Royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can’t seem to escape the public eye. While many fans adore the duo, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex often face backlash. Despite any obstacles that are thrown their way, Meghan and Harry’s relationship is a force to be reckoned with.
From the stress of dealing with Meghan’s estranged father leading up to their I Do’s in May 2018 to the joyous birth of their son Archie in May 2019, Meghan and Harry have certainly experienced a rollercoaster of emotions together in just the past year alone.

In Tembisa, Johannesburg, today The Duke and Duchess visited to meet young entrepreneurs at the YES hub – a hive for creativity and social enterprise. Their visit was an amazing tour of the ingenuity and opportunity – seeing businesses that varied from food to essential sanitary products for local women. During their visit, they were able to sample food from ‘Chef Mish’ – a local masterchef winner – which he makes at the site as part of his catering business and cafe. They then joined YES community members to take part in training and tests that will help them gain skills and find work. On the third stop today, entrepreneur Moss showed The Duke and Duchess the organic produce he's growing in the township with aquaponics – supplying local restaurants. And finally, The Duke and Duchess met the women behind the amazing Blossom Care Solutions – who are making 80,000 sanitary pads every month for women in their community. They are 100% compostable, and provide an essential low-cost product for women and girls. The Duchess has long campaigned on this issue and wrote in Time magazine in 2017, saying: “In communities all over the globe, young girls’ potential is being squandered because we are too shy to talk about the most natural thing in the world. To that I say: we need to push the conversation, mobilize policy making surrounding menstrual health initiatives, support organizations who foster girls’ education from the ground up, and within our own homes, we need to rise above our puritanical bashfulness when it comes to talking about menstruation.” • See our previous post to see The Dukes speech #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica Photo ©️ PA images
Negative headlines, even when untrue, can affect anybody–even a couple as royal as Meghan and Harry. Luckily, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have become even closer as scrutiny has tried to tear them down. An inside source recently confirmed the couple’s unwavering strength with People.
“They definitely lean on each other during challenging times,” the source told People. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Meghan and Harry relied on each other throughout their recent trip to South Africa, which was excitedly baby Archie’s first official royal outing.
The family spent their time in South Africa happily meeting with human rights activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu. It’s no secret that travelling with a baby can be difficult, especially a 5-month-old. However, the royal family appeared calm, cool, and collected at public outings as a happy family.
Meghan recently revealed during an outing that “parenting” is something new that both her and Prince Harry are learning every single day. They both have already deemed each other as the “best mom” and the “best dad” -- how sweet!
The inside source also told People that Meghan and Harry “are a unit.” The source added that Meghan is “just focusing on what she and Harry are trying to accomplish and not be distracted.”
