Chivalry isn't dead — at least, when you're married to a literal prince. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are currently in Austin, Texas ahead of her talk at the Opening Day Keynote Panel for SXSW, but before then, the married couple went out to dinner on March 8 at a spot linked to their first date.

According to People, the pair grabbed dinner at Soho House Austin and booked a corner table at the private members' club. "They were happy and in great spirits," a source told the outlet. "Harry was very animated throughout the dinner. They were super low-key and seemed happy to be around the upbeat vibes at the lively venue."

Soho House is a special spot for Meghan and Harry — the pair had their very first date at Soho House London, which he spoke about in his memoir, Spare.

"Red-cheeked, puffing, sweaty, half an hour late, I ran into the restaurant, into the quiet room, and found her sitting at a small area on a low velvet sofa in front of a low coffee table," Harry recalled in the book.

"She was wearing a black sweater, jeans, heels. I knew nothing about clothes, but I knew she was chic. Then again, she could make anything look chic," he continued. "I'd seen so many photos of her from fashion shoots and TV sets, all glam and glossy, but here she was, in the flesh, no frills, no filter… and even more beautiful. Heart-attack beautiful. I was trying to process this, struggling to understand what was happening to my circulatory and nervous systems, and as a result, my brain couldn't handle any more data. Conversation, pleasantries, the Queen's English, all became a challenge."

Following their date night, the pair had a FaceTime call and met again at the same Soho House location the next day. And the rest, as they say, is history.
