Prince Harry & Meghan to have a ‘quiet day as a family’ for their anniversary

Royal wedding

I can keep talking about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s 2018 wedding until the cows come home. I love talking about royal weddings! And Harry and Meghan’s 2018 wedding left people SHOOK. I think even the royal family was surprised by the outpouring of support for “the spare” and his American bride on that day. I think H&M’s popularity in those first six months of marriage was a big reason why the smear campaign began in earnest that autumn. Anyway, yesterday I posted tons of photos from the wedding day – go here to see. I’m including more in this post. Something we don’t talk about enough is how emotional Harry was throughout the wedding. He was so nervous before Meghan walked down the aisle, and then he was barely able to keep his cool throughout the ceremony.

So what are Harry and Meghan’s plans for their anniversary, which they’re celebrating in lockdown in LA? A predictably quiet day. A family source told Town & Country that H&M will “be spending a quiet day as a family.” There is also no expectation that the Sussexes will release any new videos, photos or messages today, unlike the video for Archie’s first birthday two weeks ago. Again, I have to think that before the pandemic, Meghan and Harry probably intended to have already launched a new Instagram account, and they probably would have used their IG and their anniversary to highlight charities or something. My wish for their quiet anniversary: go ahead and launch the new Insta!!! PLEASE.

What else? Tatler had a gallery of photos inside Tyler Perry’s LA home, where H&M are allegedly staying rent-free, much to the chagrin of British reporters. They keep bringing up the fact that Harry and Meghan aren’t paying anything like… that’s something unusual for royals. I would ask how many freebies Will & Kate have gotten in the past decade, because they’ve gotten A LOT.

And finally, some photos from the Sussexes’ wedding day which are rarely seen:

    Happy Anniversary!!

  2. Lonnie tinks says:

    Happy Anniversary! Is it terrible to say that I am still disappointed with that wedding dress two years later?

    • Em says:

      Me too. But I feel she didn’t want to do too much. I loved the veil and the reception dress too though.

  3. Nancy says:

    I love her dress so much, plus the tiara!!! Arghhhh.

    • truthSF says:

      Same! I love the whole look, from head to toe! Plus, she looked so comfortable throughout the 2 hour ceremony, which was the whole point!!

    I can’t imagine them staying at a house like that. I mean, just talking from personal perspective, I’d always rent a place that at least has some similarity to my own style. I know it’s free and massive and all, but still this house would depress me, apart from the kids room. That seems cosy.

    • Ali says:

      How do you know it’s free??

    • Erinn says:

      I’d be all over that bathroom. But the ‘motivational quote’ in the kitchen got me. SO cheesy. Although, it could have been added just to stage the photos, so who knows.

      I like parts of the house. But it’s very… I don’t know. It just doesn’t seem lived in, in a way. And maybe this is due to the photography, but it just seems so dark and kind of gloomy?

      • lemonylips says:

        that dinning room, with those chairs and what looks like a fresco…. it really hurt my eyes. And yeah, sign was probably staged but I had the same reaction. Just looks gloomy to me too.

      • L4frimaire says:

        Most of us will never be in a house like that so if given the opportunity to stay there, we would, regardless of decor. It’s temporary and not their permanent home. I’m sure Frogmore is very much to their taste. Now that, I’d love to see inside of.

    • Ainsley7 says:

      No one knows what the Sussexes finances really are. They might not have that much in the bank right now (as opposed to investments and such). By their own admission, Charles is still funding them for the time being. He’s paying at least part of their security and their rent for Frogmore. Independence from Charles is probably more important to them than where they live right now.

      • GuestWho says:

        Where was that admission? I missed it. I understand the security costs, but I missed anyone saying that he was paying for Frogmore (which will go down in history as the worst wedding present ever).

    • MsIam says:

      As opposed to one of those gloomy castles with all of that overdone gilt and flicked wallpaper or damask or whatever it is? Well to each his own I guess. I think Tyler’s house is gorgeous and hardly dark, it has floor to ceiling windows.

    • notasugarhere says:

      They may have chosen it for the secured location and in-house security team, not for the styling.

    • Olenna says:

      This thread is about the couple’s anniversary. There’s an older one that covered the Perry house. A “happy anniversary” would have been more fitting, or maybe just no comment at all if one has nothing positive to say about the event.

