Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

The stunning wedding of Harry and Meghan was watched around the world by billions of royal fans, but it was actually the second time Meghan had walked down the aisle.

She was previously married to actor and producer Trevor Engelson – they dated for seven years before marrying in 2011, but filed for divorce in 2013.

Km is also famous for having one of the shortest marriages in history, after her marriage to sports star Kris Humphries lasted just 72 days.

While Kim was still technically married to Kris, she officially began dating Kanye, who she had been friends with for years. They were engaged in 2013 and married in an extravagant ceremony in Florence, Italy in 2014.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson

They tied the knot in 1978 and when Tom was just 21, Samantha gave birth to the couple’s son Colin Hanks. In 1982 they had a daughter, Elizabeth Hanks. So when Tom and Rita first crossed paths, forming a romance wasn’t really on the agenda.

Just four years later in 1985, Tom and Rita were reunited on the set of the comedy film Volunteers. Despite the fact that he was married at the time, the connection between Tom and Rita was too powerful to deny and finalised his divorce from Samantha in 1987. Just a year later in 1988, Tom and Rita were married and they’e been together ever since.
