Is Meghan Markle really a two-year quitter?Royal fans seem to think so. They have been carefully studying the Duchess of Sussex’s every move from the time her royal wedding engagement had been announced up until now.
The American actress who captured the heart of the carefree Prince Harry is one of the most-watched and recognizable figures around the globe, but to believe certain personal things have a limited shelf life with her may be a stretch too far. Or, is it?
It’s no secret that Meghan Markle is on her second marriage, but die-hard royal followers have taken a microscope to Markle’s dating history. Her marriage to first husband Trevor Engelson stopped short of making it to the two-mile (two years) mark. After their divorce, she began dating chef Cory Vitiello. That romance lasted two years.
Next up, Harry of Windsor. May 19th will mark the second anniversary for these two proud parents of baby Archie who turns one-year-old that same month.
After two years of dating, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot on May 19, 2018 in fairytale fashion and witnessed by millions around the world via television.
Not quite two years later, royal followers started noticing changes. Markle had her engagement ring redesigned and by the end of 2019, she swapped out the plain band for a diamond-studded stunner. Okay, so there is a noticeable pattern here, but the number two is not necessarily a magic number spelling doom.
During their 2017 courtship/engagement, Markle somewhat dipped her toes in royal duties by revealing what causes really mattered to her. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex even paired up with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to form a Royal Foundation, presenting a united front. The following year, Harry and Meghan left to create their own separate offices.
It’s now 2020 and two years after Markle has lived as a royal in the U.K., the couple made the shocking decision to abandon their roles as senior working royals and are quietly living, for the most part, in Canada.
While it is true Harry and Meghan are children of divorced parents and as such, statistically speaking, are likely to divorce themselves, it doesn’t mean they will. It’s also not fair to compare one relationship to another.
One source said this about the married couple, “They are real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs.” In one People report, another source says the two spend most of their time relaxing in their Vancouver Island home or hiking in the woods.
