Smitten Prince Harry fell head over heels for wife Meghan Markle after she went to the toilet in the woods, a new book has claimed.
Finding Freedom hits the shelves today after rocking the royal family with a string of claims about the couple's exit as senior royals.
But it has also shed light on how the loved-up pair fell for each other before their rapid romance led to marriage in 2018.
Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claim the prince was "delightfully surprised" after Meghan thought nothing of going to the toilet in the woods on a luxury camping break in Botswana.
This was six weeks after their first date in July 2016 in London.
The book reads: "While camping she cleaned her face with baby wipes and happily wandered into the woodlands if she needed a bathroom break."
During the trip they stayed at a £1,500-a-night tent in Meno A Kwena.
Meghan is said to have started her day with fruit and yoghurt, and urged Harry to adopt a healthier lifestyle by introducing him to yoga and meditation.
It is also claimed Harry was impressed Meghan only bought one backpack for the whole trip, including sunscreen for Harry.

It is claimed Meghan told a pal she was "just completely spellbound" and "I've never felt that safe…close to someone in such a short amount of time".
On their first date, Harry is said to have described Meghan as "the most beautiful woman I've seen in my life".
The book reads: "Still their chemistry had been electric throughout the meal as they both flirted. A touch of an arm here, direct eye contact there."
Meghan Markle helped Prince Harry find 'wokeness', Finding Freedom author claims
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex insist they were not interviewed for the book.
But its authors claim it was written in co-operation with people close to the couple.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess said: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom.
"This book is based on the authors' own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting."
