There are also many revelations made about the royal couple, such as –
1) Prince Charles Took William and Harry to Africa After Their Mother's Death
The first scene opens with brothers Prince William and Prince Harry traveling through Africa with their father, Prince Charles, just after Princess Diana's death. In real life, Charles brought his sons there to escape the glare of the spotlight following their mother's death on August 30, 1997. It was a formative trip for Harry, who fell in love with Africa during that time.
2) Meghan Took Issue with an Ivory Soap Commercial
The scene where Meghan was offended by a soap commercial geared towards women rings true. Meghan was inspired to change a TV commercial at the age of 11, after seeing a Procter & Gamble commercial that advertised its Ivory dishwashing soap solely to women. The commercial for the soap struck her as unfair and insensitive when she heard, "women all over America are fighting greasy pots and pans."
3) Meghan and Harry Were Set Up on a Blind Date
The newly-engaged couple revealed that they were set up on a blind date in July 2016 and knew very little about each other before they met. "It was definitely a set-up — it was a blind date," Harry said during the couple's revealing engagement interview. "It was a blind date for sure." And as is shown in the movie, Meghan did ask their matchmaker whether Harry was "nice."
4) One of Their First Dates Was a Trip to Botswana
Unlike what was depicted in the movie, Meghan didn't spend three days waiting for Harry to call her. In real life, Meghan and Harry's first date was quickly followed by two back-to-back dates in London, so he was already on speed-dial by that point! But after those initial dates, they did travel together to Botswana.
5) Harry and Meghan Wore Matching Bracelets
Just like in the movie, Harry did give Meghan a bracelet that matched his own. The couple started sporting "his and hers" jewelry early on in their relationship. They were spotted wearing the same blue beaded bracelet on several occasions.
6) Meghan's Ex-Husband Is Producing a Show Based on Her Relationship with Prince Harry
Trevor Engelson, Meghan's ex-husband, is producing an as-of-yet-untitled show with a premise that sounds awfully familiar — because it's based on his own relationship with Meghan, and her relationship with Prince Harry. The description of the show reads: "Divorce is hard. Sharing custody is harder. Sharing custody with the British Royal family when your wife marries a prince, in the unforgiving spotlight of London's tabloid media, is next level," according
7) Meghan Is Not the First Biracial Royal
Although it's doubtful that the Queen showed Meghan a portrait of Queen Charlotte, a biracial royal, during her palace visit, she is, in fact, a real royal. Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz was married to King George III and was queen for nearly 60 years, until she died in 1818. She's the grandmother of Queen Victoria and the great-great-great-great-grandmother of the current Queen Elizabeth.
