Almost a year ago, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry started silently dating. Their relationship, Prince Harry officially confirmed last November. In an unconventional move, the prince released a statement about his relationship from Kensington Palace, after a lot of speculations. “Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her,” his Kensington Palace statement read. “It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm.”
Now, for the first time ever the ‘Suits’ star spoke up about her relationship with her royal beau. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Meghan shared that the attention she gets from the press after she and Harry started dating, has been “challenging.”

“It has its challenges, and it comes in waves—some days it can feel more challenging than others.”
“And right out of the gate it was surprising the way things changed. But I still have this support system all around me, and, of course, my boyfriend’s support,” Markle revealed.
“I can tell you that at the end of the day I think it’s really simple,” she revealed.

“We’re two people who are really happy and in love. 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. Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship,” she continued.
Apparently, Markle is not interested in what the tabloids say. “I don’t read any press. I haven’t even read press for Suits. The people who are close to me anchor me in knowing who I am. The rest is noise.”
Meghan shared that her relationship with Prince Harry started in July 2016. However, she wants the full story to stay private and for now she just has to say this: “We’re a couple. 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.”

No matter how challenging it has been the harshness of the press, Meghan Markle calmly deals with them. She is just really enjoying being with Prince Harry.
