Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s love story began on Instagram. The two ended up in Buckingham as husband and wife. While they have become a controversial couple, their love story will always be remembered as an event that started on social media.
“I was scrolling through my feed and one of my friends and someone who was a friend had this video of the two of them, like a Snapchat,” Harry revealed in Episode 1 of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s six-episode docuseries on Netflix, titled Harry & Meghan.
In a twist, Harry then went on to reveal that Meghan had a dog face filter turned on for the image.
“I was like ‘who is THAT?!'” said Harry.
Meghan revealed that a friend of hers said that “Prince Haz” had asked about her and suggested they meet.
“I said, who’s that?” Meghan revealed with a smile. “I asked if I could see his feed.”
“That, to me, was the best barometer,” she continued. “So I went through and it was just like beautiful photography and all these environmental shots, and this time he was spending in Africa.
The next day they swapped numbers. And the rest is history.
Instagram/social media apps and happy endings
In this age of technology, many people get dates through social media, dating sites, and apps. Hollywood stars are no different. Specifically, Instagram and Twitter played e-cupid to some celebrities and these couples are still happily together or married.
While many online dating attempts ended in disaster, these love stories have a happy ending.
