Speaking about Meghan's early relationship with Prince Harry, the book reveals: "Their courtship had been a smooth one.

"For snacks in between meals, she opted for apple slices and peanut butter. It was a far cry from Harry's bachelor days of eating takeout pizza, but he had already taken an interest in healthy living and it was fun to do it together."
