While you may expect a royal anniversary to be defined by a lot of glitz and glamour, even royals just want a laid-back celebration sometimes.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's book, Finding Freedom, is being rereleased this month with a brand-new epilogue that will feature insight on the couple's past year, including their interview with Oprah and the birth of their daughter, Lilibet. And among the new tidbits being added, Town & Country revealed that it will offer details on how the pair spent their second wedding anniversary.
Historically, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have kept their anniversaries fairly low-key. Although they took a three-week trip to Botswana prior to their engagement, their first wedding anniversary was a little less adventurous, given that Markle had given birth to their son, Archie, only two weeks before. And it sounds like their second anniversary was similarly casual, especially since it occurred during the start of the pandemic.
The authors of the book, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, write, “With restaurant outing off-limits, the couple had to get a little creative in May for their second-anniversary festivities at home, spending part of the day looking back at their 2018 with a number of people who had been part of the wedding festivities, including vendors that had helped bring their magical Windsor Castle ceremony to life.”
