Everyone seems to be overjoyed by the announcement. On behalf of Meghan’s parents, Kensington Palace released a statement saying:

“We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind, loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy to us as parents. We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.”

The couple has been secretly engaged since the beginning of November, and plan to have the wedding in the early spring of 2018. Markle showed reporters her massive ring, displaying the gorgeous diamond saying that she is “so very happy”.

The ring was designed by Harry himself, with a large diamond from Botswana and two smaller ones from his mother’s , Princess Diana, personal collection.

Botswana has a deeper meaning to them, the couple had spent much of the last year and a half in the African country. After the wedding, the couple will be living in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace, where the prince currently lives.

Harry’s grandparents were thrilled as well, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip said they are “delighted and wish them every happiness”. Harry’s

brother, Prince William and his wife Catherine extended their delight to the newly engaged couple.

Shortly after the announcement, they released a statement saying “We are very excited for Harry and Meghan. It has been wonderful to get to know her and to see how happy she and Harry make each other”.

In a recent interview, Meghan Markle had said the couple had met in July of 2016, in which they were introduced through mutual friends. Markle is best known for her TV show, “Suits” and can be seen on many other American TV shows.

Earlier this year, the actress told Vanity Fair “We’re two people who are happy and in love”. Throughout all of this, Meghan has been in the spotlight since she and Harry were seen together, but she was aware of the popularity that comes with dating a prince. She said that there are many challenges but she’ll be just fine with her boyfriends support.
