Prince Harry and Meghan have had quite the whirlwind year. The latest for the royal duo? None other than the birth of their baby, Archie Harrison, who is now the seventh in line to the British throne.
The baby was born on May 6, marking the biggest news for the couple since last year’s May wedding, which followed all the pomp and circumstances of royal unions before it. Since then, the couple’s marriage has not been business as usual because the two are not your average royals.
Long before marrying Harry, Meghan embraced her identity as a “strong, confident mixed-race woman” and had been vocal regarding her beliefs on feminism and liberal politics. She was a successful actress, a fashion spokesperson and ran a lifestyle blog, but when she met Prince Harry on a blind date, all bets were off.
As Harry and Meghan's bond grew, the soon-to-be duchess had to sacrifice parts of her former life in her transition from commoner to royal. In some aspects, the two have played by the rules, but in others, they’ve broken the mold — and become one of the most iconic couples in the process.
