Almost every little girl dreams of marrying and prince when she grows up. They envision the day when they get to live in a palace, with everything they could ever want. For Meghan Markle, this is actually a reality.
From the time that the couple met on a blind date, they both knew their relationship was meant to be. Indeed it was, as the world watched eagerly as Meghan and Harry got married in a lavish royal ceremony in Windsor, emerging from St. Mary's.
Although she made a name for herself as a successful actress long before she was ever introduced to Prince Harry, marrying into the royal family has thrust Meghan into the spotlight much more than ever before . While there is no doubt that it has been an overall positive experience, her new life is not always easy.
Prince Harry and Meghan quietly dated for months before going public with their relationship. By the time they announced they were a couple, things were already pretty serious, and suddenly, royal fans and media began speculating about and anticipating a proposal.
According to Town and Country Meghan and Harry began to grow increasingly closer, and she finally started a sporting stunning diamond ring designed by Harry on her left hand. On May 19, 2018, they made things officially when they became a husband and wife.
A new life as a royal
In the span of a few short years, Meghan went from being an actress to becoming one of the most photographed women in the world. Her life was suddenly completely different, and moving to England to be with Harry was only the beginning.
Nicki Swift reports that Meghan had to make more than a few changes to be a member of the royal family. She had to shut down all her personal social media accounts, as well as her lifestyle blog, The Tig. She is no longer allowed to do things that the rest of us take for granted, such as taking selfies, voting, and talking about political beliefs.
Probably the biggest change in Meghan's life was that she had to retire from her successful acting career upon marrying Prince Harry. And that's not all. According to RSVPlive, Meghan has cut ties with some of her former close friends and is having trouble knowing "who she can trust."
