Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are in love and they don't care who knows it. Well, at least Prince Harry doesn't care who knows it, because dude can't help but seriously check out his wife on occasion. (And who can blame him? The Duchess of Sussex is one wildly magnetic woman!) Unlike Kate Middleton and Prince William, who tend to keep their physical affection to a minimum when out in public, Harry and Meghan are all about being touchy-feely and making googly eyes at each other -- and for the duke, sometimes that means taking in a good eyeful of the duchess. 

Not long after Prince Harry started dating Meghan Markle, we began seeing a new side to him -- one that's more measured, mature, and incredibly chivalrous. He always seems to be lovingly checking on Meghan at royal events, and the two are rarely seen walking next to each other without at least one of their body parts touching. And of course it goes without saying that Harry likes what he sees when he lays his eyes on Meghan, as he's never not staring at her "that look" in his eyes. 

Harry always keeps it professional and classy, but there's absolutely no mistaking the fact that he is all about his wife. It's as if every time he looks at Meghan he's seeing her walk down the aisle to meet him at the altar of St. George's chapel. Swoon!

From romantic moments at the royal wedding to sneaky glances during public appearances, here are 30 times Prince Harry was caught checking out Meghan Markle.

  • Oh, Hello

    To be fair, it seems as if the duke and duchess are both checking out each other, but we can't get enough of Harry's loving look at Meghan. 

  • A Quick Glance

    Harry can't stand next to Meghan and not look at her. After all, that is a flattering dress on Meghan, and we're loving the deep emerald color. Harry is obviously a fan, too. 

  • Smitten Kitten

    We see you there, Harry! Meghan is blissfully unaware that her love can't take his eyes off of her, and Harry looks like he does't care who is watching  -- or taking photos for that matter. He only has eyes for his wife. 

  • Cheeky Grin

    Just because he's wearing sunglasses doesn't mean we can't see Harry making eyes at Meghan. The tilt of his head, the way he's holding her hand ... yup, he's looking straight at her here. And can we talk about how much we love when they break royal PDA protocol and hold hands? Because it's the best.

  • Even in a Crowd ...

    Harry can't stop staring. This either right before or right after he laid a big kiss on her during a charity polo event, so it's clear he doesn't care who knows how smitten he is!

  • Flirting

    Hey, who says a guy can't flirt with his wife? We love that Harry always seems so into Meghan. She really seems to be the total package for him -- right down to her soft spot for humanitarian efforts, and her love for Africa. Will they eventually move to the continent? Only time will tell. 

  • Hey There, Pretty Lady ...

    Harry's clearly a fan of Meghan's casual seaside look, and we are too. We love the beachy vibe of this striped dress, the cinched waist, and even the fact that she's showing a little bit of skin with her bare shoulders. 

  • Having a Laugh

    Annnnd checking out Meghan. Harry looks like he's staring directly as Meghan's radiant smile in this photo, and who can blame him? It's completely contagious. 

  • Looking to Get Lei-d

    Is it just us or does Harry always seem amazed that she's his wife?! And please pardon our humor -- we can never resist a good lei pun.

  • Mutual Check-Out

    Prince Harry checking out Meghan Markle checking out Prince Harry. The Duchess of Sussex is obviously just as into her husband as he is into her. If they keep on looking at each other like this, they're going to be in it for the long-haul. 

  • Damn, Harry 

    11

    Get a room! His eyes are all over her here, and it almost seems like we're intruding on a private moment between them. Does anyone else notice the woman on the right leaning away a little bit? Yup, just a little bit uncomfortable. 

  • OK, That's Better

    Keep it PG in public, dude. If you wouldn't do it in front of Queen Elizabeth, then save it for behind closed doors. She may give Harry a little more leeway when it comes to PDAs than Prince William, but even she has her limits. 

  • Checking In ...

    13

    ... And checking her out! Meghan looks pretty pleased with herself here too, and why shouldn't she be? She's happily married to a man who adores her and is her literal Prince Charming. If she wasn't pleased with life, we'd have to wonder if anything could make her happy.

  • Full-On Staring

    Come on, Harry. You've gotta work on being more subtle. Is the back of Meghan's head really that interesting anyway? Obviously every little thing about her is intriguing to Harry!

  • Chivalry -- And Staring -- Are Not Dead

    Harry's got it bad for Meghan -- and it's adorable. His eyes are totally locked onto her, and he's not paying the least bit of attention to his brother, Prince William. They look like they're doing something very official here, dressed up in their uniforms, but Harry just looks happy to be near Meghan.

  • And Who Could Forget This Moment

    Hashtag: Swoon!

    Even after Harry wed Meghan, he couldn't believe she was his wife! It was such a whirlwind day, but we're willing to bet that Harry remembers every magical second of his wedding at Windsor Castle. 

  • Talking or Staring?

    18

    Or both? We imagine these two have a lot of long conversations and look into each other's eyes. Or at least they probably did before baby Archie was born and they were pulled into the new parent fog. 

  • Pocket-Fishing

    Or as it's really known as: A good excuse for Harry to check out Meghan. And to get close to her, and touch her a little. Any excuse when you're stupid happy in love, right? And it's not as though Meghan looks like she minds one bit. 

  • Whatcha Lookin' At, Harry?

    On their first royal tour as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, they made a stop in Sydney, Australia. Is Harry staring at that stuffed animal Meg is holding, or ... something else? Your guess is as good as ours.

  • In a Crowd

    Another one from Sydney, this time in the crowd at the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, watching the Netherlands and USA a compete in the Wheelchair Basketball Gold metal match. Don't ask them the score though, they clearly don't know. 

  • Rain or Shine

    Prince Harry looks like he's checking Meghan Markle out to make sure she stays dry! The couple were visiting Abel Tasman National Park in Wellington, New Zealand, when they got caught in the rain. Not a problem though, they had an umbrella big enough for two.

  • Eye on the Bump

    Early in Meghan's second trimester, she was just barely starting to show, and the proud new dad obviously couldn't tear his eyes away. Ever since Archie was born, he's been an absolutely smitten father, so we're not surprised it started this early in her pregnancy.

  • A Walk in the Woods

    Still in New Zealand, Harry and Meghan might as well be the only people on this Redwoods Tree Walk in Rotorua. Is there anything more magical than a walk in the woods with the one you love? 

  • All About That Bump (Again)

    Meghan was about four months pregnant when they attended the Royal Variety Performance 2018 at The London Palladium in November 2018, and Harry clearly couldn't get enough of his expectant wife. 

  • Christmas Magic

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a joint appearance for Christmas Day church services at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham estate in 2018, but they only had eyes for each other.

    During a quick trip to Morocco, Meghan participated in a Henna ceremony at the Education For All boarding house for girls aged 12 to 18. The goal of the home is to ensure that girls from rural communities have access to secondary education.

  • Just the Two of Them

    In one of their last public appearance before welcoming baby Archie, Harry and Meghan couldn't take their eyes off each other. The Duke of Sussex was giving a speech in London, and he unexpectedly pulled his wife out from the wings to join him on stage. He's got it bad. 

  • She's Still the One

    Even though he's a smitten first-time dad, and obviously adores baby Archie Harrison, Harry is still about Meghan. He doesn't look like he could possibly be any happier, holding his 2-day-old son, and staring at his gorgeous wife. Life is good for this sweet little family.
