It’s finally happened! It looks like American actress Meghan Markle is on her way to officially joining the British royal family. Today, November 27, Prince Harry announced their engagement!
‘His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle. The wedding is set to take place in Spring of 2018. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course. His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty the Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents. The couple will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace,’ the official announcement read.
As soon as the news went public, Harry’s older brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton made sure to send their congratulatory messages to the happy couple.
‘We’re excited for Harry and Meghan. It’s been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together.’
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip expressed how happy they are for the pair as well.
Finally, Markle’s parents Thomas and Doria also expressed how excited they are for their daughter and the Prince.
‘Our daughter’s 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 excited about their future together,’ they added.
Sadly for the engaged couple, their announcement wasn’t followed by positive and congratulatory message only.
Soon after, Meghan was attacked on social media by many racist comments.
But Harry made sure to protect his love and issued a statement blasting all of those cyberbullying the beautiful actress.
Congratulations Harry and Meghan!
