The Duke & Duchess of Sussex celebrate their first wedding anniversary!

Today is quite a special day, as Harry and Meghan are celebrating their first wedding anniversary. Last year, the couple got married at St George’s Chapel, on the grounds of Windsor Castle. As we’ve come to know, Windsor is quite special for the couple: their engagement portraits were taken at Frogmore House (and their evening reception was held there) and now they live at Frogmore Cottage. To celebrate this wonderful day, the couple shared a lovely video on their instagram account with the following statement:

Happy one year anniversary to Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex!

Today marks the one year anniversary of the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Their Royal Highnesses exchanged vows at St George’s Chapel within the grounds of Windsor Castle on May 19th, 2018.

The selected song “This Little Light of Mine” was chosen by the couple for their recessional. We hope you enjoy reliving this moment, and seeing some behind the scenes photos from this special day.

A message from The Duke & Duchess: Thank you for all of the love and support from so many of you around the world. Each of you made this day even more meaningful.

The Royal Foundation supports the launch of the Shout Helpline

The Royal Foundation supports the launch of the Shout Helpline

The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke & Duchess of Sussex, via their Royal Foundation, are supporting a digital Mental Health initiative: the Shout text helpline, available 24/7. This project is an extension of Heads Together, the initiative that Catherine, William and Harry began in 2016 with the Royal Foundation. Harry and Meghan have been meeting with the team and volunteers since late last year.

Shout UK is the country’s first free text service available to anyone, at anytime if you are struggling with something, you need immediate help or just need someone to talk to. The charity gathered 1,000 volunteers over the past year, who’ve quietly helped 60,000 people. Shout partners with various organizations such as The Royal Foundation (in partnership with the Heads Together initiative), Crisis Text Line and BBC Children in Need.

You can sign up as a volunteer by visiting their website.

Here’s a statement from The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke & Duchess of Sussex on the initiative, which is poised to helps thousands of people. You can learn more about the initative on Harry & Meghan’s Instagram.

“We are incredibly excited to be launching this service, knowing it has the potential to reach thousands of vulnerable people every day. Over the last few months Shout has started working quietly behind the scenes. We have all been able to see the service working up close and are so excited for its future. At the heart of this service will be an incredible national volunteer community, one which needs to grow to allow us to support more people in crisis. We hope that many more of you will join us and be part of something very special.”

Inside Harry & Meghan’s Intimate Photocall with their son

Harper’s Bazaar is sharing some behind the scenes info on today’s lovely photocall at St. George’s Hall, Windsor Castle.

Before the world had seen his face or knew his name, Baby Sussex quickly became the most famous newborn on the planet. The son of the Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, and the first biracial baby born into the Windsor family, had quite the welcome party in Windsor after his arrival on May 6, with well-wishers filling the town’s streets and the world’s press camped out in eager anticipation of details about the newest member of the royal family.

And now, two days after his birth at Portland Hospital in central London, Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s firstborn has made his global debut at Windsor Castle. During an intimate media call—just two photographers, one agency reporter, and three video cameras present—the Sussexes proudly shared a first look at their family of three.

As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked into St. George’s Hall, where they celebrated their wedding reception nearly one year ago, camera shutters clicked away to capture the newborn royal, wrapped in the G.H. Hurt & Son shawl traditionally worn by royal babies (Prince George, Prince Charlotte, and Prince Louis all wore similar pieces for their debuts). Chris Allerton, the couple’s wedding party photographer, was there to take photos, which were later shared to the @sussexroyal Instagram account.

“This was a very special moment for the couple—one they won’t forget.”

After posing for photos, the Duchess got candid about the “magic” of motherhood, telling the cameras, “I have the two best guys in the world, and so I am really happy.” She noted her son has the “sweetest temperament.”

Prince Harry, his arms wrapped tightly around his son, looked on proudly. When asked who Baby Sussex looks like, he noted, “Everyone says babies change so much over two weeks, so we’re basically monitoring how this changing process happens over the next month, really. But his looks are changing every single day.” Meghan added that the family ran into the Duke of Edinburgh on their way to meet the cameras, but would soon be paying a visit to the queen.

“They are so proud but probably quite relieved to have gotten the photos out the way … They’re rather tired!”
