Last September, Markle reportedly managed to recreate the Botswana camping trip that made them fall in love in their very own backyard a source told People.
Markle recreated the 2016 Botswana camping trip where they fell in love in their very own backyard, a source told People, complete with a tent and sleeping bags.
“It’s a place that means so much to them –and to Harry in particular — so Meghan wanted to bring that happy place to him on his day, so she set up a tent, got sleeping bags, cooked dinner and recreated Botswana where they fell in love.”
According to their 2017 engagement interview, Prince Harry and Markle had only shared two dates when he left for Africa.
“And then it was I think about three, maybe four weeks later that I managed to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana,” said Harry.
“And we camped out with each other under the stars. She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic.”
The couple, who recently celebrated their second anniversary, gave each other gifts relating to cotton, a traditional second-anniversary gift.
According to The Knot, cotton symbolizes two people becoming more interconnected and flexible. Last year’s theme was paper, with Meghan reportedly giving Harry her framed wedding speech.
