Few political families have captured the public's fascination quite like the members of the House of Windsor, the British royal family. This collection of articles compiles The New York Times's coverage of three of the best-known couples in modern history: Harry and Meghan, William and Kate, and Charles and Diana. Through these pieces, readers can witness firsthand the most publicized moments of each couple's story, including engagements, weddings, childbirth, and, in the case of Charles and Diana, a quite public divorce. Furthermore, articles on Diana's untimely, tragic death and Meghan Markle's activism and career as an actor make this an essential guide to the royal family's affairs.
