It has been nearly one year since Meghan Markle became part of the British royal family. And now, as you’re no doubt aware, the Duchess of Sussex is preparing to welcome her first child with husband Prince Harry. So when it came to Meghan’s final official engagement before reportedly going on maternity leave, the duchess treated the public to one last glimpse of her large baby bump.
This is just the latest chapter in Harry and Meghan’s love story, of course. The couple actually started dating in 2016 after a shared acquaintance got them together for a blind date. The royals were then able to keep their romance under wraps for half a year before the press finally caught wind of their relationship. And so in November 2017 the couple announced that Meghan had retired from acting and moved to the United Kingdom – and that they had gotten engaged.
Then, on May 19, 2018, Harry and Meghan tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. It was on that same day that the Queen actually bestowed the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex upon them too. And right after the royal wedding, Meghan began performing duties on behalf of the monarchy.
