Danny Lawson / PA Wire  Since the beginning of their romance in July 2016, Harry and Meghan had a long-distance relationship. As a result, they apparently had to learn how to stay connected while Meghan was working on Suits in Toronto and Harry was in London or traveling.
So how do you manage to keep your connection strong even when you are miles and miles away?
A source tells E! News that both Harry and Meghan are "great texters" and that Harry loves to use an emoji or a gif. Also FaceTime "every day when they are separated" and it is said that "they played a very important role in their relationship".
On November 27, it was announced that Harry and Meghan are engaged. A day later, it was revealed that the couple will marry in May 2018 in the Chapel of St. George at Windsor Castle.
A connoisseur told E! News that Harry had already asked his brother Prince William to be his godfather and Prince George and Princess Charlotte will have roles at the wedding.
