It seems like a decade ago that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry began their royal romance, but in actual fact, the timeline of their relationship only stretches back to the summer of 2016. (I know, you’ve probably got things in the fridge that have been around longer.)

The charitable couple were first introduced by a mutual friend who set them up on a blind date whilst Meghan was in London in July. For the following few months, they managed to keep their romance under wraps as the pair bounced back and forth from Toronto, where Meghan was based whilst filming Suits, and London.

But by November, the crafty couple were exposed when eagle-eyes noticed that the American actress was wearing an identical bracelet to the red-headed prince. Suddenly, the peaceful few months that they’d enjoyed together were over.

However, if we’d have all been a little bit savvier from the beginning then we may have been able to spot the clues much earlier on.

For example, she gave us some HUGE hints in this video…

Long before Meghan posted the photograph that would link her to the then fifth-in-line to the British throne, she featured in a video for the luxury cosmetics company, Bobbi Brown.

In the video, Meghan seems to hint towards something special in her life, whilst sporting the blue beaded bracelet that Prince Harry now-famously gifted her.

The short but sweet clip flashes Meghan’s apparent love of makeup as she applies products from Bobbi Brown’s new range whilst in the back of an SUV in New York City.

At the time, Markle was on a break from filming Suits, the legal drama which put her acting talents on the map.

It is now known that during breaks from shooting the successful show, Meghan would travel to London to cozy up with her beau. On several occasions, Harry also flew to Canada to spend time with Meghan – but could he have been in New York City that day?

It would certainly seem that Meghan has a reason to smile that day. Not only that but she has a definite glow to her skin – something that no amount of makeup could create!
