meghan Markle was also single following the end of her first marriage, and little did the pair know their paths would cross. In their engagement interview, Harry and Meghan said they were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend they declined to name to protect the person’s privacy. 

Per E! News, speculations pointed to designer Misha Nonoo or, potentially, Meghan’s friend Jessica Mulroney, a stylist with many high-profile clients, but the media outlet revealed the real matchmaker to be royal confidant Violet von Westenholz. Violet’s father is a friend of Prince Charles, according to E! News, and so she herself has been close to Harry for years. Meghan met the socialite through her work with Ralph Lauren, and the two became fast friends. An anonymous source told E! News, “When Harry told Violet he was having trouble finding someone, Violet said she might just have the perfect girl for him.”

Harry and Meghan went on a dinner date at London’s Dean Street Townhouse, according to the book “Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family” by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand (via Harper’s Bazaar). The rest, as they say, is history. Fun fact: von Westenholz’s husband is named Archie … just like the couple’s young son.
