But after a smattering of exciting announcements, babies and weddings, it's business as usual for the UK's most famous family.
Aside from her figure-skimming white dress and tweed blazer designed by pal, Serena Williams, it's Meghan's most recent choice of footwear that's had shoppers in a frenzy.
This is the important reason Meghan Markle always wears navy
Eagle-eyed royal fans noticed that Meghan slipped into a pair of flat shoes for the first time ever (shock horror!) and as always, people were desperate to get their hands on them.
The shoes in question are designed by US brand, Rothy's, and, as reports, have more to them than meets the eye.
The single reason the £109 simple black flats are so coveted is because they're made from recycled bottles.
"Our modern pointed toe flat gives instant polish to any outfit. Wear this classic black with every outfit in your closet. The colour is black with signature blue halo and black outsole. Fits true to size. There is no break-in period with our shoes," reads the product's description.
This is why you need to pay attention to sustainable fashion
The brand was founded by Stephen and Roth who saw a gap in the market for sustainable shoes and they've officially got the royal seal of approval!
