Prince Harry Meghan engagement
It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for.

Been wondering whether Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are engaged? You can finally put your over-worked mind at ease. It has today been confirmed that Prince Harry has indeed put a ring on it and the wedding will take place in Spring 2018! Until then, the couple will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

The announcement took place at 10 am today by The Prince Of Wales via the Clarence House official Twitter account.

Shortly after, the Kensington Palace Twitter account provided more details including the engagement took place earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed The Queen and other close members of the Royal Family. And most importantly, the wedding will take place in Spring!

The Queen,The Duke of Edinburgh Duke and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also tweeted describing their excitement and wishing the couple every happiness.

And from Meghan Markle’s family? Meghan’s parents also released a statement describing their daughter as a kind and loving person who shares the same qualities as Harry.

The 36-year-old Suits actress from LA and our favourite ginger-haired member of the royal family have been dating since 2016 setting tongues wagging whether she is finally the one.

Rumours really started to spiral when Meghan reportedly wrapped filming for TV programme Suits recently. She also started shipping over items from Toronto, Canada, where she lived while filming the show. The rumours can finally be put to bed because they have been founded. Meghan has a huge sparkler to prove it.

The pair reportedly met through Fashion designer Misha Nonoo who previously was married to Alexander Gilkes, an Eton pupil and friend of Harry’s.

33-year-old Harry previously dated ladies Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas, with the public pondering whether they’d steal Harry’s heart, but in the end Meghan was the one to capture his attention. She certainly captured everyone else’s with her charitable nature, feminist values and cool but casual fashion sense and we don’t think Meghan has a bad deal either!

Of course Harry isn’t the only one with past relationships, and Meghan has actually been married before to Trevor Engelson which ended in 2013.

So Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Engaged. But What Will Their Wedding Be Like?

Her wedding to Harry is likely to be a much more grand affair than her last, which was celebrated on a beach in Jamaica with beach games and dips in the sea. It is unlikely HRH Queen Elizabeth II is going to be hitting the beach and eating from a BBQ to watch her grandson get wed, so we’re expecting a more traditional affair in London.

Will We Get A Day Off For The Wedding?

We’re thinking it’s unlikely. While we had an extra bank holiday to celebrate William and Kate’s nuptials, he is future King of England and Harry is fifth in line to the throne (once the Duchess of Cambridge gives birth to child number three). Plus, he’s pretty low-key for a Prince.

Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry get married in Westminster Abbey?

To be quite honest we don’t really know, but common sense tells us not. Not only is Harry not future King, he seems to have a more no-nonsense approach to things, which his older brother William cannot enjoy given his commitments to the royal family. Being very unlikely to ever take the throne, Harry no doubt has less pressures. Princess Diana and Charles did not wed there anyway – they were married at St. Paul’s Cathedral – so it is certainly not expected.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will appear this afternoon for a photo call and a broadcast interview will take place this evening – UK time.
