Can you believe it’s been just two years since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got engaged?!
The royal pair have been on the fast track to family life since then, and are celebrating with an album of cute #couplesgoals photos on Instagram. Each marks a special point in their relationship – their engagement, their wedding and their six-month-old son Archie’s arrival.
“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!” the caption on the photos read.
“They have since celebrated their wedding anniversary and welcomed their son, Archie, into the world.”
Nawww. The wedding photo has not been seen before and it shows the pair looking in love and relaxed.

A tough two years
When they first got engaged everything appeared pretty peachy with the press, who seemed thrilled with the promise of lots of royal romance stories.
Since then it’s been a bit of a downward spiral, with the media vs Meghan drama hitting an all-time low a couple of months ago as she was criticised for everything from the way she carries herself (too pregnant!) to the way she holds baby Archie (all wrong!), to the shoes she wears (too big!) to the way she relates to her husband (too touchy-feely!).
In the face of all this, the pair pleaded for privacy, respect and kindness in a much-talked-about raw documentary shot on their official family tour of South Africa.
They’ve since been pretty quiet, staying out of the spotlight mostly and concentrating on what they refer to as “family time”.
“The duke and duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much-needed family time,” People magazine reports.
We’re guessing this timing means the family are set to celebrate Thanksgiving together, given Meghan’s heritage.
They’ll then head into Christmas, which they’re set to spend with Meg’s mum, rather than at Sandringham with the Queen, Prince William and the other royals.
Here’s hoping things are much peachier for them in 2020. #PoorThings
