Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated two years of marriage on May 19. However, some royal fans are upset because the royal family seemed to have snubbed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's special day.
According Extra, the royals marked the Sussex's first year together with pictures and greetings in 2019. This year, there was no mention of the couple's special day at all and fans didn't fail to notice the oversight.
A post from a royal follower on Twitter indicated that not one of the royal family's social media accounts wished Prince Harry and Meghan a "Happy Anniversary!" Another said that the royal family has no heart for ignoring that it was Prince Harry and Meghan's second anniversary.
Other royal fans, however, said that this was nothing to be mad about since the royals also didn't greet Prince William and Kate for their ninth wedding anniversary in April. Speculations are that the Queen likely feels that posting old but lavish wedding photos would be in bad taste because of the global crisis so it follows that fans wouldn't find these wedding greetings in the royal family social media accounts.
Meanwhile, whether their family members remembered their anniversary or not, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex marked their second year by celebrating with Mexican food and margaritas, according to Harper's Bazaar. Prince Harry and Meghan also took calls on Zoom from friends and family for the whole day.
A source said that the couple reminisced about their beautiful and magical day at St. George Palace on May 19, 2018. Prince Harry and Meghan also gifted each other with cotton-based presents as based on tradition, the second year of marriage is symbolized with cotton.
These days, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been spending their time making Zoom calls, like the rest of the royal family, as gatherings and events are still impossible to do due to the coronavirus. Prince Harry and Meghan have been busy touching base with different charities as they plan to launch their new foundation, Archewell, to replace the Sussex Royal foundation.
However, since the public health crisis is looming, Prince Harry and Meghan won't be activating Archewell until the fall season. A source said that beyond their work, the most important thing from the Sussexes right now is to spend time with their growing one-year-old son and celebrate his milestones.
