Rumors that the couple got engaged were rife over the last few days, prompting the Royal family to do something they very rarely do. They issued a statement, saying that they would “not give a running commentary on Harry’s love life.”

However, now Clarence House has confirmed the engagement in a statement, which read: “His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle.”

The wedding is set for Spring 2018. Further details are yet to be announced. After they are married, the couple will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace. They are expected to be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, according to the British news media.

Fifth in line for the throne, Prince Harry’s engagement with the American Meghan Markle took place in London earlier this month. The 33-year-old Prince and the 36-year-old actress, who became famous after starring in legal drama series Suits, shared the news with both of their families. Prince Harry asked for and received Ms Markle’s parents permission to marry their daughter.

Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, Meghan’s parents, wished the couple “a lifetime of happiness” in their statement. They said: “We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents.

“We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.”

His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales and his future wife are set to do a photo shoot at Kensington Palace to announce the engagement.

They are also going to do an interview which will be televised in the UK this evening, November 27.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, are “very excited” for the news, according to the Kensington Palace Twitter account.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh also expressed their joy and sent the couple their best wishes.

Harry and Meghan met in 2016 through mutual friends. They have been in a relationship for over a year now, making their first public appearance together in September in Toronto at the Invictus Games, a Paralympic-style competition for wounded or sick members of the military and veterans. The couple was pictured holding hands, something that is frowned upon for members of the Royal Family.

Looks like next spring is going to be a very busy period for the British Royal Family with both a Royal wedding and the arrival of the newest member of the Royal family, Prince William and Kate’s third child, set to happen at around the same time. We wish both couples the best of luck!
