The couple were married on May 19 2018 at Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel. Hundreds of millions of people watched the nuptials live from all around the world.
Finding Freedom, a new book about Meghan and Harry’s exit as senior royals earlier this year, described how the couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary in May 2019.
The authors, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, wrote: “On the anniversary of their first year of marriage, Harry and Meghan enjoyed a traditional Sunday lunch with Doria, her last meal before travelling back to LA.
“Her five weeks at Frogmore had flown by, but she had to get back to work.”
The anniversary came shortly after the birth of Meghan and Harry’s son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, on 6 May.
Archie was also reportedly present during Harry and Meghan’s anniversary.
To celebrate the occasion Harry gifted Meghan an eternity ring.
Mr Scobie and Ms Durand explained: “Harry also surprised his wife of one year with a ring that he had created with the jeweller to the stars Lorraine Schwartz, a favourite of Meghan’s.”
The couple also marked the occasion with a post on their official ‘Sussex Royal’ Instagram account.

They said: “Thank you for all of the love and support from so many of you around the world.
“Each of you made this day even more meaningful.”
The warm words were accompanied by some never before published photographs of their wedding.
In January Meghan and Harry caused an international sensation by announcing they planned to step down as senior members of the royal family.
The couple pledged to become financially independent and said they would split their time between the UK and North America.
After discussions with other senior royals they agreed to stop using their HRH titles and to drop their ‘Sussex Royal’ brand.
After a brief stay in Canada the Duke and Duchess moved to Meghan’s home state of California.
Initially they stayed in a borrow mansion in Los Angeles, where they celebrated their second wedding anniversary this May.
They arrived in the city shortly before it was placed into lockdown to contain the spread of Covid-19.
During the lockdown both Meghan and Harry were spotted delivering food parcels to vulnerable LA residents.
Recently the Duke and Duchess moved into a new £11.2m home north of Los Angeles.
The lavish property comes complete with a tennis court, children’s cottage and swimming pool.
In total it has nine bedrooms and no fewer than 18 bathrooms.
Mr Scobie and Ms Durand claim they spoke to sources very close to Meghan and Harry for their book though both royals deny any personal involvement.
