The British royals will have another reason to celebrate in 2018! In addition to the new baby Prince William and his wife, Kate, will be expecting in April, Prince Harry will be tying the knot with his girlfriend, American actress Meghan Markle.

The engagement was announced today as Harry and Meghan stood for their first official press photos as an engaged couple.  The pair were engaged earlier this month.  While both were tight-lipped about the details of Harry’s proposal, both admitted that is was “romantic.”  Harry also said that he knew Markle was “the one” from the first time he met her.  The engagement ring also made an appearance and is said to contain a diamond from Botswana— a place of great significance for the couple, according to Kensington Palace’s statement, and two smaller diamonds from the personal collection of Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana.

The wedding is due to take place in the spring and the couple will reside in Harry’s current home, Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.  The engagement was announced by Prince Charles, Harry’s father, and a statement from Meghan Markle’s parents was released later in the day. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been dating since July 2016 and were first introduced as a couple later that year.
