Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their wedding day.
Ever since Prince Harry started dating TV star Meghan Markle, everyone had been talking of the fairytale that had begun against all odds.
Scarred by the death of his mother, Prince Harry struggled in the royal limelight for much of his life, and his fears for wife Meghan proved to be the final straw.
Harry, now 35, earned a reputation as a playboy in his youth, seemingly desperate to escape the royal straightjacket.
Having left his wild child ways behind him, the prince appeared to have found peace with Meghan and son Archie, but it proved to be a temporary respite from the forces that he still blames for Diana's death.
Despairing after repeated battles with the intrusive British media, Harry and Meghan said in early January they would give up front-line royal duties.
Harry, who spent 10 years in the British army, serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan, has constantly feuded with the media, which gleefully lapped up his rowdy behaviour as a youngster.
But he rebuilt his reputation through his charity work with wounded veterans and advocacy on mental health, an issue close to his heart.
Harry has said that Diana is always in his thoughts, and he has championed many of her charitable causes, including taking an HIV test to raise awareness.
But he has revealed that for a long time he struggled to cope with his mother's death in a Paris car crash in 1997, and sought professional help a few years ago.
A happier chapter in his life began in July 2016, when he met Meghan Markle, a US television actress, on a blind date set up by a mutual friend. Their transatlantic romance quickly blossomed.
"Losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but also my work as well," Harry said.
He caused outrage in 2005 when photographs of him in a Nazi Afrika Korps fancy dress outfit made front-page news.
That was the year he entered the army, a conventional path for royals and one that he later admitted "was the best escape I've ever had" from the constant public attention.
Harry and Meghan married at Saint George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.
But they were increasingly on the receiving end of negative headlines alleging demanding behaviour from Meghan and a rift with William.
Harry said in October that he and his brother were on "different paths".
Harry and Meghan recently stepped up their war with the media by launching legal action against British tabloid The Mail on Sunday for alleged invasion of privacy over a letter from the duchess to her father.
It came with a stinging statement from Harry about general tabloid coverage.
Asked if Meghan was facing the same media pressures as Diana, Harry replied: "I have a family to protect.
"I will not be bullied into playing a game that killed my mum."
Meghan, wife of Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry, is suing publisher Associated Newspapers over articles its Mail on Sunday newspaper printed last year which included parts of a handwritten letter she had sent to her estranged father, Thomas Markle, in August 2018.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are rarely out of the headlines. This has been the case since they broke royal protocol by holding hands at the Invictus Games during their first public appearance back in 2017. We want to read about them. We want to know what they’re up to. We, as the public, are often infuriated at the royal couple wanting
Thomas Markle described the royal family as "one of the greatest long-living institutions ever," saying that when Meghan married Harry in May 2018 they took an obligation "to be part of the royals and to represent the royals."
