Meghan Markle has appeared to seamlessly blend into the British royal family as if she were born in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s herself. Suits fan or not, it’s been incredible to watch Meghan go from Hollywood starlet to bona fide royalty in what feels like the blink of an eye. And with every step that she’s taken, she’s appeared to have more style and grace than the last. In the beginning, we watched Meghan confidently sit on the sidelines with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games. We then saw her beam with joy during her engagement interview. And of course who could forget the royal wedding (and all the engagements she’s had succeeding it)? At this point, the Duchess of Sussex feels like our (seriously #blessed) BFF, and we couldn’t be happier that she’s part of the royal family.
Since her relationship with Prince Harry was made public, drama has followed Meghan. Both her father, Thomas Markle, and half-sister Samantha Markle, have been relentless when it comes to talking to the media. But Meghan has always handled it class. Has she always known proper British protocol? Nope. But the Duchess of Sussex is quick with a swift recovery. Oh, and her relationship with Kate Middleton? #FriendshipGoals incarnate.
Meghan has only been a part of the British royal family for a few months, but she’s already solidified herself as a key member of The Firm. From solo outings with Queen Elizabeth to stolen moments with Prince Harry, here are our favorite royal moments of Meghan’s so far.
