Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly have strict rules that they are supposed to follow during their official engagements. But in October 2018, the couple went on their first overseas royal tour to Australia. And when they met a boy who has Down syndrome, they decided to bend them in a way that has warmed people’s hearts.

Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, started dating in June 2016 after going on a blind date organized by a friend they have in common. And four months later, their relationship became public knowledge. At that time, moreover, the Duchess of Sussex was starring on the legal drama Suits as Rachel Zane.

Harry and Meghan’s relationship then blossomed quickly. And after the couple announced that they were engaged in November 2017, Meghan also confirmed that she was retiring from acting. Then just five months later, on May 19, 2018, the pair exchanged vows at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
