The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might have the Earth crashing on one end. But they will never forget prioritizing their family above all, despite everything that is happening. The closely knitted family of four is closely attached to each other and tries to squeeze in the maximum quality time with family as possible. This time around too, with a complete ruckus created over the internet regarding their fallout, Prince Harry’s court cases, the two have decided to make the forthcoming independence day an unforgettable one. 

As reported by The Mirror, the couple is apparently preparing for a blast on the 4th of July, 2023, which is American independence day. The occasion is said to be closely associated with the pair as well. Not only as mere Americans, but the Duke and the Duchess have a special connection to this day. According to certain excerpts in the Duke’s memoir, Spare stated that they had gone on dates on the very same day earlier in the past.

Not only do they have only romantic nostalgia for the date, but they have been celebrating the same in various different styles. Last summer, the couple spent the day with Markle’s pal Heather Dork. Together, they took delight in the Jackson Hole Valley on July 4th. In another instance, a year before the infamous Megxit, Meghan Markle made a casual appearance on the Independence Day of 2019 in a Wimbledon match.
