In an interview with BBC News on the day of the announcement the pair revealed how they met and it turns out it was a set up!

The pair explained: "We were introduced by a mutual friend...and then we met once, and then twice back to back on two dates in London last July".

Prince Harry continued: "It was then three or maybe four weeks later that I managed to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana and we camped out with each other under the stars".
