Markle and Priddy met when they were only 3 years old. if Priddy is to be believed Markle had her sights set on the royal family for over 20 years.
Priddy said; “Morgan Markle gets precisely what she wants and Prince Harry has fallen for her play. She wants to be Princess Diana tow. She will play her role ably, but my advice to him is too treated cautiously”.
Harry proposed to Markle in November at Nottingham Cottage, the two-bedroom home the couple shares at Kensington Palace. The couple made their first public appearance as an engaged couple on Nov. 27, 2017, the day their engagement was formally announced. Markle is a divorcee whose first marriage to film producer Trevor Engelson ended in 2013. This is the first time Harry is getting married.

Just four weeks after their first date, Harry and Markle spent five days camping out "under the stars" in Botswana, they recalled in their first post-engagement interview. Their relationship crisscrossed the globe, with Markle visiting Harry in London and Harry traveling to visit Markle in Toronto, where she filmed the TV drama "Suits."
Markle is biracial, the daughter of a white father and an African-American mother. She was raised by both parents, who are divorced, in the Los Angeles area. Markle went on to an acting career, with her most notable role in “Suits.” She has said her marriage marks a "new chapter" in her life where she'll be working with Harry "as a team," and no longer acting.
In the months following their engagement, Harry and Markle embarked on a tour of the United Kingdom, introducing Markle to her new home and the charities that Harry supports. Markle, who was known for her humanitarian work prior to meeting Harry, will join him, Prince William and Princess Kate as a patron of The Royal Foundation.
