As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrate their first wedding anniversary today, it’s hard – nay, almost impossible – to believe that they’ve been married for only 12 months. Doesn’t it feel like they, as a couple, have been dominating the headlines for years now? From their whirlwind romance to that star-studded royal wedding and the shrouded-in-mystery birth of their son, the Duke and Duchess have kept us all on our toes – and been the epitome of #couplegoals through it all, as evidenced by the moments below.

1

Loud and Clear

November 8, 2016

Only a few months into his relationship with the future duchess, Harry released a powerful statement to the media because he had had enough of how Meghan was being treated by the press and online trolls. This is the first time in the palace’s history that a statement like this has been released, showing that Harry is willing to go above and beyond to make it clear that this kind of abuse will not be tolerated – especially in light of the harassment faced by his mother, Princess Diana, at the hands of the paparazzi.

Roast Chicken and Royal Proposal

November 27, 2017

It may be an oldie, but man, is it a goodie. The very first interview that the royal couple did together just after their engagement stole all our hearts right from the start. You can’t not see how in love they are – that’s just under 21 minutes worth of #couplegoals if you’re keeping score.

"You Look Amazing."

May 19, 2018

It was this exact moment at the altar in St George’s Chapel, when Harry complimented his bride, that made the world collectively gush. “You look amazing,” were the words he quietly whispered before adding, “I’m so lucky.”

A Helping Hand

June 9, 2018

Meghan’s first appearance on the famous Buckingham Palace balcony coincided with her Trooping the Colour debut, and she needed a little help with social etiquette. In this blink-and-you-miss-it moment, the new Duchess had to curtsy to Queen Elizabeth, but found herself a little unsure about the timing. “Do it?” she whispered to her husband, to which he quickly replied, “Yes.”

Face Value

September, 20 2018

Meghan made her first speech as a member of the royal family last September, with the launch of her first charity project – the Together cookbook that “celebrates the power of cooking to connect us to one another” – only adding to the commemorative moment. The look of pride and support on Harry’s face after her speech was, well, priceless.

Hand Language

October 18, 2018

Of their many sweet PDA moments caught on film, this oh-so-subtle one in Melbourne during Meghan’s first international tour in October 2018 garnered a lot of attention – and for good reason. While holding Meghan’s hand, Harry reached behind his back to hold onto her with his other hand, lovingly stroking her hand with his thumb while carrying on with formalities.

Something New

December 14, 2018

For their first holiday season as a married couple, the beautiful duo used this breathtaking, previously unreleased black-and-white shot as their greeting card. The photograph, taken by Chris Allerton, is from their wedding reception at Frogmore House. It sparked controversy because their backs are towards the camera, but when have these two ever followed convention?

Let the Show Begin

January 16, 2019

In yet another case of two people holding hands making the headlines, the Duke and (a very pregnant) Duchess of Sussex shared an affectionate moment earlier this year at Royal Albert Hall while waiting for Cirque du Soleil to kick off.

Baby Makes Three

May 8, 2019

We’ve seen the royal couple beaming on countless occasions, but the introduction of their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world made for a truly unforgettable moment. Body-language experts have deciphered this event to indicate that Meghan is letting Harry bask in the glory of their son – he’s the one holding Archie, after all – while the alignment of their feet signals an equal playing field. We’d expect nothing less.
