Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged! That’s the news we gleefully woke up to this morning. The pair have made it official and the royal wedding is to happen this spring. The news was announced by Prince Charles from Clarence House. The official statement read as follows:
His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle. The wedding will take place in Spring 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.
A few hours post-announcement the loved up couple had an official press call at Kensington Palace where we had our first glimpse of the ring. It was designed by Prince Harry and featured three diamonds: one centre stone from Botswana and two flanking it from Princess Diana’s personal collection.
Another little personal detail of Meghan’s we spied at the couple’s photo call and loved? The earrings she wore were from Birks, a wonderful nod to her adopted Canadian homeland. The delicate earrings from the Plaisirs de Birks collection featured white opals set in 18K gold.
