They’ve moved to a new home, travelled around the world and gave birth to a baby boy. Express.co.uk looks back at the couple’s best moments in pictures.
September 2017: First official public appearance
Meghan and Harry made their first public appearance together at the Prince’s Invictus Games in 2017.
The couple were pictured next to each other at the wheelchair tennis games.
They looked so in love and broke royal protocol by kissing and holding hands in public, something which is frowned upon usually.
Shortly before in an interview with Vanity Fair, Meghan said “We’re a couple. We’re in love.
“I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people understand is that this is our time.”
This picture marks the beginning of an iconic royal love story.

The statement read “His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms Meghan Markle.
“His Royal Highness and Ms Markle became engaged in London earlier this months.

October 2018 – May 2019: Royal baby
