The year 2018 was very, very exciting for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. In May, of course, they married in a wedding ceremony watched by millions. Then came a period of adjustment to their lives as newlyweds, with the world observing Meghan, the new royal, settling down into her role. And after that, just as the pair kicked off a tour, there came another thrilling announcement from the palace.
Back before all of this, however, royal family fans had simply delighted in the romance between Harry and Meghan. He’d been one of the most eligible bachelors in the world, after all, and she is a beautiful American with a background in activism and acting. So when the pair finally announced their engagement in November 2017, many were overjoyed to see the celebratory photos taken in the gardens of Kensington Palace.
The wedding took place in May 2018 and was the social event of the year. Several A-list celebrities were among the guests, including Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra and more. And during the ceremony, Meghan walked down the aisle on the arm of Prince Charles, as her own father couldn’t attend due to a heart operation.
