It’s love’s young dream straight out of a fairytale, if you consider being hounded constantly by press and dutifully performing for your countrymen a desirable lifestyle.
First, Piers Morgan won’t shut up about them having sex:

And, as if they can’t catch a break behind closed doors, they’re now under the spotlight for holding hands in public.
Harry and Meghan attended the Invictus Games in Toronto together and celebrated the fantastic resilience of the veterans who took up a paraplegic sporting career after suffering life-changing injuries.
And no one can stop talking about their hand-holding, all because they’ve apparently broken some archaic unwritten royal rule.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reportedly make a conscious effort not to hold hands at official public engagements to maintain professionalism while at work.
The founder of Beaumont Etiquette, Myka Meier told People:
The likely reasoning is more that while travelling on a tour such as the India trip, technically the couple are working representatives of British Monarchy.
The couple are likely to show very little PDA, if any, to remain professional during their designated roles abroad.
There isn’t an official protocol to prevent them from doing so, but power to them, because no one wants to see inter-office romance played out with a game of tonsil tennis across the water cooler.
But off-duty? Let’s give Harry and Meghan a break, shall we?
