Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were quietly dating since the Summer of 2016, but we didn't get a glimpse of them together until later in that year. According to The Sun, the prince and the Suits star stepped out for a date night in London and were photographed leaving a production of Peter Pan Goes Wrong at the Apollo Theater. They were bundled up from the chill in jackets and matching beanies and appeared to be happily chatting as they made their way down the bustling Shaftesbury Avenue and admired the Christmas lights on Piccadilly. The outlet reports that the couple was joined by "just one royal police protection officer."
The outing likely came days after Harry and Meghan were spotted picking out a Christmas tree together at the Pines and Needles outdoor market in London; the business's owner, Sam Lyle, told The Mirror that they "were completely charming together and blissfully unaware that our jaws had hit the floor." After purchasing the tree for $70, Harry tucked it under his arm and he and Meghan "walked away after exchanging Christmas pleasantries." Before their rendezvous across the pond, Harry traveled to Toronto — where Meghan lives while filming Suits — and she was seen buying flowers while wearing a gold necklace with an "H" and "M" on it.
