The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are celebrating their second wedding anniversary, and from the very beginning of the relationship until today, they have been embellishing the covers of all the world’s tabloids. There are a couple of reasons why this is so. A lot has changed since Meghan and Harry said “I do” to each other on May 19 at Windsor Castle in front of their families, but also the whole world.
In just two years of marriage, the couple has shaken the foundations of the royal family with their moves, and due to numerous situations, they have become hated among part of the British public. We bring you all the details of how the whole parade started.
They are officially in a relationship
Harry revealed in November 2016 that American actress Meghan Markle was his girlfriend. Not everyone was happy with his choice, and many compared him to King Edward, who had abdicated almost a hundred years earlier because of the same situation. However, a year later, the Queen’s younger grandson announced that he would stand in front of the altar with the girl. The royal family was never more followed.
A wedding without the whole family
Things became clear after a few months. Meghan is at war with her father, who wasn’t even at the wedding, and the more details came out in the media, the more uncomfortable it was to watch and listen. The couple got married on May 19, 2018, and Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, is the only member of her family to attend the big event.
The rest of the American side was mostly carefully selected actors and people from the world of showbiz. Problems for Meghan and Harry were just emerging.
The Queen’s sweetheart
Unlike the other brides of the royal family, it seemed as if Queen Elizabeth quickly embraced Meghan. Very soon, the duchess began to associate privately with the Queen, and they also performed several independent royal duties. Everything seemed perfect, and Meghan had nothing against showing up in public in elegant editions.
They are expecting!
In October of the same year, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child, while they were on a business trip to Australia and New Zealand. Seventh in line for the crown at the time and eighth grandchild of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, little Archie was born in May last year. When his name was announced, everyone was struck by his last name, Mountbatten-Windsor.
The couple never explained where the name for the boy came from, nor why they don’t have the title. The surname Mountbatten was added to him in honor of Harry’s grandfather, Prince Philip.
Shock and disbelief – they leave the royal family
Meghan and Harry announced earlier this year that they were stepping down from all royal duties. The media eagerly accepted the event under the name Megxit, and all the details took place under the watchful eye of the public. Until we found out why they decided to do so, we discovered numerous details about the life of the famous couple.
They quarreled and “fought” with the Queen and the prince’s whole family to finally come to their own, and by the last day of March, they had done all their duties and set out for a whole new world.
The American Dream
The New World is actually Meghan’s old port of Los Angeles. The couple lived in Canada for a while, after which they moved into the villa of Hollywood tycoon Tyler Perry in an elite neighborhood. As they say, they enjoy the new freedom, and now they have the opportunity to raise their son in completely different conditions than planned.
Allegedly, Harry has a problem because he hasn’t made too many friends yet so he’s whining about his old life, but by all accounts, the couple got what they wanted. From Great Britain to the USA, they made their “American dream” come true, and today they are one of the most famous couples in the world. Not always for good, but for the first two years of marriage, they hold up well.
