“Suits” star Meghan Markle finally opened up about her relationship with Prince Harry in the October issue of Vanity Fair.

“We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception,” she added. “Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.”
“We’re a couple,” she continued. “We’re in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”
Rumors about the two dating started just over a year ago. The actress said they met through friends in London in July 2016. Her good friend, tennis superstar Serena Williams, gave her advice on how to handle all the attention.
“I told her, ‘You’ve got to be who you are, Meghan. You can’t hide,'” Williams said.
