7 of the Sweetest Things Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Have Ever Said About Each Other

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are making headlines all over the world after announcing their royal engagement. It’s no surprise why; this duo is clearly very much in love, and you can tell by the way they speak about each another.

But at first, you could tell how much they cared about one another by how they barely said anything about each other. Remember when Meghan Markle was being bullied by press and paparazzi shortly after rumors began to fly that they were dating? Prince Harry, the chivalrous gentleman that he is, issued a rare statement from the palace as a warning to anyone harassing her or her family. He refused to delve into personal details too soon, and instead focused his energy on protecting his lady and her privacy. (Princess Diana would’ve been so proud.) Similarly, Meghan Markle kept her lips (mostly) zipped about her relationship, and refused to read any negative news or criticism from naysayers— focusing instead on nurturing their relationship. Instead of entertaining any criticism, they put all their energy into letting their love flourish and grow into something truly magical. And it looks like it sure paid off!

Now, enough time has passed that they feel ready to tell the world their love story, and we couldn't be happier to hear it. They haven't revealed too many secrets yet, but what they have said speaks volumes about how much they cherish each other. From Prince Harry reminiscing about the first time he met Meghan to Meghan getting adorably thrilled about Prince Harry's romantic proposal, these quotes could warm anyone's heart on even the coldest day. We're more than happy to hear more — whenever they're ready to say it, of course.
