Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged to be married

After plenty of rumours were circulating that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would tie the knot soon, their engagement has now been confirmed by his father Charles, The Prince of Wales.

Some sources said that Prince Harry had sought his grandma's (aka the Queen) approval for the wedding before the engagement.

 Clarence House said:

"The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle."

36-year-old Megan is a divorcee having previously been married to Trever Engelson. The marriage ended in 2013. She played the role of Rachel Zane in the legal drama Suits.

Apparently Harry popped the question while the couple were holidaying in Africa this year. Prince Harry reportedly designed the engagement ring using a centre diamond from Botswana, and with two outer diamonds coming from Princess Diana’s engagement ring.

All that is know so far is that the wedding will happen next spring, and there will be a TV announcement later this evening with further details.

I'm just looking forward to marking the date in my calendars for an extra day off work in the new year!
