Since the Duke of Sussex turns 34 this week (ugh, such a Virgo), we've decided to take a look back at some of the most glorious moments throughout the royal's life B.M.M. (before Meghan Markle)—from his bromance with Barack Obama to that one time in 1997 when he posed with the Spice Girls. I'm not going to say he's gotten significantly hotter as he's aged, but I'm not not going to say that either. Decide for yourself, ahead.
