Updates about Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle gave up her acting career after Suits after the seventh season ended. She moved from Toronto to live with Prince Harry in England. In November 2017, they became engaged and got married on May 19, 2018.

She attended Catholic schools and grew up as a Protestant. Therefore, before she could marry Prince Harry she was baptized and confirmed into the Church of England to honor Queen Elizabeth.

Meghan and Harry wed at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. They did not follow many traditions of other royal weddings. For instance, they got married on a Saturday instead of a weekday. They did not get married in Westminster Abbey. Instead, they chose a smaller more intimate place that seats only 800 people. They did invite 2,640 people to be on the ground of the Castle to see the couple as they left their wedding and went on a chariot ride.

Meghan made royal public appearances with her future husband before they were married. Queen Elizabeth dubbed them the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as soon as they were officially married.

Mom To Be

In October 2018 after just six months of being married, the official announcement came from Kensington Palace that the Duchess of Sussex was pregnant. She and Prince Harry are excited about starting a family. Their first child is expected in the Spring of 2019 before their first wedding anniversary.
