Meghan Markle was enamored of Prince Harry’s ‘funny and cute’ texting style and his use of the ghost emoji instead of a smiling face, according to the latest clip from the Finding Freedom bombiography.
The 38-year-old Duchess of Sussex, who currently lives in LA with Harry and their son Archie, is said to have found the Duke’s texting style endearing after their first date in the summer of 2016.
Harry wanted the American ex-actress to ‘know he was very interested’ and did not hide his enthusiasm, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claim in their new book – excerpts of which were published in People today.

After meeting friends at London’s Soho House, Harry wasted no time texting Meghan, who was back in her hotel room, according to a source.
“His messages were often short and full of emojis, especially the ghost emoji, which he often used instead of a smiling face,” the royal authors wrote.
‘Why? Nobody knows. But Meghan found his texting etiquette funny and cute, just like the prince. ‘
A friend of Meghan added, “He has absolutely not disguised his enthusiasm. He wanted her to know he was very interested. ‘
The book also claims that Harry was the first to say ‘I love you’ in his relationship with Meghan, with friends revealing that the pair were ‘immediately obsessed’ with each other.

The pair felt ‘tangible appeal’ after their first date, with Harry reportedly departing in a ‘trance’ and Meghan telling friends ‘this could have legs’.
Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, was written by royal viewers Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand
Harry had a beer, while Meghan had a martini while discussing their work, so preoccupied that their snacks were neglected.
Finding Freedom is a biography written by journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, who are supporters of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and have set out to ‘correct the record’ and spotlight their charitable activities.
It makes new claims about tensions between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the royal family – but one source claims it will “open old wounds at a time when everyone wanted to move on.”
Speaking to Vanity Fair, the family source said, “I think the person who will be most upset is the Queen.”
The Sussexes say they didn’t contribute to the book, but Scobie and Durand’s account is based on extensive insight from the couple’s friends.
The writers say they have spoken to over 100 sources, including “close friends of Harry and Meghan’s, royal assistants and palace staff (past and present),” all of the information in the book containing “at least two sources.”
