Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are spending quality time together amid pregnancy rumors.
The couple were seen together in Santa Barbara on Friday at a restaurant called Sushi Bar. TMZ shared a series of photos, featuring the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in causual outfits.
While Meghan was wearing a chocolate brown wraparound dress with long sleeves, Harry dressed casually in white slacks and a black t-shirt. The outing took place after Harry returned back to the United States after visiting the United Kingdom for King Charles’ coronation last weekend.
Meghan Markle, previously denied the rumors of her King Charles coronation absence being linked to racism. Her rep said, “The Duchess of Sussex is going about her life in the present, not thinking about correspondence from two years ago related to conversations from four years ago.”
“Any suggestion otherwise is false and frankly ridiculous,” the rep continued. “We encourage tabloid media and various royal correspondents to stop the exhausting circus that they alone are creating.”
Meghan and Harry first met in July 2016 through mutual friends. They managed to keep their relationship relatively private in the early stages, but their courtship became public knowledge in late 2016. Meghan’s background as an actress and her mixed-race heritage added an additional layer of interest and diversity to the relationship.
Their engagement was announced on November 27, 2017, followed by a highly anticipated wedding ceremony at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018. The wedding was attended by members of the royal family, celebrities, and millions of viewers worldwide.
After their marriage, Meghan and Harry took on official royal duties, representing the monarchy on various occasions. However, in early 2020, they made the decision to step back as senior members of the British royal family. This move, commonly referred to as “Megxit,” was motivated by their desire for a more independent life and a desire to pursue their own philanthropic and business ventures.
Following their decision to step back, Meghan and Harry relocated to North America, first residing in Canada and later settling in California, United States. They established a non-profit organization called Archewell, which focuses on charitable endeavors and social impact projects. They have also ventured into media production, signing a multi-year deal with Netflix to create documentaries, docuseries, feature films, scripted television shows, and children’s programming.
In early 2021, Meghan and Harry made headlines with their interview with Oprah Winfrey. In the interview, they discussed their experiences within the royal family, including allegations of racism and lack of support. The interview generated widespread media attention and sparked discussions about race, mental health, and the role of the monarchy.
Meghan and Harry welcomed their first child, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, in May 2019. They announced in February 2021 that they were expecting their second child, a daughter, who was born on June 4, 2021, and named Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
