On this occasion, IBTimes Singapore brings you the chronology of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal love story that started in 2016.
July 2017: People magazine reported in July that Prince Harry had purchased a painting from British artist Van Donna for an “important person” back in October 2016.
