For a long time, he was known as the “rebel” of the royal family, finding himself in some difficult situations.

Harry was becoming known as the world’s most eligible bachelor until he finally met American actress Meghan on a blind date in the summer of 2016. According to Town & Country, the couple hit it off immediately and officially became husband and wife in a 2018 ceremony that was broadcast live around the world.

It was in 2019 that Archie Harrison was born, and after becoming parents, most people can likely agree that they have never seen Meghan and Harry look so happy.
