During one sweet moment, the Duke of Sussex speaks about how his brother, Prince William, and sister-in-law, Princess Kate reacted when they learned that he was to go on a date with Meghan Markle. The royal couple were 'mega fans' of Suits and they couldn't believe that Harry was about to date one of its major stars.

The Duke also explained his desires to be seen as equal to his brother and having a partner, hoping that they would be viewed as a foursome, something that William had tried downplaying his hopes around.

However, they ended up upsetting the Duke as they both cautioned him not to get his hopes up over the potential union. Thankfully their fears were unfounded and Harry and Meghan have been married since 2018.

Harry also shared details about Meghan's meetings with members of his family, including his brother and father.

Harry wanted them to be seen as a foursome

Despite being such a fan, it appears that Kate wasn't present when Meghan first met William, instead being out with the children, but Harry revealed the general meeting went well.

He also revealed how Meghan managed to impress King Charles and the late Queen, as she wore her hair down, a style that the pair both approved of.

Harry touches on all aspects of his life in the book, including the moment that he learned about the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
