The besotted royal reportedly wanted to “test her love for him” by spending a night in the Norwegian wilderness, with little more than wild predators for company.
According to the Daily Star Sunday, the trip to the remote mining town of Barentsburg was an indication that the 35-year-old actress could be the one for Harry.
An unnamed source told the paper: "Harry always said that he’d know if a girl was the one if he could take her to the middle of nowhere and she survived.
“Harry’s always on this quest for inner peace and it’s only in these silent spots he seems to find that.
“Allowing Meghan into that world was a huge love test.”
