Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been married for two years and together for four years. The spark and romance are still there. They even broke protocol many times just to touch each other and sneak a kiss here and there. Did you know that members of the Royal family don't show affection in public with one another? According to Express, although an unwritten rule, no members of the Royal family show any public displays of affection toward each other.

That didn't stop Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with showing their love for each other, though. They didn't care and still touched each other and showed affection for each other every chance they got.

What we mean by unwritten rule is that although there is no rule written saying that any members of the Royal family cannot show affection in public, since the Queen never did with Prince Philip, all other members of the family followed suit. Except for former Royal couple, Harry and Meghan Markle. Although no one ever saw Prince William and Kate Middleton show any affection toward each other when in public, this definitely didn't stop Harry and Meghan. They were constantly photographed holding hands or touching each other in some way.

Although we haven't seen much of them lately because of the Coronavirus and their exit from the Royal family, moving to Canada and then again to Los Angeles, California, when they are seen out in public, they are always seen in sync with each other.

Ever since the couple first met, they have had that romantic spark that everyone could spot a mile away. How did they first meet? What did the couple do on their first date together? Where were they when they first met back in 2016?

The couple met in the summer of 2016. Meghan was doing press in London for her hit show, Suits and she was single again. Meghan and Harry have a mutual friend who actually set them on a blind date. Fashion designer, Miksha Nonoo decided to set Harry and Meghan up with each other on a blind date to see how things went with them.

According to the book that was written by Royal experts, Omid Scobie and Caroline Durand, Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and a Making of a Modern Family, back then Meghan Markle already had high profile status since she was an actress in Hollywood. Because of this, and since Harry had high profile status being a Prince and all, they were setup to meet each other at the Soho House's Dean Street Townhouse.

Although Harry was late for their first date, when he walked into the room and first saw Meghan, he was already smitten with her. He said that day, "I'm really going to have to up my game here. Sit down and make sure I've got good chat."

Harry knew Meghan was the one he was going to be with for the rest of his life right away. In fact, their first date lasted around three hours. A friend said about it, "Harry knew they would be together at that point. She was ticking every box fast."

The first date went so well that they agreed to have their second date the next day at the same place. Although Meghan had to go back to work on her show, Harry talked her into a third date with him in Botswana where they visited the elephant sanctuary and camped out together under the stars.

They were supposed to have a casual dinner during their first date, but they had an immediate spark with each other that they barely touched the food. However, they did have drinks. Harry had a beer and Meghan had a martini. But during their second date, they did eat an actual meal together.
