And, more recently, there's been a relentless obsession over her family life.
via: GettyEver since the birth of her first child, Archie Harrison, people have been speculating as to whether Meghan and Harry will be having any more children any time soon... And now, we may just have an answer. But first, let's start from the beginning.
It's been a whirlwind couple of years.Back in 2016, the world was incredibly shocked, yet even more excited to find out that the California-born actress was dating Prince Harry.
After being set up by a mutual friend...The pair began secretly dating and, fast-forward a year and a half, they were announcing their engagement to the world.
They tied the knot in May 2018...Making Meghan an official, and the first mixed-race member of the British monarchy.
Meghan radiated with happiness on her big day...But, in reality, things hadn't been so easy for the newly-appointed Duchess of Sussex.
Meghan's transition into the royal family hasn't been an easy one...
via: ShutterstockJoining the British royal family was never going to be an easy transition, given that a person has to give up their entire life in order to be a part of the monarchy. But Meghan’s experience had been especially difficult.
Since news of her and Harry's relationship broke...
Kensington Palace has issued a statement this morning about the harassment currently being experienced by Meghan Ma… https://t.co/6KgnuDlXOk— The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge)1478599888.0
And, ever since the birth of Archie...The criticism and scrutiny have only intensified further.
This pressure evidently became too much for the couple...Because, a mere week into the new year, they made the shock announcement that, as a family, they will officially be stepping down as senior members of the royal family.
They made the announcement on their joint Instagram account, Sussex Royal.
The couple plan on providing a "normal" childhood for Archie...

It was huge news.
via: ShutterstockIt isn't every day that someone decides to just get up and leave the royal family and, obviously, a few feathers were ruffled.
But, since the news broke, Meghan's critics have only intensified.
via: Getty ImagesShe became an even bigger target for the British press, with Piers Morgan branding her a "ruthless social climber' who has spent her life "using people, moving on and ditching them," amongst other things.
And her abilities as a mother have been relentlessly picked apart.
Meghan has been frequently "mom-shamed" since the birth of Archie.
via: Getty ImagesLast year she came under fire for the way she held baby Archie, with some saying that she could "hurt" him. Attacking a new mom in this way is the lowest of the low.
Although, are we really surprised?
via: Getty ImagesMeghan can't seem to catch a break, with her every move being criticized by at least one publication. So, of course, it isn't exactly shocking that she's been slammed for the way she parents Archie too.
But Meghan has taken it all in her stride.
via: GettyThe young woman has continuously held her head high bt throwing her energy into the things she loves the most - Her husband, her son, and her charitable work.
Along with Harry and Archie, Meghan has moved back to LA.
via: GettyShe is reportedly happy to be back in her home country where she is able to bring up her son in peace and "away from the British press."
The small family are reportedly hiding out in a secluded compound in LA...

And this new lease of life has obviously made Meghan evaluate the prospect of more children...
via: GettyBecause, according to a source close to Meghan, she is thinking of potentially having more children soon.
Her hints came when talking about Archie with a friend.
via: GettyAnd this so-called "friend", who has chosen to remain anonymous, reported to the Daily Mail that Meghan explained how Archie is a "happy baby" who is "fascinated with his mini-instruments and likes banging on whatever he can. He also likes it when daddy teases him and plays the harmonica. He thinks it's funny."
But she reportedly wants a "pint-sized buddy" for baby Archie.
via: GettyThe source continued: "She joked that he needs a pint-size little buddy other than the dogs. Meghan lit up when she spoke about Archie. She said he's a bundle of energy and prefers playing over sleeping."
But Harry may not be too keen.
via: GettyDuring a recent video call with the charity WellChild, Harry joked that one kid "is enough."
Only time will tell...
via: GettyAnd I'm sure the couple will find happiness regardless of how many children they have... Oh, and maybe Meghan needs to reevaluate her friendship group.
