It's hard to believe that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been married for almost a year. It was clear from the beginning that, despite all the hurdles they had to take, they were truly in love.
Now that they have their first child and are ready to celebrate their one-year anniversary (May 19), we can not help but think about everything they've gone through together. From the beginning, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had our attention. It was just the way they looked at each other that drove us out.
Before they got married, they had a lot of media attention. Most of it was unflattering and many people thought the relationship would end. Few really believed that they would be married, and yet here we are writing about their first year. Here's why Meghan and Harry's first year of marriage went better than it seemed.
Meghan's family drama did not ruin the wedding.
It is true that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a fairytale wedding, but Markle and the Royals also had a lot of drama. The biggest problem in the run up to the wedding was Meghan's family, especially her father.
Not too long after the official announcement of the engagement, rumors began about her father, Thomas Markle. It all started when tabloids started to publish stories about Meghan and her family. It soon turned out that her father had signed a contract with paparazzi to get "honest" photos and insider information about the Royals and the upcoming wedding.
This did not go well with Meghan or the royal family. After many floats in the media, Meghan stopped talking to her dad at all. He was not at the wedding and Prince Charles, Harry's father, led Meghan to the altar. In the end, the wedding was still beautiful, Meghan officially joined the royal family, and there was not a day when Meghan and Harry did not look happy with each other.
The Duke and Duchess Are Renovating Their New Homes
Every couple will tell you that renovating a home can be an enormous burden on a relationship. Not only because of the confusion and disorder during the construction works, but also because of the difficult choice. In that case, things are probably very different. For starters, they had a lot of help with the renovations. You also do not have to worry much about money. And although many couples have to deal with conflicting styles, they probably do not have too many arguments in this area. They both want a private, beautiful home to start a family.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Beneficial in Their First Year of Marriage
Like all members of the royal family, Meghan was expected to fulfill her duties. Her job is to represent Queen Elizabeth and her new country. Since she married her prince, she has traveled with Harry, speaking at engagements, and volunteering. That's because she's no stranger to giving back and working as a volunteer. Before she met her husband, she spent her free time giving something back to her community. Being a strong female role model is nothing new to the Duchess of Sussex.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Expand Their Family
When an official announcement came out in October 2018 that Duke and Duchess would be expecting their first child. The world turned to the bridal couple. They had almost exploded in all media channels, on magazine front pages and in social media.
The young couple had very little privacy from the day of their engagement on which it celebrated its one-year anniversary. Meghan is not what the UK is used to: she is a mixed race, American and a former actress. This is probably why their relationship, pregnancy and now child get press worldwide. Everything about the royal couple seems different and we can not wait to see what's next. We have no doubt that Meghan and Harry will continue to fix everything.
