How Meghan And Kate Pulled Off Their Fairy-Tale Weddings In Their Own Ways

2. The First Date: Meghan Markle
Talk about destiny: Meghan and Harry met on a blind date! "We were introduced actually by a mutual friend," Harry revealed to the BBC after the couple announced they were engaged.

"Because I’m from the States," the Duchess explained at the time, "you don’t grow up with the same understanding of the royal family. I didn’t know much about him, so the only thing that I had asked [our mutual friend] when she said that she wanted to set us up, was, 'Well is he nice?' Cause if he wasn't kind, it just didn’t seem like it would make sense."

Clearly, it worked out!
