Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s whirlwind romance was hidden from the world in plain sight, with the Duke and Duchess choosing an unusual date location for their first trip out in London.

The Duke of Sussex chatted candidly with Dax Shepard about Royal life and the early days of his relationship with Meghan Markle on the acto's podcast Armchair Expert.

Harry, who now lives in California, revealed to Dax that he feels "a bit more free" state-side than he did while living in the UK and can now walk around with his head held high.

The 39-year-old said that Meghan’s "shoulder’s have dropped" too, and went on to talk about the secrecy involved in the early stages of their relationship.

Prince Harry told Dax Meghan met up with the Duke "in a supermarket in London" when she first came to stay with him.

The couple pretended they "didn’t know each other" and were "texting each other" from opposite aisles as Harry roamed the store in a base ball cap.

Harry said he was constantly looking at the floor trying not to be recognised but would get "weird looks."

Others would come up to him and say Hi and unbeknown to them, the Prince was actually on a date with the former Suits star.

The pair were even "texting each other from the other side of the aisles," he told Dax.

Prince Harry said: "The first time Meghan and I met up for her to come and stay with me, we met up in a supermarket in London, pretending we didn't know each other, texting each other from the other side of the aisles.

"There's people looking at me, giving me all these weird looks, and coming up to me and saying hi."
