There's nothing better than a big huge smile from our dear Prince Harry, right? Ever since his marriage to Meghan Markle back in May 2018, Harry has been exuding happiness and joy, and yes, we think it's all because of his wife. Of course, there were Internet naysayers declaring that this marriage would never last, but we think Harry's attitude in what's been nearly a year has done nothing but prove them wrong. In the past, Harry has always been known as the fun-loving, somewhat carefree royal, and once Meghan appeared on the scene, all of those traits have been heightened. Now, we're not saying that the Duke of Sussex hasn't changed since his union with Meghan ... because he has.

Most (if not, all) of the changes that have happened to Harry have been for the better, and we could argue that Harry's evolution from reckless, but lovable party boy to responsible and loving husband has made him all the more happy. 

Yes, Harry is extremely protective when it comes to shielding Meghan from all of the negative attention they've been receiving, but even that goes to show how far this prince will go to keep this new life he has. Since Harry met and married Meghan, he's blossomed into the royal man he was always supposed to be, and the evidence is pretty glaring. It's not even just the goofy grin on his face, but it's how he interacts with royal fans and even other members of the royal family that proves just how content he is thanks to his wife. It's clear -- Harry has been on the rise since marrying Meghan, and here are the 20 signs that prove it.

  • He Found His Soulmate

    It's rumored that Meghan has been a good influence on Harry and that she's even encouraged him to give up smoking. The duchess is all about health and holistic living, so we're sure she didn't approve of Harry's occasional cigarette habit. A healthy prince is a happy prince!

    Meghan's California cool-girl attitude means all-natural products and eating clean, which wasn't part of Harry's life before he met his now-wife. Harry traded in nights at the club for homemade dinners, and if you ask us, it was a lifestyle upgrade for sure.

    But in all honesty, it's probably both.

    Harry's not quite the photographer and artist that Kate Middleton is, but he's certainly been dabbling with his creativity. The Internet just about freaked when Kensington Royal posted this photo Harry had taken of Meghan, and now that the two have their own Instagram account, this probably won't be the last photo we see from the prince.

  • He & Meghan Share Common Ground

    According to Vanity Fair, Harry recently told a friend, "I still can’t believe my luck,"and we think that just about sums it up. They might be reaching their one-year wedding anniversary soon, but the honeymoon stage might never end with these two. It certainly won't for Harry!
