Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's story as a couple began in the summer of 2016 - a whirlwind romance kept carefully away from prying eyes. And only 18 months after they met, they announced they were tying the knot.

Meghan Markle, bride

It was definitely a set-up: it was a blind date.

Introduced through a mutual friend, they say they connected straight away.

Prince Harry, groom

The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was a sort of confirmation to me that everything - all the stars were aligned, everything was just perfect, it was this beautiful woman just sort of literally tripped and fell into my life; I fell into her life…

Within days of their engagement, the couple were already crisscrossing the UK, representing the Royal Family and throwing their support behind a range of humanitarian causes.

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say "I do", they will not only be man and wife, but will have new titles - as Duke and Duchess - marking the start of a new chapter for the younger generation of the British Royal Family.

In the 1930s, marrying an American divorcee led Prince Harry's great-great uncle King Edward VIII to abdicate. Times have changed, as Meghan Markle was born in the US and is divorced.
