Today, it's a known fact that the 'common friend' who introduced both is Ralph Lauren's PR director Violet von Westenholz. The Von Westenholz are family friends of the British Royalty and as per a source who revealed it to E!, Prince Harry had confided in Baron von Westenholz that he needs a fix for his dating life. The source had revealed, "He can hardly go on Tinder or a dating app like normal people, but to meet someone that you actually connect with, that was proving to be almost impossible."

Violet had become friends with Meghan because of her work with Ralph Lauren. The source further added to E!, "And so when Harry told Violet he was having trouble finding someone, Violet said she might just have the perfect girl for him.”

On the BBC interview, which was the couple's first interaction with the press after their engagement, Meghan did reveal what it was on the first date. “It was definitely a set-up. It was a blind date. I didn’t know much about him and so the only thing I had asked her when she said she wanted to set us up was, I had one question, I said ‘Was he nice?’ Harry in the same interview mentioned that he hadn't watched Meghan on The Suits and didn't know much about her.
