Meghan Markle and Prince Harry share new photo on wedding anniversary

It’s been two years to the day since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement. The couple shared a new, unseen photo to mark the day and we look at some of the talking points of their journey as a couple so far  


To mark the occasion, the royals shared an Instagram post — plus a wedding snap fans haven’t seen before.

“On this day, two years ago: 27th of November 2017, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the news of their engagement, later becoming Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! They have since celebrated their wedding anniversary and welcomed their son, Archie, into the world,” the caption read.

The royals shared three photos. The first picture was taken during their engagement photocall in Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden on November 27, 2017.

The second is a never-before-seen wedding photo taken after they tied the knot at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.

The third was taken when Meghan and Harry first introduced baby Archie Mountbatten-Windsor to the world in Windsor Castle.

Milestones for the couple for sure, and they’ve had many talking points over the past 24 months.

The wedding was, naturally, the big one (or, at least, the first of them!). Watched by millions around the world, every detail was noticed, talked about, reported on for days following the ceremony. From the Givenchy dress to the Martin Luther King Jr quotes to Harry’s fumble with the veil and the kiss on the steps – onlookers revelled in the delight of the new couple.

Birth of baby Archie

They might have kept his christening private, but when they were ready, the Duke and Duchess happily shared their newborn son with the world. Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on 6 May 2019 at the Portland Hospital in London. He was baptised wearing the royal christening gown by the Archbishop of Canterbury on 6 July 2019 in the Private Chapel of Windsor Castle. According to Vanity Fair, one of his godparents is Isabel Maya, former director of communications at Burberry, though the godparents have never formally been announced.

Royal tours

On the first day of their very first royal tour as a married couple, Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry arrived in Australia to a massive welcome at Sydney’s Opera House. The couple had just announced their pregnancy and were beaming throughout. They also visited Fiji and had a much-publicised trip to South Africa to champion charity causes there.

The couple announced they will sue the media

In a pivotal moment for them both, Markle took the decision to sue the publisher of the Mail on Sunday after the newspaper published a handwritten letter she sent to her estranged father.

The decision came as Prince Harry issued a statement criticising the British tabloid media. He cited a “relentless” campaign against his wife by some sections of the press and said he could no longer be a “silent witness to her private suffering”.

Though he emphasised his respect for the importance of “objective, truthful reporting”, he accused parts of the media of “waging campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences”.  He also compared the treatment of Meghan to coverage of his mother.

In a personal statement published on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s official website, Harry referred to the treatment of Princess Diana, saying his “deepest fear is history repeating itself”.

We can only wish them both happiness – and an easier time from some of the British tabloids – as they continue to navigate the undoubtedly tricky waters that come with trying to be a private royal couple, forever in the public eye.
