Now, this whirlwind love story began back in 2016.

When Suits actress Meghan Markle started dating Prince Harry, her career as an actress seemed to be instantly swapped for a life fulfilling royal duties.

They married in May 2018...

Making Meghan an official part of the royal family.

The couple announced their pregnancy shortly after the wedding...

And Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born in May of 2019.

However, though the family seemed to radiate with happiness...

This was 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.

And, even though Meghan bravely put a smile on her face throughout it all...

There was absolutely no doubt that she was struggling.

This is what lead to the couple to make the bold decision to step down from royal duties in January 2020.

In a joint statement via Instagram, Harry and Meghan said that they wanted "a normal upbringing for their child" and they felt 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 came under strain following his departure, reports at the time claimed.

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 and rumors began to surface that they had signed a multi-million dollar Netflix deal...

Leaving fans of the royal family completely baffled.

And not only that...

But their joint-biography, Finding Freedom, was a huge success in many parts of the world - especially here in the United States.

The pair seem to be living the lives they've always wanted in L.A...

And to make things even more exciting, they announced on Valentine's Day that they're expecting their second child together with this photoshoot.

But the happiness among fans wasn't to last...

Getty

As last month, it was announced that Harry and Meghan will not be returning - officially - as working members of the royal family.

A statement from Buckingham Palace said the royals were "saddened by their decision" but that Harry and Meghan "remain much-loved members of the family."

"Following conversations with The Duke, The Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service," the statement read.

"The honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by The Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of The Royal Family."

Predictably, the announcement triggered a media storm...

And among all of the love and support came the negativity and unbelievable surges of criticism.

In the weeks following their dramatic departure, the couple remained relatively under the radar...

Until Harry took part in a widely televised interview with friend and host, James Corden, last week.

The royal appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden in his first public interview since stepping down to chat about his new life in L.A.

He was interviewed by Corden on an open-top tour bus - all while drinking tea, of course - as he opened up about what life has been like for him, Meghan, and Archie in the last year.

Here, Harry also revealed - for the first time - the reason he and Meghan stepped away from the royal family.

When asked, "what made you walk away from the royal family?", Harry politely corrected him by saying, "I didn't walk away."

"It was stepping back rather than stepping down. It was a really difficult environment that I think a lot of people saw... we all know what the British press can be like! And it was destroying my mental health, I was like 'this is toxic!'"

"I did what any husband and father would do."

"I needed to get my family out of there!" he then said.

"But we never walked away. And as far as I'm concerned whatever decisions are made on that side, I will never walk away. I will always be contributing but my life is public service, so wherever I am in the world it's going to be the same thing."

"My life is always going to be about public service and Meghan signed up for that."

"The 2 of us enjoy doing that and trying to bring compassion and try to make people happy, and try to change the world in any small way we can," he explained.

But there's one more interview that everyone is talking about...

And that's Harry and Meghan's joint interview with Oprah on March 7th.

Obviously, the world descended into a frenzy when it was announced that the couple had sat down for a lengthy 2-hour-long chat with the celebrated host.

A source close to the couple added that Meghan hoped this interview would "give her her voice back."

It's set to be an explosive episode...

And now, a new teaser trailer has shown just how intense their chat was.

The thirty-second clip shows Meghan, dressed in an elegant black dress and cradling her bump.

And fans have also spotted she's wearing Princess Diana's bracelet, too.

The reason?

YouTube

Well, it's reportedly because Harry and Meghan wanted to feel as though Diana was with them in the interview.

Harry also draws some parallels between his story and his mother's.

YouTube

While talking presumably about why they stepped away from the royal family, he could be heard alluding to his mother, Princess Diana, saying:

"My biggest concern was history repeating itself."

He can then be heard saying:

YouTube

"You know, for me, I'm just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you, with my wife by my side because I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for her [Diana], going through this process by herself, all those years ago because it has been unbelievably tough for the 2 of us, but at least we have each other."

You can watch the full trailer below.

The segment will air on CBS this Sunday, March 7th.
