Prince Harry Got Meghan Markle the Most Romantic Gift for Their Second Anniversary

Since their move to Los Angeles, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry have been living a very low-key life. Aside from some volunteering stints with local organizations amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and some Zoom call appearances with some U.K. charities, the Sussexes have stayed out of the spotlight.

The couple and their young son, Archie Harrison, are reportedly living in media mogul Tyler Perry‘s $18 million Beverly Hills mansion. Though they have been quarantining and practicing social distancing, Meghan was finally able to see her mother, Doria Ragland for Mother’s Day, and they reportedly have grown close with singer Adele, who lives five minutes away from them.

The duke and duchess celebrated their second wedding anniversary on May 19 and the duke got his wife the absolute sweetest gift.

Today, we are excited to be able to announce details for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s upcoming tour to Africa! • In just two weeks, Their Royal Highnesses will embark on this official tour focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment. This programme has been many months in the making, and The Duke and Duchess are eager to focus their energies on the great work being done in Southern Africa. From meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu to joining ‘Waves for Change’ on Monwabisi Beach, the South Africa programme will be educational and inspiring. The Duke is especially proud to continue the legacy left by his mother with her work in Angola as he joins Halo Trust again in an effort to rid the world of landmines. HRH will also travel to Malawi where he will check in on the British Army’s partnership with African Parks and will be working on the ground supporting local communities. The Duke is particularly proud to be able to deliver an exciting new initiative, a Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy three-country partnership which he designed and consulted with Governments in Namibia, Botswana and Angola to protect forest and wildlife corridors around the Okavango Delta. The Duchess will be working with local organisations to promote women and girls’ health and education, entrepreneurship and leadership. With such a textured culture and history, Their Royal Highnesses are grateful for the opportunity to connect with those on the ground in Southern Africa and to be inspired by the work being done and learn how they can be better supported. As President and Vice President of The Queens Commonwealth Trust and The Duke’s role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, The Duke and Duchess cannot wait to meet with young leaders mobilising change and adding to the beauty of these Commonwealth countries • “We look forward to seeing you soon!” • Photo ©️ PA images / Tim Graham – Getty Images / @Sentebale /@AfricanParksNetwork / @YouthAlert

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are closer than ever

Amid Megxit and their move to the United States during a global pandemic, Meghan and Prince Harry have faced more than their share of challenges this year. However, the adversity and constant criticism that they’ve faced as a couple and individually has only strengthened their bond with one another.

The pair are still very much smitten and in love with one another. “So much has happened for Meghan and Harry, but I’m told by a source very close to them that all of the experiences, the challenges, the obstacles of 2019 and 2020, have really made them even closer,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight.

Despite everything that has happened, being outside of the royal bubble has really allowed the Sussexes to slow down and connect with one another. “One of the things I was told by a friend of the couple’s is that they actually are enjoying the slightly slower pace,” Nicholl said. “They are busy and they are doing quite a lot behind the scenes, but you know, this is a couple that tends to operate 100 miles per hour. I think they’re enjoying the lockdown and the fact that they’ve been able to take a bit of a breather.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated their anniversary with a day off work

Though their second wedding anniversary fell on a Tuesday, the Sussexes still made it a special day. The duo took the day off work to celebrate with their son, Archie.

“The day will simply be quality time with one another and as a family,” a source close to the couple told Harper’s Bazaar. “They’re not going to be doing any work and made sure they have no meetings or calls in the diary. Like everyone else, they are in lockdown at the moment, so they will just be hanging out together at home. But it will still be a lovely day.”

Though they kept things low-key, the couple still exchanged gifts to mark their special day. “Meghan designed Harry’s card, and hand wrote a beautiful, sentimental message inside expressing her love for him,” an insider told US Weekly. “Harry surprised Meghan with a huge, stunning bouquet of roses and a ring, which she loves.”

The ring is super important. According to Harper’s Bazaar the prince worked wth renowned jeweler Lorraine Schwartz to create a bespoke conflict-free diamond eternity band. It includes birthstones for himself, Meghan, and Archie on the underside of the piece.
