The world watched as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said "I do" on 19 May 2018.

The couple tied the knot in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle before welcoming a baby boy, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, one year later on 6 May.

Though the couple has had a rather tumultuous start to the year after making the unprecedented decision to exit the royal firm and live a more independent life, they’ve got a lot to celebrate this month.

After watching Archie laugh and smile with his mom on his birthday as they read together, we looked at pictures of the youngest royal’s first 365 days around the sun.

Now, to celebrate Harry and Meghan’s two-year anniversary, we thought we’d look back at some of our favourite moments from the royal wedding that had 11.5 million people glued to their screens.
