Another People’s Princess
Meghan has stunned the world as she continued with her Royal duties right up until late March.
Her dedication to her commitments in the later stages of pregnancy was even acknowledged by Queen Elizabeth as being extraordinary.
However, not everybody has been impressed with Meghan’s dedication.
With rumours suggesting there was a rift between the sister-in-laws, Kate and Meghan.
Recently, Kensington Palace was forced to issue a statement discrediting all claims of a feud.
A Royal Romance
In 2016, the couples romance stunned the world, with reports suggesting that Meghan wasn’t good enough for Prince Harry.
Meghan, a once divorced, Hollywood star, made famous from her role in the legal drama series, Suits. While she isn’t a typical choice for a royal, she was a breath of fresh air to the young Prince Harry, who fell fast in love.
However, after just a few months, Prince Harry was forced to defend his now-wife against the endless scrutiny she was facing.
While Meghan has appeared to remain calm, the media storm has done anything but end as rumours swirled.
Friends of the couple have even likened the negative media obsession to what Princess Diana endured in the lead up to her death.
After close to a year and a half of courtship, Prince Harry proposed to Meghan. The proposal was seemingly low-key, and confirmed in November 2017, with a May 2018 wedding to follow.
Now the couple will be able to celebrate their one-year wedding anniversary as a complete family.
