When 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.

Things were far from the case behind the scenes as Meghan was relentlessly attacked by the British press and public.

Anything she did or said...

The 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...

But 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.

Her 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.

The 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...

Meghan 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...

Leaving 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.

They 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.

As 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.

The 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.

The 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...

As now, just months down the line, the book can be purchased for as little as $1.36.

In more recent news, it's been confirmed that Harry and Meghan are expecting their second child.

A spokesperson for the royals confirmed the news over Valentine's weekend.

But now Meg has hit headlines again this week.

After her royal hairstylist, George Northwood, opened up about what it was like to work for her...

During her time as a senior member of the royal family, Meghan Markle never had one hair out of place...

The iconic messy bun, a sleek ponytail, and of course those loose "Cali girl" waves are just some of the styles that stole the show.

Following their departure from royal life and the UK...

Northwood took to Instagram to reveal he'd been working with the couple behind the scenes for the last few years - including on their royal tours.

The hairstylist, said it was a "lot of fun" to work with Meghan...

He wrote on social media: "It has been an enormous privilege and a lot of fun working with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex over the past two years.

"I have enjoyed every minute collaborating with this amazing couple who not only champion small businesses but have taught me so much about diversity, equality, and the importance of good mental health."

The hairstylist then spoke to British Vogue about what it was really like to work with Meghan...

He explained how he was nervous to meet her, but that they "hit it off straight away."

"I think I met her in February, around Valentine's Day 2018," he said. "She was just like my California girl clients."

"We hit it off – we immediately spoke the same language."

The pair became very close over the years...

"We went on tour for three weeks to Australia, New Zealand and Tonga etc, and a lot of the time it was just me and her – you have back-to-back engagements, a lot of different looks and a full-on schedule, so you become very close in that period."

"As a hairdresser, you just have a more intimate role, getting someone ready. We made Cali girl hair a bit more formal and had a real laugh."

He added that Meghan always wanted to look "approachable."

"The way she approaches things is how an everyday woman would approach things – she has a real sense of style and she wanted to look approachable, even though she was a princess," he told Vogue.

"She was a very modern princess, the sort of princess we can relate to and aspire to, and the hair just fell into that."
