Prince Harry of Wales
Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, (born Henry Charles Albert David; 15 September 1984) is a member of the British royal family. He is the younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales, and is sixth in the line of succession to the British throne.
Harry was educated at Wetherby Preparatory School, Ludgrove School and Eton College. He spent parts of his gap year in Australia and Lesotho. He then underwent officer training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He was commissioned as a cornet (i.e. second lieutenant) into the Blues and Royals, serving temporarily with his brother, Prince William, and completed his training as a troop leader. In 2007–08, he served for over ten weeks in Helmand, Afghanistan, but was pulled out after an Australian magazine revealed his presence there. He returned to Afghanistan for a 20-week deployment in 2012–13 with the Army Air Corps. He left the army in June 2015.
Harry launched the Invictus Games in 2014 and remains patron of its foundation. He also gives patronage to several other organisations, including the HALO Trust, the London Marathon Charitable Trust, and Walking With The Wounded. On 19 May 2018, he married the American actress Meghan Markle. Hours before the wedding, his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II conferred on him the titles Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel, all in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. The couple's son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, was born on 6 May 2019.Read more...
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (; born Rachel Meghan Markle; August 4, 1981) is an American member of the British royal family and a former actress.
Markle was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Her acting career began while she was studying at Northwestern University. She attributed early career difficulties to her biracial heritage. Her last and most significant on-screen role during that period was that of Rachel Zane in the American legal drama Suits, in which she starred for seven seasons (2011–2018). She simultaneously profited from a strong social media presence, including a lifestyle blog, The Tig (2014–2017). Through The Tig she gained recognition for her fashion sense, which led to creating and releasing two lines of clothing in 2015–2016. During her acting career, Markle became involved in charity work, focusing primarily on women's issues and social justice.
Markle was married to American film producer Trevor Engelson from 2011 until their divorce in 2013. She retired from acting upon her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018, and started undertaking engagements as a member of the British royal family. Since then, she has been known as Duchess of Sussex. The marriage prompted comments about having a mixed-race person in the royal family. The couple stepped down as senior members of the royal family in 2020 following a period of privacy issues and perceived hostile treatment by particularly the British tabloids. They subsequently settled in her native California, where they are pursuing business ventures and charity work. They have two children, Archie and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor.Read more...
