Now, the whirlwind love story began back in 2016.
via: GettyWhen Meghan Markle started dating Prince Harry, her career as an actress seemed to be instantly swapped for a life fulfilling royal duties.
It was rather unexpected...
But Harry seemed to be besotted with his new love interest and it didn't take him long to cement her as his serious girlfriend... including taking her to meet Queen Elizabeth just a few months in!
After a year of dating, Harry and Meghan announced their engagement...
Much to the delight of their fan-base worldwide!
They married in May 2018...
Which made Meghan an official part of the royal family.
It was the most magical of days...And Meghan was christened with her official title, the Duchess of Sussex.
The couple announced their pregnancy shortly after the wedding...
And Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born in May of 2019.
Even though the little family seemed to radiate with happiness...
via: GettyThings were far from the case behind the scenes as Meghan was relentlessly attacked by the British press and public.
Anything she did or said...
via: GettyThe British media had something to say about it. Whether she was being branded as a diva, a control-freak, a "monarchy ruiner," and even a bad mother, Meghan received it all.
Even though Meghan bravely put a smile on her face throughout it all...
There's absolutely no doubt that she was struggling.
Meghan and Harry made the bold decision to step down from royal duties a year ago in January 2020.
In a joint statement, the couple said that they wanted "a normal upbringing for their child" and they feel that spending their time between the U.K. and America would be much more appropriate for their family environment.
This came as a huge shock worldwide...
via: GettyBut nobody was more shocked than those in the royal family.
Apparently, the Queen wasn't notified of Harry and Meghan's plans to step down from the family until after their announcement on social media.
via: GettyHer Majesty published a statement shortly afterward, which read: "Discussions with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through."
Harry's relationship with his brother William also reportedly came under strain following his departure.
via: GettyThe future King of England was reported to have distanced himself from Harry and Meghan, with claims surfacing that the pair didn't speak for months.
Even though the family is now residing in Los Angeles...
via: GettyMeghan and Harry are still receiving a lot of heat from the British press for "breaking up the royal family."
The pair also revealed that they will be venturing into the world of TV...
via: GettyLeaving fans of the royal family completely baffled.
Reports surfaced that Harry and Meghan have signed a $143 million deal with Netflix for a reality series.
via: GettyThey have been reported to want to "work behind the cameras" with Netflix so people can see "the real Meghan." A source explained how the vision of the show will be tasteful: "They want to give people a glimpse into their lives. They may have had all these lofty ideas about producing epics highlighting environmental causes and the poverty gap, but Netflix obviously wants their pound of flesh."
If it happens, it will hopefully have more longevity than their other explorations.
via: GettyAs their biography, Finding Freedom, is now being sold with a substantial price decrease just 5 months after being released.
The book, which was released in August last year, was originally a huge success.
via: GettyThe biography was written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, and although the couple claimed they did not contribute to the book, it contained a lot of intimate knowledge.
It offers a glimpse into the couple's life as senior royals, while discussing their shocking exit.
via: GettyThe Daily Mail reports that one of the authors, Omid Scobie, said that while they did not interview the couple, many friends gave them insights - providing "a lens to the couple through their friends and their circle of aides."
But sadly, the success didn't last long...
via: GettyAs now, just months down the line, the book can be purchased for as little as $1.36.
And now, it's been confirmed that Harry and Meghan are expecting their second child.
A spokesperson for the royals confirmed the news over the weekend, but people aren't too happy with the couple...

I think that was the moment I moved from disliking her to actively hating her— Pamm Durrell Whittaker 🇦🇺💗🇺🇸 🐈🐕🦺 Mumma (@PammWhittaker) June 29, 2020
Of course we will never know 100%. However, Meghan does have a habit of making posts and announcements on days where other BRF member should be in the spotlight.— Dolly Dot (@Mella_1988) June 29, 2020
But now, one body language expert has offered insight into what the photo announcement really means ...
Judi James has drawn attention to Harry's "almost ecstatic state."
"She is his sole focus and the very gentle-looking cupping of her head suggests a fierce desire to protect her."
Harry's smile is described as "besotted."
"It shows how keen he is to produce the message of an idyllic state in terms of happiness and lifestyle."
"Meghan gazes up into his face and their mirrored 'pinging' smiles suggest mutual joy."
"With Harry's bare feet turned to camera and their very casual clothing the couple seem to want to signal a sense of simplicity in both emotions and lifestyle."
"Shot in their favourite monochrome though, this looks for all the world like a high-end advert or Vogue shoot, with it's 'locked and lost in love' pose and the idyllic country setting."
Harry and Meghan really do take the best photos. This photo is breathtaking. pic.twitter.com/gefDAVJGob— Katrina 🕊️🌸🛡️ (@dazzlegal) February 15, 2021