      • Erinn says:

        Oh come onnnn. This is a gossip site. Unless people are going to stop joking around or judging things on EVERY article (not just Sussex ones), lets not take things so seriously. I presume you wished the Cambridge’s a happy anniversary on the thread about their wedding and didn’t judge them at all?

        I could see if we were sitting here bitching about Meghan and Harry, but christ allmighty, I don’t think Tyler Perry’s inanimate house needs a defender.

        I mean, if the house was truly off limits or unrelated to the thread, I’m quite sure Kaiser wouldn’t have posted a link to the photos.

    • L4frimaire says:

      @lemonlips, We just had a story yesterday that says they are currently paying $18k a month on Frogmore, but they are living for free at Tyler Perry’s? How does that make sense? Was this confirmed by anyone? They certainly aren’t going to tell us, whatever the arrangements are. As for the decor, it is what it is, and photos was from when Perry actually lived there. May be different, especially if there are plans to sell it.The house ticked a lot boxes in terms of privacy, work space,security etc.It probably has a studio and office space, and staff quarters, location.

      • L4frimaire says:

        Also, further down thread someone pointed out that most of those photos are from Perry’s former Atlanta mansion, not the house in LA. Lazy journalism.

      • lemonylips says:

        really people can’t i say i dislike the house? and the article says allegedly staying rent free…. so i don’t get the problem. also i was paraphrasing it saying i know…. that’s how i talk. thanks @erinn for bringing the fun chill as always

      • Ed says:

        No again

    • Ed says:

      I will say no

  5. S808 says:

    Happy Anniversary to the Sussexes! I’m an outsider and it feels like they’ve been married for at least 5 years, not only 2! I hope Archie gave them both big kisses!

  6. Harla says:

    Gosh that was such a lovely wedding! So much love and joy, I teared up several times while watching it. I hope the Sussex’s have a great day together with their beautiful baby and I wish them many, many joy filled years together!

  7. Becks1 says:

    Harry’s emotions during that ceremony…..he adores her so much and was so happy.

  8. RoyalBlue says:

    she looks like a princess! i loved both her and Harry outfit choices.

    most diverse royal wedding in british history. just look at the adorable flower girls.

  9. vanna says:

    Omid’s photo of the princes from above in the stairway could be interpreted as a subtle diss of Willileaks hairline. Of course only if one is ungenereous and tained as me.

    • mer says:

      As compared to Harry’s hairline. Dude is almost as bald as William, he just hasn’t accepted it yet.

      • Jaded says:

        And how would you know he “hasn’t accepted it yet”? Don’t you think he’d be doing the hair plugs and Rogaine treatments if he hadn’t? Honestly….(rolls eyes)

  10. Noki says:

    Remembering their engagement interview,they were so happy and excited for their future and naive. Harry must be mortified by his family.

    • Ginger says:

      I agree. Plus she had the Commonwealth flowers sewn into her veil which shows how excited she was to work for the RF. It’s very disheartening.

  11. Charfromdarock says:

    That house does look dreary.

    Oh well, happy anniversary to them wherever they are residing at the moment.

  12. 10KTurtle says:

    So are we all back to believing the “family source” again now? I thought the latest legal thing was that absolutely nobody from the Sussex camp was ever talking to the press again? It certainly sounds plausible that anyone would chill out at home for an anniversary under quarantine, I’m just confused why this is being reported as fact.
    I love all the green-ness of these wedding photos. I don’t think I appreciated it the first time I saw these.

    • Love says:

      They are not talking to the TABLOID press. Maybe look up who they specifically addressed in their letters about “0 tolerance”. Also, if this was the Sun reporting, then I’d be dubious. Town & Country seem to report facts, without any colourful commentary

      Meghan had T&C at her last engagement too!

      • 10KTurtle says:

        Ah, thank you. I didn’t catch that it was only for specific outlets. Also, no thanks for my first google result on that being Piers Morgan- UGH I have zero tolerance for him too!

      • Ed says:

        Not at all

  13. Pearl Grey says:

    Their wedding was unforgettable. Harry’s emotions were so touching and the most seen from any royal husband, Meghan’s giddy smiles at Harry’s cheeky glances, Doria watching her daughter so proudly. The looks they gave each other all throughout the ceremony, never have we seen a royal couple show so much affection on their wedding day. It was like they were the only two people there. Her beautiful veil and tiara, the simplicity of her crisp, white gown and iconic minimal makeup look was pure bridal elegance and showed off her natural beauty. The speeches were amazing and the choir took us to church. The diverse crowds were phenomenal from the chapel all the way to the Long Walk, and the photos are stunning, especially the overhead shot of the two in the carriage holding hands. Even the weather was on their side! It was the best and most engaging royal wedding I have watched, with a unifying and delightfully informal touch. Happy 2 year anniversary! I hope they have a lovely day today.

