Meghan Markle & Prince Harry enjoy anniversary double date

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry marked their sixth wedding anniversary with a night out in Montecito, California.

MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY CELEBRATE

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, fresh from their successful trip to Nigeria, enjoyed an evening at Lucky’s, a favourite local steakhouse.

Joining them were Paramount Pictures CEO Brian Robbins and his wife, Tracey, according to Page Six.

The foursome dined at the upscale eatery on Saturday, the day before Meghan and Harry’s official anniversary.

Lucky’s has become a go-to spot for the couple since they relocated to Montecito in 2020.

MEGHAN MARKLE’S FRIENDSHIPS

Oprah Winfrey, their close friend and neighbour, reportedly recommended the restaurant to them.

An onlooker captured a photo of the group deep in conversation, sharing a bottle of red wine.

They were also joined by an unidentified man, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The sighting follows their joint appearance at the Bob Marley: One Love premiere in Jamaica this January.

This hinted at a growing friendship.

Tracy Robbins, a fashion designer, seems to be quite close to Meghan.

MEGHAN MARKLE ENJOYING THE MOMENT

Last month, she was one of the first to receive Meghan’s new American Riviera Orchard strawberry jam.

This friendship appears to have blossomed recently, as their public outings suggest.

While it’s unclear if Meghan and Harry did something just for the two of them, they certainly enjoyed their evening with friends.

The pair tied the knot on 19 May 2018, at St. George’s Chapel, according to Daily Mail..

However, they later revealed they secretly exchanged vows a few days prior.

ANNIVERSARY TRADITION

In 2022, a source told People that the couple cherishes meaningful anniversary gifts.

They often opt for traditional presents.

“The first anniversary was paper, and Meghan Markle wrote out the wedding speech and had it framed for him,” the insider shared.

For their second anniversary, “they both gave each other gifts based on ‘cotton.’”

The sixth year of marriage traditionally involves gifts of candy or iron.

Yet, the Sussexes have a history of keeping their celebrations simple.

They typically spend the day with their children, Archie, 5, and Lilibet, 2.

TRIP TO NIGERIA

This year seems no different, despite their recent whirlwind trip to Nigeria.

Earlier this month, Meghan and Harry spent three days in Africa promoting mental health for soldiers.

Meghan Markle, who is 43 per cent Nigerian, found the trip particularly meaningful.

“It was such warm hospitality and it was a really meaningful trip,” the mother of two added.

“It was incredibly memorable and special. That alone is the best souvenir to take with us — all the memories we’ve made.”

Their visit included a charity event, a stop at a military hospital in Kaduna, a panel discussion, and a talk with students at Lightway Academy in Abuja.

THE MONTECITO LIFE

The couple’s dedication to their causes remains unwavering.

For now, the Sussexes seem content with their Montecito life.

Their double date with the Robbins at Lucky’s Steakhouse was a perfect way to celebrate their anniversary.

The evening was filled with laughter, good food, and the warmth of friendship.

LOVE PREVAILS

As Meghan and Harry continue their journey together, their commitment to each other and their causes shines through.

Their anniversary celebrations reflect their love and their desire to make a difference in the world.

Here’s to many more years of happiness for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
