Meghan Markle became a member of the British Royal Family when she married Prince Harry back in May 2018. Since then, she has been under public scrutiny for basically her every move. To say that things have been hard for her would be an understatement. She is currently battling the British tabloids after suing them for breaching her privacy. We have to say, we applaud her strength and courage for doing what she believes is right and we are so incredibly happy for the beautiful family of three.
