“Almost immediately they were almost obsessed with each other,” a friend of Meghan and Harry’s told Finding Freedom authors Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie. “It was as if Harry was in a trance.” A source also informed the authors that the future Duke and Duchess of Sussex chatted over drinks for nearly three hours. When the blind date ended, both Meghan and Harry departed without a kiss, the book entails.
The very next night, they returned to Soho House’s Dean Street Townhouse for dinner, the book explains, noting that Meghan and Harry snuck into a staff entrance. When inside, the pair was apparently waited on by only one staff member to ensure privacy. “Harry knew they would be together at that point,” the friend said. “She was ticking every box.”
The feeling was presumably mutual, as Meghan gushed over her date to one of her girlfriends, Finding Freedom reveals. “Do I sound crazy when I say this could have legs?” Meghan asked her gal pal, via phone, according to the book. The authors also noted that Meghan found Harry’s texts — which were often emojis, specifically the ghost emoji — to be funny and adorable, just like him.
“He definitely didn’t hide the fact that he was keen,” said a friend of Meghan’s. “He wanted her to know he was very interested.”
