It's been a couple of days since the new Harry & Meghan docuseries began airing on Netflix. Since the six-part docuseries dropped on the streaming platform, viewers have now discovered many surprising revelations about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Fans were delighted to know about the extremely relatable story of how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first met.

Also, it was revealed that Prince Harry had a secret Instagram account with a meaningful name, which he apparently used to spy on Meghan. Here are the details.

How Did Prince Harry And Meghan Meet?

In the first episode of the highly-anticipated docu-series, the Duke of Sussex spoke candidly about how he and Meghan's love story began. According to Prince Harry, they first met over Instagram. Further explaining how it happened, Prince Harry said he was scrolling through his feed when he saw Meghan in a video with their mutual friend.

According to the Duke, the former actress was sporting what looked like a Snapchat dog filter. Interested, Prince Harry reached out to the mutual friend who wasted no time in letting Meghan know she had an admirer.

Meghan Used Prince Harry's Instagram Account To Get To Know Him

After the mutual friend reached out to Meghan, the former actress decided that using Instagram was the best way to judge the prince rather than reading stories about him on the internet. So, she asked the mutual friend if she could see Prince Harry's feed. According to Meghan per Marca:

"You're like, 'let me see what they're about in their feed,' not what someone else says about them but what they are putting out about themselves. That to me was the best barometer."

The Content Of Prince Harry's Instagram Feed

Prince Harry's secret Instagram account contained never-before-seen photos mainly featuring animals in the wild, sunsets, and conservation work from his time in Botswana, Africa. One of the pictures showed the Duke of Sussex doing a handstand on the beach, and another showed him carrying an injured rhino.

Meghan seemed not to be disappointed about the image Harry presented of himself as she described the photographs as beautiful. From then, it only got better for the duo, who eventually started dating in 2018 and tied the knot two years later.

The Name Of Prince Harry's Secret Account

According to Finding Freedom biographers, the name choice of the Instagram account "SpikeyMau5" was a mix of his nickname and a tribute to one of his favorite music artists, deadmau5. The Spikey in the account name was allegedly from a nickname "Spike Wells" given to him by Scotland Yard officials. Meanwhile, the Instagram account is nowhere to be found, as it has since been disabled.
