Prince Harry is getting married; Inside the cost of royal weddings

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Prince Harry popped the question while the couple were having a "cosy night" in Nottingham Cottage, the Prince's home at Kensington Palace, roasting chicken.

Markle's engagement ring features diamonds from Diana's collection.

It is set to be a busy spring for the royal family, with the wedding and the arrival of a new child for William and Kate providing light relief from the dour political headlines as Britain negotiates Brexit.

Congratulations are in order to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who announced their engagement on Monday.

A series of introductions to senior members of the royal family began as early as last autumn, when she met Prince Charles for the first time.

And it was an instant "yes" from Ms Markle.

Meghan and Harry, 33, announced their engagement this morning, via a statement from Kensington Palace. It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together'.

"Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family".


The "Suits" actress, wearing a white coat and nude high heels, said she was "so very happy" as she held Harry's hand and showed off her diamond engagement ring.

It described nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers, attempts by reporters and photographers to get into her home and the "bombardment" of almost every friend and loved one in her life.

He said being away allowed them to get to know each other without the usual pressures of royal life. "We were just hit so hard at the beginning with a lot of mistruths". "His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment", the statement from November 2016 read, which confirmed the pair's relationship.

'I'm really happy for them and I hope they'll be happy together and have a great life.' Of the spring wedding date, Roslyn added: 'That will be so nice'. Markle is best known for her role on TV show "Suits" as well as her philanthropic work.

She was born in Los Angeles in 1981. She's been in the TV industry forever.

Markle spoke to Vanity Fair in September about being "in love" with the Prince.

In 2011, she married film producer Trevor Engelson but they divorced two years later.

Like Prince William's wife, Ms Markle will not become a princess in her own right after the marriage. The ring, which was designed by Prince Harry himself, is made with one big stone from Botswana and two smaller diamonds from Princess Diana's personal collection.
