He gets those goosebumps every time… Prince Harry couldn’t hide his feelings about Meghan Markle during their first on-camera interview — and he had the best reaction to being called her future husband.
The couple sat down with the BBC immediately following their engagement announcement, and looked more in love than ever as they talked about the proposal and plans for the future. However, it was Prince Harry’s visible shudder when the interviewer reminded Meghan that she was getting a husband and new country. Watch the video below to see the cute exchange.
Following his little shimmy, Prince Harry, 33, was all smiles when he turned to Meghan, 36, and said, “That sounds nice, doesn’t it?” We seriously can’t get enough of the two of them.
Along with opening up about how they met (they were set up on a blind date by a famous mutual friend), Meghan also revealed that she would be retiring from acting to focus on philanthropy alongside the royal.
“I don’t see it as giving anything up, I just see it as a change,” she said. “It’s a new chapter, right? And also, keep in mind — I’ve been working on my show for seven years. So we were very, very fortunate to have that sort of longevity on a series, and for me, once we hit the 100 episode marker, I thought, ‘You know what? I have ticked this box and I feel really proud of the work I’ve done there and now it’s time to work as a team with [Harry].”

However, this is nothing new for the charitable Suits star, who has been active with many organizations including One Young World, which she has been involved with since 2014. “When I was asked to be a Counsellor at One Young World, my response was a resounding ‘yes,’” she wrote on her blog at the time. “One Young World invites young adults from all over the world who are actively working to transform the socio-political landscape by being the greater good. They are delegates who are speaking out against human rights violations, environmental crises, gender equality issues, discrimination, and injustice. They are the change.” She was honored by Vanity Fair for her humanitarian work earlier this year.
Prince Harry is one lucky guy. Just ask her co-star Patrick J. Adams!
