Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Celebrate One Year Together: A Timeline of Their Romance
Happy anniversary, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!
Around this time last year, the beloved royal and Suits star were just beginning what is now one of the most high-profile romantic pairings in the U.S. and across the pond. Time flies, right?!
It would be another few months before news of Prince Harry’s latest love captivated public attention, and let’s be honest, interest surrounding this duo hasn’t subsided. From their trips back and forth between London and Toronto (where the actress is currently based), undercover rendezvous to locales like Norway and Jamaica and all of their highly-anticipated debuts at public events, things between Meghan and Harry seem nothing short of swell.
In fact, a source recently told E! News the couple is “in an extremely solid and happy place at the moment,” though it’s unclear how they plan to celebrate their relationship milestone.
“They aren’t rushing ahead at a ridiculous speed or making rash decisions,” the insider explained, “But, yes, they love each other very much and neither could imagine being without the other.”
So in honor of their whirlwind romance and one-year anniversary, take a trip down memory lane with Prince Harry and Meghan by reliving their love story one meet-cute at a time.
HARRY’S NEW GIRL
As late October 2016 rolled around, British tabloids began reporting that the redheaded royal had found love with the American actress. The pair was successful in remaining under-the-radar for the first few months of their relationship, but Harry and Meghan’s secrecy didn’t last long.
HEAD OVER HEELS
An E! News source described their romance as “serious” in early November, adding that Harry, 32, isn’t necessarily the type to take things slow. “It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s already thinking about engagement just because that’s where his head goes, but that’s not where the relationship is at right now,” our insider shared. “This is totally Harry. The problem with Harry is when he falls, he falls hard. He goes in big time.”
The Suits star was photographed for the first time only a week after news of the high-profile relationship broke while leaving her home in Toronto.
On November 8, 2016, Kensington Palace confirmed their boyfriend-girlfriend status while defending the L.A.-based celeb from a “wave of abuse and harassment” over her race and gender on social media. The unprecedented statement continued, “Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her. It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm.”
The brunette beauty was photographed in November shopping at a Whole Foods Market not far from Kensington Palace’s Nottingham Cottage, where Kate Middleton and Prince William used to reside. Markle reportedly stayed with Harry during her quick trip across the pond.
