Bomb disposal expert Matt Weston, who served in Afghanistan, told reporters that when he asked where Meghan was, the prince quipped that he couldn’t bring his girlfriend along because there was nowhere he could hide her.

‘I took the mickey and asked where his missus was and he said she wasn’t here,’ he told reporters, according to Hello! Magazine.

‘I asked if she would come next time because she’s awesome, and he said he couldn’t hide her anywhere, but I said you wouldn’t have to hide her.’

The couple has been dating for just over a year, and have treated the public to a few glimpses of (the most adorable) PDA since announcing their relationship.

‘I would love to meet her – I think she’s very cool,’ Matt added. ‘[Harry’s] a very lucky man and she’s brilliant.’

Think we all agree that Meghan and Harry seem perfect for each other.
