New Biography Keeps Meghan And Prince Harry’s Matchmaker A Mystery

“The couple themselves prefer to keep the story of their matchmaker a mystery, even to close friends”

Much is known about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s love story, but there’s one part that still remains a mystery, and the couple seem to like it that way.

In the new book “Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan, and the Making of a Modern Royal Family” written by royal insiders: Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, the authors recount the early days of Meghan and Harry’s courtship.

While detailing their first date at Soho House’s Dean Street Townhouse property, the book mentions everything, from the “rather rude” wallpaper featuring women’s genitalia to the couple’s drink order (a beer for Harry, martini for Meghan). But the couple’s official matchmaker for their first blind date is still a mystery.

The authors noted: “The couple themselves prefer to keep the story of their matchmaker a mystery, even to close friends” and that “Meghan’s only clue to pals at the time was that her first encounter with Harry was ‘serendipitous.’”

Just 16 months later, Harry proposed and Meghan called the proposal “just an amazing surprise” in an interview with the BBC after the engagement announcement on Nov. 27, 2017.

Though the official Clarence House announcement said the two got engaged earlier that month, “Finding Freedom” says the two got engaged three months prior to announcing publicly.

“It was a moment they would never forget,” the authors wrote of the special moment in the new book, adding that “it would be some time before they shared the news with the world. For now, it would be their little secret.”

The two were later pictured on their first official public outing in September 2017 at the Invictus Games where Meghan wore a “husband shirt.”

A spokesperson revealed to Huffpost that the royal couple did not participate in the book in any way.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to ‘Finding Freedom,‘” the spokesperson said. “This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting.”
