He continued, "So then we were really by ourselves, which I think was crucial to me to make sure we had a chance to get to know each other."
Harry also included Botswana in Meghan's engagement ring. The main stone in Meghan's ring is sourced from Botswana, while the diamonds surrounding it are from the jewelry collection of Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana.
Harry shared last year that Botswana will always have sentimental value to him.
"I first came in 1997, straight after my mum died," he said. "My dad told my brother and me we were going to Africa to get away from it all."
"This is where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world," Harry continued. "I have this intense sense of complete relaxation and normality here."
Harry and Meghan have kept a private schedule since making their first post-wedding appearance at a Buckingham Palace garden party for Prince Charles on May 22.
The duke and duchess were married on May 19 at St. George's Chapel in front of around 600 guests and a worldwide television audience of millions.
The couple's next public appearance is expected to be for Queen Elizabeth's official birthday celebration, Trooping the Colour, on June 9.
The day will be a milestone for Meghan: Her first appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as a member of Britain's royal family.
Harry and Meghan's first major tour as husband and wife will be in October as part of Harry’s new role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.
They are expected to travel to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
In Australia, Meghan and Harry will visit Sydney for the 2018 Invictus Games, the Paralympic-style sporting event Harry founded for service men and women.
