Like so many others this season, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are stuck spending life milestones from the comfort of home amid quarantine. However, they were still able to celebrate their second wedding anniversary yesterday in the most relatable way: with a low-key family day.
A friend close to the couple revealed the royal couple's anniversary plans to People saying, "The family is spending a quiet day together." Another source friendly with the royals even told Page Six that the Duke and Duchess took the day off from work. "They’re laying low, taking the day to relax and be together with no distractions. No work. No calls. Just family time and keeping it simple," said the source.
Of course, the laid-back affair was much different than their spectacle of a wedding two years ago. Markle turned heads in her plain, bateau neck Givenchy gown (and started a major bridal fashion trend), made history with her fierce solo walk down the aisle and how could we forget her stunning second look? Besides, it's every day that we get to witness someone become a princess right before our eyes!
However, plenty has changed for the couple since saying "I do" on May 19, 2018 in Windsor. In the two years since, they've welcomed a son, stepped down from royal duties and moved across the pond to Canada before settling into life in Los Angeles for the time being. Reports claim the family-of-three is currently residing in a sprawling Beverly Hills mansion owned by Tyler Perry and plan to search for a property of their own in the area was the coronavirus lockdown loosens.
Just two weeks ago, on May 6, they celebrated their young son Archie's first birthday in a more "extravagant" way than their own anniversary. Markle reportedly baked a strawberries and cream cake while Prince Harry tackled decoration duty—if only we could have been on the invite list!
