As 2017 comes to a close there's definitely one person that this year belongs to and that's the soon-to-be princess, Meghan Markle. Hello Magazine, has officially crowned Markle as their Woman of the Year for 2017.
Let's take some time to reflect on Markle's astonishing transformation.
From acting to getting engaged to her soon-to-be husband Prince Harry, Markle has had quite the fairy tale.
Markle, 36, won the heart of Prince Harry back in November 2016 when the two first started dating. While the couple chose to keep things under the radar at first, their subtle messages gave it away that they were an official item.
It's safe to say that Markle has also managed to win over the world as well as the Queen. The Queen herself has decided to break protocol and invite the bride-to-be over for Christmas at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk. This is the first time a non-married partner will attend an annual gathering.
As if it wasn't enough to know that the two were dating, things hit a whirlwind when everyone found out that Markle and Harry were officially engaged. On Nov. 27, 2017, Clarence House took to Twitter to announce Markle and Harry's engagement, which by the way the royal family and Markle's family approved.
The Kensington Palace also tweeted a response from Markle's parents, check out the tweet to the left.

Everyone couldn't wait to find out when the prince and the soon-to-be princess would wed, well the date has finally been the set. The two will wed on May 19, 2018. Markle and Harry will tie the knot at the St. George's Chapel at the Windsor Castle.
As 2018 approaches it's safe to say that everyone will be looking forward to May just for the wedding! Questions have already started to build up, who will be the lucky designer to design Markle's dress and what cake will the two nibble on their big day?
