The Duke of Sussex has made a surprise appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden in which he opened up about the early stages of his relationship with the Duchess of Sussex.

In a clip, which has been posted on YouTube, Prince Harry talks about family life with his wife and son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor.

He told the TV host that his dating life has always been “flipped upside down”, due to the fact that he was in the royal family.

Discussing the early stages of dating Meghan, Harry said: “We got to spend an enormous amount of time just the two of us.

“There were no distractions, and that was great, it was an amazing thing. We went from zero to 60 in the first two months.”

Harry went on to say that he knew things were going to be serious with Meghan early on.

“The second date I was starting to think wow this is pretty special,” he told Corden.

“The way that we hit it off with each other and were just so comfortable in each other’s company.”

As for where they went on dates, Harry explained that they spent many evenings at his home, either watching TV or chatting.

“Then eventually once you become a couple you venture out to dinners and cinema and everything else,” he added.

Corden asked Harry what a “regular night in” for the couple is like now, to which the duke replied that they will usually make dinner for Archie, give him a bath, read to him, and then watch something in bed together as a couple.

Harry was also asked about life away from the royal family and what his plans are for the future since he and Meghan announced they would be stepping away from their roles in January last year.

“My life is always going to be about public service and Meghan signed up to that,” he said.

But Harry added that stepping down from his role “was never walking away, it was stepping back rather than stepping down”.

“I will never walk away,” Harry added. “I will always be contributing. My life is public service.”
