Harry & Meghan came to Netflix on Dec. 8 and Dec. 15, giving fans more insight into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s love story than ever before. Throughout the six hour-long episodes, Harry and Meghan gave details of their courtship — including how they met, their first date, and their proposal. While sharing the details of their romance, the couple gushed about each other (as they should).

The docuseries wasn’t all lovey-dovey, though. It also shed light on the aggressive British tabloids, who published racist pieces about Meghan and her family. Through all of the pain, however, Meghan and Harry stayed steadfast in their commitment to one another — even when they were dealing with the challenges of a long-distance relationship. “We just did everything we could to be there for each other,” Meghan explained. “We had to stay connected. We wouldn’t have survived it if we weren’t.”

The couple came from two very different backgrounds, Harry a world-famous British prince and Meghan a successful American actor. As Harry put it, “She sacrificed everything she ever knew, the freedom that she had, to join me in my world. And then pretty soon after that, I ended up sacrificing everything that I know to join her in her world.”

Despite the many, many hardships they’ve faced, they now seem stronger than ever, and Harry and Meghan’s quotes about each other are ultra-romantic. Read on for some of their sweetest words about their love.

On Their Early Days Of Dating

  • “In the beginning, our relationship was this guarded little treasure ... Everything was just texts and FaceTimes and talking for hours, and it just felt exciting ... It was relaxed and easy. We just got to know each other, truly like any other couple where you’re figuring out, ‘What do you like to eat? What do you like to cook? What kind of movies do you like?’” — Meghan
  • “[Meghan] was late ... I was like, ‘You can be as late as you want. I ain’t moving. I want to see you again.’” — Harry
  • “He was just so fun. Just so refreshingly fun. And that was the thing, we were like childlike together.” — Meghan
  • “When I got to know Meghan more and more, I was like, ‘Oh, I’m really falling in love with this girl. So despite my fear, I just opened my heart to see what’s going to happen.’” — Harry
  • “[On our second date], that was when it just hit me. I was like, ‘This girl, this woman, is amazing, is everything I’ve been looking for. And she’s so comfortable and so relaxed in my company.’” — Harry
  • “So much of what Meghan is and how she is is so similar to my mom. She has the same compassion, she has the same empathy, she has the same confidence. She has this warmth about her.” — Harry
  • “I remember my family first meeting her and being incredibly impressed. Some of them didn’t quite know what to do with themselves… They were surprised, maybe surprised that a ginger could land such a beautiful woman and such an intelligent woman.” — Harry
  • “They meet on July 3, 2016 in London, and they giggle endlessly. So the next day they have their second date and he brings her cupcakes because it’s 4th of July. ‘A bittersweet celebration,’ he says. Ironic really. Her country’s independence from his country. Yet in this moment they know they don’t want to be independent of each other.” — Meghan

On Their Secret Trip To Botswana

  • “So I get there, this is the first time I’ve seen him in a month. We were very awkward at first, like, ‘Oh God, do we kiss, do we..?’ And I just remember he handed me a chicken sandwich.” —Meghan
  • “To start, we were sitting next to each other [in the land cruiser], then we progressed to holding hands, then we squeezed in a kiss amid the bumps, and then everything felt totally normal and natural. We had to get to know each other before the rest of the world and the media joined in.” — Harry
  • “He was like, ‘I promise I’ll keep you safe.’ And I believed him.” — Meghan
  • “You put a lot of faith and a lot of trust in me.” — Harry
  • “We could both just be completely ourselves. There was no distraction, there was no cellphone reception, there’s no mirror, there’s no bathroom, there was no, ‘How do I look?’ Thankfully we really liked each other.” — Meghan
  • “And after a month of long-distance courtship, they settle into the quiet of Botswana, and amidst whatever momentary worries that creep in, they look at each other and think, ‘Whatever, world. We’re in.’” — Meghan

  • “I don’t know how we did it, but we did it. Most of the time, we were on the other side of the Atlantic. She was in Canada working. I would try to get over and see her, and she would come over and see me a hell of a lot more.” — Harry
  • “I would go straight from set to the airport. Get there, land, get harassed, try to get to him discretely, hunker down. And then fly right back and go to set. Just rinse and repeat constantly.” — Meghan

On Dating In The Public Eye

  • “We just did everything we could to be there for each other. We had to stay connected. We wouldn’t have survived it if we weren’t.” — Meghan
  • “Dating became a combination of car chases, anti-surveillance driving, and disguises, which isn’t a particularly healthy way to start a relationship. But we always came at it with as much humor as possible. So whenever we saw each other, we would just give each other a massive hug and try and have as much of a normal life as possible.” — Harry

On Their Proposal

  • “In the North garden, being overlooked by the staff flats, I got 15 of those electric candles… Of course I got down on one knee. Of course I did.” — Harry
  • “He was down on one knee and I was just like, ‘Yes!’ We were so joyful and excited. And I was like, ‘Ah, we’re doing this.’” — Meghan

On Their Wedding

  • “The whole thing was surreal. It was at that moment, I could also see H. … H and I are really, really good at finding each other in the chaos. When we find each other, we reconnect to, ‘Oh it's you. It's you.’ It's not that the rest of it doesn't matter, but … the rest of it feels temporary.” — Meghan

On Their Love Story

  • “This is a great love story, and the craziest thing is that I think this love story is just getting started. She sacrificed everything she ever knew, the freedom that she had, to join me in my world. And then pretty soon after that, I ended up sacrificing everything that I know to join her in her world.” — Harry
  • “From my perspective, I fell head over heels in love with her because my heart told me that she was the one that I was gonna spend the rest of my life with. And then, once I got to know her even more, my head then told me, ‘Well, she’s absolutely perfect for the role as well.’” —Harry
  • “When it came to Meghan, that was, I guess, the case of finding a needle in a haystack.” — Harry
  • “What she was already doing, what I was already doing, that sort of came together in this beautiful matrimony.” — Harry
  • “Once upon a time, there was a girl from LA. Some people called her an actress. And there was a guy from London. Some people called him a prince. All of those people didn’t fully get it because this is the love story of a boy and a girl who were meant to be together... They would love and garden and travel and laugh, and rack up more air miles than any couple could have. And when the tides were rough, they squeezed each other tighter. ‘Nothing can break us,’ they’d say. For this love, she was a fighter. I appreciate, respect, and honor you, my treasure, for the family we will create and our love story that will last forever. So I ask you to raise a glass to the astounding assurance that now life begins, and the everlasting knowing that, above all, love wins.” — Meghan
