"I'd never watched Suits, I'd never heard of Meghan before, and I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her [for the first time]," Harry shared. "I was like, 'Wow, OK. I'm going to have to up my game here. I'm going to sit down and make sure I got a good chat.'"
Markle chimed in, explaining that being from the United States, she didn't grow up with the same understanding of the royal family. "While I now understand very cleary there's a global interest there, I didn't know much about him," she confessed. "So, the only thing there that I had asked [our friend] when she wanted to set us up was -- I had one question, 'Was he nice?' Because if he wasn't kind, it didn't seem like it would make sense."
"I think for both of us though, it was really refreshing," she continued. "Given that I didn't know a lot about him, everything that I've learned about him I learned through him, as opposed to having grown up around different news stories or tabloids or whatever else. Anything I learned about him and his family was what he would share with me and vice versa. So, for both of us, it was a really authentic and organic way to get to know each other."
