Prince Harry recalls the moment he knew Meghan Markle was his ‘soulmate’

Prince Harry realized Meghan Markle was his “soulmate” during one of their trips to Africa.

The Duke of Sussex, 37, recalled the sweet memory Monday while delivering a keynote address in honor

of Nelson Mandela International Day at the the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

Since I first visited Africa at 13 years old, I’ve always found hope on the continent,” he shared,

calling it his “lifeline” where he’s “found peace and healing time and time again.”

“It’s where I felt closest to my mother and sought solace after she died,

he went on, “and where I knew I’d found a soulmate in my wife.”

Harry and Meghan, 40, visited the continent twice during their courtship and once after they were married.

The couple first traveled to Botswana shortly after they began dating in July 2016