  14. sipnbubbly says:

    Some of those photos on Tatler’s website are of his former Atlanta home in Buckhead. Can these people not get anything right?

    • NCDancer says:

      Yeah, that first photo from the terrace is so obviously not LA.

      • MsIam says:

        Is that good ole Georgia pine in the distance? It does seem suspiciously green for LA.

      • L4frimaire says:

        Thanks for pointing this out. Yeah most of those shots are from the Atlanta house, including the living room. That is definitely not the LA skyline and too many green trees.

    • MsIam says:

      Exactly. There are videos on youtube showing a tour of his Atlanta home and they use some of the exact same shots. So unless he decorated both houses identically, it’s hard to tell which is which. Plus some of the pictures are old, no telling how the house looks now.

  15. Ginger says:

    I wonder if Harry and Meghan will get another Instagram or just release stuff through charities social media. I miss their Instagram.

    • 10KTurtle says:

      I’m selfishly hoping they do a public Twitter account instead. I don’t have any social media accounts, and Instagram has recently changed to where you can only see a small version of a picture with a post but you can’t click on it to read any text with it or enlarge the picture without having your own account.

  16. BUBS says:

    Happy Anniversary Harry and Megs. We love you guys dearly and are very excited about your future. We’re glad you’ve held on to each other, despite everything thrown your way. Two down…forever ahead. God bless you both.
    PS: Yes, people were (and still are) definitely threatened by their popularity…but who God has blessed, no man can curse!!!

  17. Ruby_Woo says:

    Tatler, lol? For a society magazine, they sure are bothered about a ‘social climber’. Bet they never dreamed of having the indignity of reviewing a Black man’s house.

    Guess they know where the money is since sales are down and its certainly not anyone on their Social Power List…

    • notasugarhere says:

      The Tatler editor is a Uni friend of W&K, that’s why.

    • SomeChick says:

      Tatler is just a tabloid that thinks it’s posh.

      IDK where the Tyler Perry rumors originated, or why he would need to charge them rent for a home he’s not using. If any of that is true! I thought it was supposed to be Malibu, now it’s Beverly Hills… but it’s super not cool to reveal their location in any case. And people wonder why they need security!

      I’m sure they will have a lovely anniversary as a family, wherever they may be. Perhaps Meghan will roast one of her famous chickens! <3

  18. Sofia says:

    Happy anniversary! Hope these two have a quiet day of just being with each other. We all know it’s been a stressful 2 years so far

  19. Mika says:

    It’s only been TWO YEARS?!?!?!

  20. notasugarhere says:

    Love how their charities are wishing them happy anniversary on SM. Mayhew, Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, etc.

  21. Linda says:

    Happy Wedding Anniversary to Meghan and Harry.

  22. Chrissyms says:

    Join the club. Everyone is having quiet anniversaries at home with their families. If they are not Front Line workers that is. Happy Anniversary. It really was a beautiful wedding. The dress is really growing on me. Very Classic.

  23. L4frimaire says:

    Wishing them a lifetimes of happy anniversary’s. We want another baby Sussex!

  24. summertime says:

    My husband and I got married the same as them. My bridal party and i got up and had breakfast and watched the wedding and fawned all over Megs all morning while getting ready. I love the fact that we share a wedding day with them!

  25. Harper says:

    Happy Anniversary Harry & Meghan! Two years — woo hoo!

    Where are the official greetings from the Cambridges wishing them a happy anniversary?

    Can’t find them anywhere on their Insta or Twitter!

    • Harla says:

      @Harper, I just checked Instagram and the royal family didn’t say anything about the Cambridge’s anniversary either.

  26. Awkward symphony says:

    Alot of Beckys and karens are losing it on Twitter! The idiots are having a bad day as they never expected them to be this united and away from toxicity.

    Happy anniversary to the Sussexs. I wonder if we’ll get sussex baby no.2 soon😉

  27. MerryGirl says:

    Happy Anniversary Harry & Meghan….may the sun always shine on you and your marriage.

    • L4frimaire says:

      Hope they’re hanging out poolside sipping elderflower cocktails and eating avocados.
