Serena Williams Surprises BFF with a gift only her can give - wishes Meghan and Harry a Beautiful Fifth Anniversary


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are celebrating their fifth anniversary today (Monday 16 Oct).


"There is no more lovely, friendly, and charming relationship, communion, or company than a good marriage" Meghan Markle and Harry Celebrates 5 Years wedding Anniversary In Love and Criticism

This year’s anniversary is perhaps overshadowed by a recent incident with the paparazzi, where an alleged car chase involving the royal couple is said to have lasted two hours through the streets of New York City on (15 oct).

While contrasting accounts of the events are still being unearthed, representatives of the Sussexes have said the incident was “near catastrophic” and that members of the paparazzi involved were “highly aggressive”.

As the pair mark five years of marriage, we take a look back at the beginnings of their relationship and wedding day.

The first date

Meghan and Harry met through mutual friends in London in July 2016, and went on their first date to the private member’s club Soho House.

In the first episode of their Netflix documentary series, Harry & Meghan, the couple recalled their first date, with Meghan revealing that Harry was late.

“We met at 76 Dean Street. You were late!” Meghan recalled to Harry as they were interviewed side-by-side on a sofa. “And I couldn’t understand why he would be late.”

The former Suits star then revealed Harry’s tardiness almost put her off him, because she did not want to date “one of those guys who have so much of an ego that any girl would sit waiting for a half hour for you”.

Harry, who told Meghan at the time that he was stuck in traffic, admitted: “I was panicking, I was freaking out. I was sweating.”

He said he arrived as a “hot, sweaty red ball of mess”, and Meghan realised he was “genuinely so embarrassed [to be] late”.

The couple announced their engagement in November 2017 and were interviewed by the BBC’s Mishal Hussain at their home, Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor, about the news.

Harry proposed to Meghan with a custom ring made by court jewellers Cleave and Company using one diamond sourced from Botswana and two smaller stones from Princess Diana’s collection.
