What This Media Spy Had To Say About Meghan And Harry's Double Date

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently in New York City to support issues surrounding some of the most poignant topics in the world today such as the COVID-19 pandemic. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been busy making their rounds in The Big Apple as they've already visited the 9/11 museum and memorial and more (via People Magazine). 

They also met with UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield. "Wonderful meeting with Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Important discussion of COVID, racial justice, and raising mental health awareness," Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield tweeted after her meeting with the pair (via Marie Claire).

While Meghan and Harry are seemingly in New York to support causes that they hold dear, they are also taking some time for themselves. The outing marks the first public appearance for the pair since the birth of their daughter, Lilibet Diana, in June. The duo left their two children at home in California as they traveled east, and it appears they are using the time without the kids to reconnect. Page Six reports that Meghan and Harry were looking forward to a "romantic fall" trip to NYC, and this week, they were spotted having some fun while on a double date with friends.

Meghan reportedly dominated the conversation during the outing

Page Six reports that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were spotted out on a double date in New York City with who appeared to be Meghan's friend Misha Nonoo and her husband, Mikey Hess. The two couples dined at Bemelmans Bar inside the Carlyle Hotel, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly staying during their trip to The Big Apple. An eyewitness told the outlet that the couple had two security guards with them, who sat at a different table and watched the other guests in case they tried to snap a photo of the royals. "If people tried to take a picture, they would approach them and say, 'Please don't,'" the source said.

The onlooker also admitted that Meghan dominated the conversation during the double date and did "most of the talking," adding that Harry offered "very few responses" during the dinner. "She was excited about something. She talked with her hands a lot." The source also shared that Harry looked a bit uninterested in the conversation at times. "Harry got bored and started looking at his phone. Then, he got back in the conversation, and then, he lost it again and went back to his phone," the spy admitted.

Although the couple is in NYC for work, it appears Harry and Meghan got to squeeze in a bit of fun before heading to an appearance at the Global Citizen Live event in Central Park on Saturday.
