If there's one thing about celebrities that we can relate to, it is the ups and downs in their relationships---because let's face it: money can't buy you marital bliss. Over the years, we've seen many celebrities tie the knot in a grandiose manner, only to have their marriage end in a very public fallout.
This is also true for the royal family, who are notorious for their over-the-top fairytale weddings, the most recent one of which was the Sussexes'. Prince Harry was considered the most eligible bachelor in the United Kingdom until he fell head-over-heels for American actress, Meghan Markle.
The two tied the knot in a very public wedding attended by hundreds of high-profile guests and witnessed by millions of people around the world. But as with all celebrity relationships, Harry and Meghan quickly realized that it will not be easy to sustain their marriage in the spotlight.
Meghan was subjected to media scrutiny even before she joined the royal family. The former actress's relationship with her family was blown out of proportion by the tabloids, a move a tarnished her reputation and put a strain on her mental health.
But when the pressure became too hard to handle, the couple decided to part ways from The Firm and denounce their royal titles and duties, an announcement that came as a shock to everyone including the Royal Family. The couple is now settled in L.A., Meghan's old Hollywood home, but the move has presented a new set of challenges to their marriage.
One of the biggest concerns the couple had with The Firm was the lack of support and inclusion Meghan received when she was first integrated into the family. Meghan was constantly criticized for trying to outshine her husband, Prince Harry, during public outings, despite the fact that Meghan had her own celebrity and global fanbase prior to becoming the Duchess.
In recent court documents obtained by the tabloids from Meghan Markle's case against Daily Mail, the Dutchess admits to feeling unprotected from the barrage of media allegations because she was much lower in the hierarchy than Kate.
But even two years after their marriage, the couple are more in love than ever, especially because of the challenges they have faced over the past few months which have only brought them closer to each other.
