Following Monday鈥檚 happy news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle鈥檚 engagement, the pair sat down with the BBC for their first joint interview. Along with cute tidbits about the couple鈥檚 first (blind!) date and romantic proposal, we also learned an important detail about how Harry鈥檚 side of the family embraced Markle.

鈥淚t鈥檚 incredible, I think, you know, to be able to meet her through his lens,鈥 Markle said of initially being introduced to Queen Elizabeth II. 鈥淣ot just with his honor and respect for her as the monarch, but the love that he has for her as his grandmother. 鈥 She鈥檚 an incredible woman.鈥

Harry then added, 鈥淎nd the corgis took to you straight away.鈥 Markle agreed, as Harry continued, 鈥淚鈥檝e spent the last 33 years being barked at 鈥 this one walks in, absolutely nothing.鈥

Markle admitted that the corgis sweetly laid on her feet while they had tea, as Harry joked, 鈥淛ust wagging tails 鈥 and I was just like, argh.鈥

Markle is an avid dog lover and has two rescues of her own 鈥 a lab/shepherd named Bogart and a beagle named Guy. She noted that her 鈥渓ittle guy鈥 has been with her in the UK for a while; she鈥檚 currently finalizing plans for the other pup to make the move while he currently stayed with some close friends. Whether the corgis take to their new canine family as well as they took to Markle remains to be seen.
