‘They have since celebrated their wedding anniversary and welcomed their son, Archie, into the world.’

The couple shared a second image from their official engagement shoot in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, much loved by his late mother Princess Diana.
Back in November 2017, Prince Harry said he was ‘thrilled’ to be marrying Meghan Markle and admitted he knew the Suits star was ‘the one’ from ‘the first day we met’.
Meghan also showed the world her engagement ring designed by Harry himself containing two diamonds from Princess Diana’s own personal collection set in a gold band.
His fiancee stroked his arm lovingly as they spoke to reporters, who asked him: ‘When did you know she was the one?’ and he replied: ‘From the very first time we met’.
The glowing bride chose an Audrey Hepburn-style gown in a classic style as opposed to the beaded number she was predicted to wear for her wedding on 19 May, 2018

He refused to say how he proposed saying: ‘That will come later’ but when asked if it was romantic he said: ‘Of course it was’ – but the couple didn’t kiss for the cameras.
The prince said he was ‘thrilled, over the moon’ adding: ‘Very glad it’s not raining as well.’ Meghan said she was ‘so happy, thank you’ before they wandered back into Kensington Palace beaming.
The couple tied the knot at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on 19 May 2018 and shared tears, laughter and a passionate kiss in front of their hundreds of VIP guests.
Those in attendance were dominated by Hollywood stars including the Clooneys, the Beckhams, Idris Elba, Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hardy and James Corden.
Elton John, who sang at Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997, performed at the lunchtime reception hosted by the Queen in a poignant nod to Harry’s late mother.
All the senior British royals were also there to support the couple including Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Philip, Harry’s best man Prince William and his wife Kate, who brought George and Charlotte but left baby Louis with the nanny.
