In the interview, he talked about when he first heard about their romance. Meghan called him and first said that she had a boyfriend. Then she revealed that he was British and finally revealed that he was Prince Harry. They had to keep it under wraps at first and only called him “H” so the press wouldn’t find out. He says that Harry asked for his permission to marry Meghan over the phone and he, of course, gave his permission and said that Harry is a gentleman.
