When Meghan Markle started dating Prince Harry, her career as an actress seemed to be instantly swapped for a life fulfilling royal duties.

It was rather unexpected...

But Harry seemed to be besotted with his new love interest and it didn't take him long to cement her as his serious girlfriend... including taking her to meet Queen Elizabeth just a few months in!

After a year of dating, Harry and Meghan announced their engagement...

Much to the delight of their fan-base worldwide!

They married in May 2018...

Which made Meghan an official part of the royal family.

It was the most magical of days...

And Meghan was christened with her official title, the Duchess of Sussex.

The couple announced their pregnancy shortly after the wedding...

And Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born in May of 2019.

The British media had something to say about it. Whether she was being branded as a diva, a control-freak, a "monarchy ruiner," and even a bad mother, Meghan received it all.

Even though Meghan bravely put a smile on her face throughout it all...

There's absolutely no doubt that she was struggling.

Meghan and Harry made the bold decision to step down from royal duties a year ago in January 2020.

In a joint statement, the couple said that they wanted "a normal upbringing for their child" and they feel that spending their time between the U.K. and America would be much more appropriate for their family environment.

And the next big royal news followed shortly after.

As on Valentine's Day of this year, the pair announced they were expecting their second child - this time a baby girl.

But now Meghan has made a surprising announcement.

Unlike with Archie, she's not planning on having a baby shower this time around.

A source told Us Weekly, "Meghan doesn't feel a big baby shower with gifts is appropriate right now."

"There is too much strife in the world."

"She and Harry have been so involved with humanitarian issues, they both feel their time and resources can be used for a better purpose."

The source confirmed that rather than gifts, Meghan has plenty of "support."

And, even more importantly ...

"Harry is the ideal partner, taking care of Archie and working to provide for his family."

What do you think about Meg's decision?
