Meghan Markle and Prince Harry first broke the news they were dating in 2016. Since then, it’s been nothing short of a whirlwind for them and the Royal Family – from their highly publicised wedding to their exit from royal life to the birth of their son Archie – Express.co.uk takes a look at a timeline of the couples’ life in the spotlight so far.
The pair were reportedly introduced by mutual friends in July 2016 – but it is unclear whether they met in the USA or here in the UK, and the couple went public with their relationship in 2017.
They made their first public outing together at an official event in March 2017, where they were pictured at a polo match in Ascot.
In September 2017, Meghan took part in an interview in Vanity Fair, a move seen as highly unusual for someone becoming involved in the Royal Family.
She said: “We’re a couple. We’re in love.
“I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time.
“This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours.
“But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”
Their first official appearance was made at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto in September 2017.
The love story went according to plan, and they announced their engagement in November 2017.
The pair married in May…
