Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne, a close friend and former agent of Meghan Markle, has revealed now how the actress felt in the run-up to her meeting Prince Harry, and after.
American actress Meghan Markle met Prince Harry after they were set up by a mutual friend.
They immediately hit if off and the rest, they say, is history.
“Meghan had just told me, ‘I’m going on a date tonight’,” Gina recalled. “With Prince Harry! I looked at how stunning she was and I just thought: ‘There’s no way he’s going to be able to resist her. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing but I think she could barely believe it either.”
“We were both extremely excited. I jokingly asked if she knew what she was letting herself in for and she said: ‘Well, it’s going to be an experience and at least it will be a fun night’.”
Following their date, Meghan described Harry to Gina as “a real gentleman” as well as “genuinely nice”.
“[And] when I asked if she would see him again she said: ‘Well, it looks like it’.”
Prince Harry will be getting married to American actress Meghan Markle on the 19th of May this year. However, Meghan Markle has to keep to these Royal Rules whether she likes it or not as being part of the royal family. From not travelling without funeral clothes to no selfies and others.

Cute dog-face filters will be a thing of the past for Markle when she becomes a duchess. And it looks like she’s already practicing this rule. On her first official event with Prince Harry, the actress revealed that she is no longer allowed to take selfies with fans when a couple asked for a picture with her. “We’re not allowed to do selfies,” she reportedly told the couple.The rule was established to encourage people to make eye contact and make conversation with royals, instead of turning their backs to them (a huge no-no) to take a selfie. “Turning your back to the Duke and Duchess and taking a selfie is discouraged if at all possible. I know it’s fun to do, but they much would rather see your face,” Jennifer Gehmair, a Royal Family etiquette expert, told Smooth Radio.
