New tell-all Book Reveals How Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Hid Relationship From Paparazzi
Former Suits star's romance with Harry first emerged in October 2016 as Harry visited the 36-year-old's in Toronto where she filmed Suits.
A story was leaked that Harry had cancelled a flight to Toronto to try and make it look like he was in the UK, but photographers and reporters descended on Meghan's home regardless,
According to the book, Meghan suggested they went to stay with her friends Ben Mulroney and Jessica Mulroney, and their three Kids Brian, John and Isobel.
Spread over three floors and with impressive 14-foot-high ceilings, the Mulroneys' open-plan home was a sanctuary for Meghan and Harry,
A source said,
When Harry came to visit the family he brought a bag filled with gifts. He won the kids over in an instant. He was brilliant with them and I think what swung it for Meghan was how good Harry was with them. I actually think that might have been the moment Meghan really fell for Harry. He got to know the Mulroneys quite well, and they liked Harry from the beginning.
A stylist Jessica Mulroney is reportedly one of Meghan's best friends, while Ben is a television host who won Harry over with stories about his mother, Princess Diana.
Ben, the son of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, recounted lively stories of how Princess Diana once stayed with his family during an official tour to Canada and, finding herself bored with talking politics after dinner, had ventured up to the nursery to play with Ben and his three siblings.
