“What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun, and frivolity.
You’ve made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy.”May 2017 After months of “will she or won’t she” speculation, Markle attends Pippa Middleton’s wedding reception as Harry’s date (she wasn’t invited to the ceremony—but lest you perceive this as a slight, it’s a common English custom for plus ones or peripheral guests).
But it won’t end the widespread public interest in the couple.
That’s not just a reflection of Harry’s checkered public image (a British soldier who served in Afghanistan, Harry had years earlier sparked controversy for attending a costume party in Nazi regalia).

Markle is no Kate Middleton, who kept a low public profile while dating William and has seamlessly slid into the public role expected of the woman who will be Britain’s next queen.
It’s reported the two went to see a West End play and maybe even bought a Christmas tree. March 2017 Harry and Markle go to Jamaica for the wedding of Harry’s friend Tom “Skipp” Inskip.
They reportedly stay at the island’s glamorous Round Hill Hotel and Villas.
The engagement rumor mill reaches a fever pitch—so much so that British bookmakers stop taking bets on whether or not they’re going to get engaged, because it’s no longer a question of if but when.
Reportedly, their visit is capped off by a trip to Victoria Falls. “I’m sure there will be a time when we have to come forward and present ourselves, and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. Personally, I love a great love story.”Markle and Harry make their first official appearance together at the Invictus Games in Toronto.
The royal family announced that Markle will become a British citizen before she marries Harry during a May 19, 2018 ceremony in Windsor Castle.
