  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared details about their first date in their new docuseries.

  • When Harry was 30 minutes late, Meghan said she wondered if he had "an ego."

  • "I couldn't understand why he would be late," she said. "I was just not interested in that."

In their new Netflix docuseries "Harry & Meghan," which premiered on Thursday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opened up about the beginning of their relationship.

After revealing that they first met over Instagram, the couple shared new details about their very first date and how Harry was 30 minutes late after getting stuck in traffic.

Meghan said she was in London for Wimbledon in 2016 when she and Harry made plans to meet. Those first few texts between the two were displayed on screen as Harry asked the actress, "So come on — what you doing tomorrow night? Hope you're having fun over there!"

"Heading back to Soho," Meghan replied, referring to the London neighborhood. "I have a dinner tomorrow at 8 but can do drinks tomorrow night. Would that work? Maybe 6?"

"You're ON!" Harry texted back.

The couple met in person for the first time at Soho House on Dean Street, but Harry was half an hour late.

"I couldn't understand why he would be late," she said in the docuseries. "But he kept texting. He was like, 'I'm in traffic. I'm so sorry.'"

"I was panicking, I was freaking out," Harry said. "I was like, sweating."

Meghan said since she didn't know Harry, she wondered if this was his usual style: "I was like, 'Oh, is this what he does?' Got it. Like this, I'm not doing. I'm not gonna sit —"

"What's that supposed to mean?" Harry interjected with a giggle.

"Like you're one of those guys who have so much of an ego that any girl would sit waiting for a half hour for you," Meghan said. "I was just not interested in that."

But when Harry walked in, Meghan realized his apologies had been genuine.

"I was a hot, sweaty, red ball of mess," Harry said.

"You were just so sweet," Meghan added. "You were like, genuinely so embarrassed and late."

The couple only spent an hour together that first night, but Meghan said the date was "refreshingly fun."

"We were childlike together," she added.

Later that night, Meghan asked Harry if they could have dinner the next night. This time, she was the one who was late ... by five minutes.

"I was like, 'You can be as late as you want cause I ain't moving,'" Harry recalled.

After that dinner, Harry and Meghan both knew they wanted to be together.

"That was when it just hit me like, this woman is amazing," Harry said. "She is everything that I've been looking for."
