No Monday blues here – we are beyond excited to hear the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially engaged!
There has been speculation of an engagement for quite a few months now, but the news was finally confirmed in a statement by Clarence House, the official residence of Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles.
“His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle,” the statement began.
“The wedding will take place in Spring 2018. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course.
“His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month.
“Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents.
“The couple will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.”
The engagement comes a year after Prince Harry officially confirmed he was dating the American Suits actress.
Prince Harry’s older brother, Prince William and wife Kate Middleton – i.e. the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – were also quick to congratulate the happy couple on their news.
And although they’ve never been photographed together, they have reportedly hung out several times – the wedding of Kate’s younger sister Pippa Middleton being just one of them.
“We are very excited for Harry and Meghan,” reads a Tweet from Prince William and Kate Middleton, via Kensington Palace.
“It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together.”
Aww! Watch this space for more engagement and royal wedding news as and when we get it!
Congratulations Prince Harry and Meghan!
