Markle’s music video appearance came four years before she met Prince Harry in July 2016. The following year, the couple got engaged and in May 2018, they tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in England.

The actress’ marriage to Harry, 36, marked the first time an American had married into the British royal family. The couple have since stepped back as senior royals and no longer go by their titles the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The pair, who share 19-month-old son Archie, moved to Los Angeles in March after relocating to Canada during the 2019 holiday season. The couple have faced many ups and down during 2020, including tensions with Harry’s family across the pond.

Markle spoke out last month amid the pair’s rocky year, revealing that she suffered a miscarriage in July. A source later told Us Weekly that the loss was “absolutely devastating” for the couple but it has “brought them closer together and made them stronger.”
