Prince Harry knew Meghan Markle was his 'soulmate' when she peed in the woods on first holiday, book claims

Prince Harry was "delightfully surprised" by what he saw on his first overseas holiday with Meghan Markle soon after they met - and what he saw was her taking bathroom breaks in the woods. 

In what might be the strangest claim made by the new royal biography Finding Freedom, the authors assert that Harry was charmed by Meghan's "down-to-earth attitude" when they visited Botswana for a luxury glamping trip in 2016, just six weeks after their first date. 

According to royal commentators Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durrand, the former Suits actress wowed the prince by "cleaning her face with baby wipes" and "happily wandering into the woodlands" to go to the loo, despite their $3000 per night tent being equipped with an ensuite bathroom.

Harry was also allegedly impressed that Meghan only brought a singular backpack with her for the whole trip, in which she had packed sunscreen to protect Harry's fair complexion. 

Meghan apparently returned from the holiday "spellbound", telling a friend she had never felt that safe or close to someone in such a short amount of time of knowing them. 

The 'bombshell' unauthorised biography hit British bookshelves this week, having made headlines for its excruciating detail about how the couple first met and the subsequent 'rift' between the pair and the royal family that allegedly followed. 

Harry and Meghan have insisted they had no part in contributing to the book, which claims to have spoken to over 100 sources, including 'close friends of Harry and Meghan' as well as royal aides and palace staff. It promises that every piece of information included has come from at least two sources.
