Speaking about the early days of his relationship with Meghan, Harry revealed the lengths the pair went to to hide their relationship when Meghan first came to stay at Kensington Palace in 2016. He told the show's hosts that he and Meghan would go on secret supermarket trips together, pretending they didn't know one and another and texting from across the aisles.

When asked whether he does "mundane things" like going to the supermarket, Harry explained, "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."

He continued, "There's people looking at me, giving me all these weird looks, and coming up to me and saying 'hi'. I texted her saying 'is this the right one', and she said 'no you want parchment paper', and I'm like 'where's the parchment paper?!'."

"It was nice with a baseball cap on looking down at the floor, walking along the street and trying to stay incognito," he said, before adding, "Not sure how many times I've done that, trying to walk down the street and stay incognito is like 'Whoa signpost! Someone鈥檚 dog!'... it's amazing how much chewing gum you see and how many shoes."

While Harry didn't reveal which supermarket he and Meghan met up in, Meghan was previously spotted shopping at Whole Foods in London back in 2016.

Any guesses on where they might have been? Aldi? Lidl? We're definitely keeping our eyes peeled next time we're down the shops.
