The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary on Sunday 19 May.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marked six years of marriage on Sunday 19 May. The pair’s royal wedding took place in 2018 at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a fairytale wedding, attended by the then- Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, the now- King Charles and Queen Camilla as well as Prince William, Kate Middleton and Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.

After the ceremony, Prince Harry and Meghan took a horse-drawn carriage ride around Windsor to greet the crowds that had gathered along the streets. Afterwards, the pair had an afternoon reception in St. George’s Hall of the castle.

This six-year wedding anniversary comes just after the pair took a three-day trip to Nigeria, the previous weekend. The pair were reportedly welcomed to Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, by a fugitive wanted in the US for money laundering and bank fraud up to $20 million (R362 million).


Prince Harry and Meghan are celebrating their sugar anniversary. According to the Daily Mail, this is referred to as the “sugar anniversary” because of the traditional gift given for the anniversary.

According to tradition, The “sugar anniversary” symbolises the sweet story of how the couple fell in love each other, along with the richness of everlasting love. However, the royal family has seemingly snubbed the pair’s sixth wedding anniversary as there has been no social media posts from Buckingham Palace nor Kensington Palace. As per The Mirror, other royals have also not paid tribute or shared memories relating to the couple’s six-year anniversary.

However, there was still an unrelated post from the royal family’s social media account on Sunday 18 May. Take a look…

“A message from His Majesty The King on the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Monte Cassino. The message was read by The Duchess of Edinburgh at the Service of Commemoration at Cassino War Cemetery, Italy,” read the post.

Prince Harry and Meghan quit their duties as senior working members of the royal family in 2020. The Sussexes then moved to California where they started a new life with their family. Prince Harry and Meghan have two children together – Prince Archie (4) and Princess Lilibet (2).
