Meghan Markle and Prince Harry became some of the most talked-about celebrities in recent years. Not only for their bold moves, such as exiting official senior royal member life but also for Markle's bold fashion style

It has been over a year since they decided to leave the UK, step down from their duties as senior royals and settle in the US, raise their family, and live a different life away from the rest of the royals.

FAMILY MATTERS

Prince Harry and Markle are parents to two adorable babies, a son, Archibald Windsor Mountbatten, and an infant daughter, Lilibet, born in June.

The second time parents have been cautious and conscious about their responsibilities and never fail to put their family first. Even though they are no longer working senior members of the royal family, the couple is mindful of the details they reveal.

Concerning their kids, they seldom share photos of them. They are yet to release images of their daughter but continue to speak lovingly about her.

When asked during her NYC trip about Lilibet, Markle responded that she is "beautiful." The mother of two, who enjoys motherhood, also gave a thumbs up when they inquired about her son.

Her first children's book, "The Bench," is dedicated to her husband and son, who she explained makes her heart pump. At first, the publication was a poem for Harry, but it later captured their first moments of motherhood.

While under constant scrutiny by the media, Prince Harry and Markle continue to focus on the causes they hold near and dear.
