This May, Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle will tie the knot. The wedding ceremony will take place at Windsor Castle, and the world will be watching in anticipation. 

When the news publicly emerged about their engagement, fans immediately wanted to know details. Because they kept much of their relationship private, the world wanted to know about their royal love story. 

According to TIME, the couple was introduced in July 2016 by a mutual friend. By the time they got engaged in November 2017, they had been dating for around 15 months. However, the Kensington Palace did not release a public statement about their dating relationship until three months after they began dating. 

The Palace noted the harassment that Markle had been receiving since rumors about the couple began. They said that it was cruel and that Prince Harry was extremely disappointed that he could not protect her from it. 

After their engagement became public, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opened up about their time together. They talked about their long-distance relationship, their first date, and, of course, details about their wedding. 

Now, another interesting fact in the couple's love story has been revealed. While they were dating, Markle was in Canada filming "Suits." Markle's costar, actor Wendell Pierce, just revealed how Meghan kept her relationship under the radar. 

Pierce told Harry Connick Jr. that Markle had a code word for Prince Harry. The word was "London." Pierce said that anytime Markle said "London," they knew that's not what she really meant. 

Pierce said, "She met this nice guy and we always talking about him in code, really. You know, 'How you doing?' 'Oh, I'm going to London, coming from London, whatever.'"

After becoming engaged, Markle confirmed that she would be leaving her role on "Suits." 54-year-old Pierce commented about how he would miss his costar. 

He said, "I had a really wonderful moment as we were coming to an end of her time on the show. It was just she and I in the room and I said, 'I know your life is going to change, but always know, no matter where you are, I will always be your loving fake father."
