‘I’d never seen anyone so beautiful’: Prince Harry reveals setting eyes on Meghan for the first time was like a ‘punch in the throat’ because of her ‘wild joy’ and ‘angelic face’ – even behind a funny dog filter!

A clip of the Duchess of Sussex with a playful dog filter has resurfaced on social media after Prince Harry described seeing her for the first time online.

Writing in his explosive memoir Spare, the Duke of Sussex, 38, recounts coming across a video of Meghan with their mutual friend Violet Von Westenholz and being immediately drawn to her ‘angelic face.’

‘I’d never seen anyone so beautiful,’ he said, saying it felt like a ‘punch in the throat’ because of Meghan’s ‘wild joy’.

After the release of the royal’s book yesterday, a fan tweeted an old clip, thought to be from July 14 2016, of Meghan and her Suits co-star Sarah Rafferty using a dog filter.

In the clip, the filter gives Meghan and Sarah dog ears and noses, with long pink tongues being revealed when they smile.

The pair were messing around ahead of an appearance on the Today Show, on which they discussed the upcoming sixth season of legal drama Suits.

At that point, Meghan had met Prince Harry twice, with their second date taking place in London ten days previously, on July 4.

The video is very similar to the one Harry came across on Instagram which led to the couple’s first meeting.

In the couple’s explosive Netflix docu-series, released in December, Prince Harry revealed that the first time he laid eyes on Meghan, she had used a social media dog filter in a video.

He also has recounted the moment in his memoir, Spare.

He said his friend Violet Von Westenholz shared a video of herself with Meghan with the canine look on Instagram. Prince Harry came across the clip while scrolling on the app.

The Duke of Sussex said the short clip stopped him in his tracks and he kept returning to it.

‘There was an energy about her, a wild joy and playfulness,’ he said. ‘There was something in the way she smiled, the way she interacted with Violet, the way she gazed into the camera. Confident. Free. She believed life was one grand adventure, I could see that. What a privilege it would be, I thought, to join her on that journey.’

The couple also talked about the dog filter video in their explosive Netflix docu-series Harry and Meghan with the Duchess of Sussex, 41, saying the story was 'ridiculous'

He immediately asked his friend who she was, and asked her to pass Meghan his Instagram handle.

When the Duke of Sussex recounted the moment in the couple’s Netflix documentary, his wife giggled and said it was ‘ridiculous.’

‘Oh gosh, isn’t that whole thing, it’s got like doggy ears,’ a laughing Meghan said, before Harry added: ‘That was the first thing, “I was like who is that?”.’ His wife countered: ‘That’s ridiculous.’

Harry messaged the friend they had in common and she mentioned it to Meghan, who stalked the Prince’s Instagram feed to see ‘what he was about’.

However, Harry and Meghan have previously claimed they met on a blind date. In 2017 Harry told the BBC: ‘It was definitely a set-up – it was a blind date. It was a blind date for sure.’

Viewers questioned the variation, with one person writing on Twitter: ‘Harry and Meghan are remarkably bad at remembering which lies they have told.’

During the segment, Meghan also revealed the email the mutual friend sent her, which read: ‘Between you and I, thought you might want to know this, being newly single and all.

I put our Snapchat on Instagram and Prince Haz follows me (he’s a friend) he called me last night dying to meet you. I just might have to set you up,’ the message added.

Meghan admitted she asked to see the royal’s social media feed: ‘So that’s the thing. People say “did you Google him?” “No.”

‘But that’s your homework. You’re like “Hmm let me see what they’re about in their feed,” not what someone else says about them but what they are putting out about themselves. That to me was the best barometer,’ she explained.

‘Then we got each other’s numbers. We were just constantly in touch, and I went “let’s meet”,’ Harry added.

A friend of Meghan’s named Silver Tree said that Meghan texted her saying: ‘Silver, you’re not gonna believe this. And basically told me that she was going out on a date with him. We thought it was really funny. Like “In what world does this happen?”.
