Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Sweetest Moments Since Their Royal Wedding
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle still have those newlywed vibes going on, and they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. While they had their fair share of adorable moments before getting married, they’ve managed to have even more loving exchanges in public since the royal wedding.
Here are the sweetest moments we’ve seen between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex from the day they tied the knot until now.
Harry’s proud moment
Find yourself someone who looks at you the way Harry looks at his Markle. The Duke of Sussex couldn’t disguise his pride after watching his wife deliver her first ever speech as a royal. On Sept. 20, 2018, Markle spoke from the heart while hosting an event for the charity cookbook she launched to help survivors of the Grenfell Tower Fire (titled Together: Our Community Cookbook). We can certainly see why Harry couldn’t keep the look of complete awe off his face.

Although royal family members have tricks up their sleeves for remaining put-together in public at all times, not all fashion hacks can fight against the wind. When Harry and Markle were out during a public engagement, Markle’s hair caught a gust of wind that flew right into Harry’s face. Of course, they remained totally calm, cutely smiled at each other, and Harry jokingly (but sweetly) patted down Markle’s hair for her. That’s what husbands are for, right?
Harry giving Markle a shoutout
When Harry delivered his own speech at the WellChild Awards in early September 2018, he couldn’t help but give his wife a shoutout. Given that this was the first time Markle ever attended this award ceremony, Harry mentioned in his speech, “I have been a patron of the organization for 11 years now, this year I am especially grateful to be able to share the scope and magnitude of this work with my wife, who joins me here this evening.”
This discreet back rub

My German is a little rusty but I’m pretty sure that she’s saying: “Harry can’t wait to get his wife home tonight!” They’re just the cutest royal newlyweds!! #harryandmeghan #meghanandharry #princeharry #meghanmarkle #duchessmeghan #sweetheartsofsussex #royalpda #sussexpda #wellchildawards #britishroyalfamily #thesetwo #princessdiana #couplegoals #britishroyals #royal #princegeorge #princesscharlotte #princelouis #royalty #meghan #dukeandduchessofsussex #royalfamily #royalcouple #newlyweds
Despite royal protocol, Harry and Markle sneak in a little bit of PDA whenever they can. Whether that means a sweet peck on the lips or a gentle back rub, we can tell it’s tough for the two of them to keep their hands off of each other. The gentle way Harry rubbed Markle’s back above may have been discreet, but it was just enough to remind us just how in love they really are.
This picture really says it all. After Harry competed in the Sentebale Polo Cup in July 2018, he was clearly more interested in his new wife than he was in the trophy being handed to him. This congratulatory kiss hasn’t been their first public smooch, and it certainly won’t be their last.
Harry won’t let anyone mess with Markle
During Harry and Markle’s trip to Ireland, Harry stood up for Markle — against a 3-year-old. The young fan not only grabbed for the Duchess of Sussex’s hair, but gave her a playful poke. While Markle giggled at the whole ordeal, Harry decided to (jokingly) take the matter into his own hands by “scolding” the child. Everyone knew it was in good fun, and it resulted in some totally adorable photo ops.
