Whether it be through his mischievous antics or selfless charitable efforts.

But, in recent years, it has been his personal life that has been in our interests.

Headlines were made all over the world when Harry announced his romance with the Suits actress, Meghan Markle.

It all started with a blind date...

The couple met back in 2016 when they were set up by a mutual friend who thought the two would hit it off.

And their friend's hunch was apparently right...

Because the pair hit it off, and they immediately arranged to see each other again, eventually going on to have 2 more dates in London.

And, in 2017, after a couple of months of privacy...

The pair officially went public with their relationship.

Meghan was instantly catapulted into the royal spotlight.

Though she was already pretty well known for her role as Rachel Zane in Suits, the California-born actress was thrown into levels of fame that she had never experienced before.

The world quickly became Harry and Meghan obsessed.

And people were delighted to hear the news of their engagement later that year.

And, not ones to waste any time...

Archie Mountbatten-Windsor was welcomed into the world.

Harry, Meghan, and baby Archie make for the cutest little family.

But things haven't been as rosy and smooth-sailing as they have been appearing.

Meghan hasn't had the easiest time during her transition into the royal family...

Joining the British royal family was never going to be easy, given that a person has to give up their entire life in order to be a part of the monarchy. But Meghan's experience has been especially difficult.

Many dedicated royalists weren't happy to see an American woman of colour in the monarchy...

And many attacked the Duchess, slamming her as "fake," with some going as far as accusing her of breaking up the royal family entirely.

She has also been relentlessly attacked by the press...

To the point where Kensington Palace was forced to issue a statement, pleading for the press and the public alike to take a step back when it comes to their scathing reporting and bombardment of Meghan.

But, this year, the couple have seemingly had enough of the harassment and the criticism...

Because they announced that they would be officially stepping down as senior members of the royal family.

They made the announcement on their joint Instagram page, Sussex Royal.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen," the post read.

The couple plan on providing a more "normal" upbringing for Archie...

And they announced that they will be splitting their time between the U.K and North America. “This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity," they wrote.

This was huge news...

And, obviously, it ruffled a couple of feathers in Buckingham Palace.

But what many people have failed to take into consideration...

Is how hard this whole experience must have been for Meghan - a new mother.

Despite receiving hate from some social media users, the majority just want what's best for the couple.

That includes baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor - You couldn't make up a more royal-sounding name if you tried.

Harry and Meghan are currently isolating in LA - a place in which they plan on remaining for the foreseeable future.

Which means they're far away from many of their close family members.

But now fans have realized something surprising.

You'd think with all we know about Harry, his name would be pretty high on the list!

But apparently, that's not the case.

As many are just discovering the real name on Harry's birth certificate.

And it's not just Harry.
