Settle into your seats and grab some hot tea and biscuits because Meghan Markle has just broken her silence on what royal married life is like.
While far from Shakespearian, Markle’s remarks are polite and straightforward: “[Being married] is wonderful,” she told 61-year-old royals stan Sharon Briscoe during a royal visit with Queen Elizabeth. “I’m really enjoying it.” OK, it’s not exactly a soliloquy, but given how royal-starved we’ve been since Meghan and Harry said “I do” back in May, we’ll take it.
Plus, when Briscoe told Meghan to give love to Harry and look after him, Markle added another couple sentences (!) more.
“I will do. That means an awful lot to us,” the royal said. “He’s the best husband ever.” Did you hear that? Best husband ever!
So it might not be the most romantic thing you’ve ever heard—not by a long shot. But is it still super sweet and noteworthy? Abso-freakin’-lutely. While Harry has kept mum about his life as a hubby (not even a one liner like Markle from his camp, c’mon Harry), new details have emerged about how they’ve been spending their time.

When they weren’t individually attending gala dinners or on official royal business with Queen Elizabeth, they spent time together in East Africa for their honeymoon, according to E! News. Yes, the royal couple bypassed Canada, much to the chagrin of those who thought they’d be there, but they did spend time in more than two countries in Africa.
They reportedly kept busy by lying in the sun and going on safaris. “It was the perfect break and blend of their passions,” E!’s source said. “Restorative and the perfect holiday before starting a very busy second half of 2018.”
With a new royal tour on the horizon, some R&R sounds like a smart idea.
