Nothing like a royal engagement announcement to start off the new week. Britain'ss Prince Harry and American actor Meghan Markle are engaged.
"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 royal household announced in a public statement on Twitter.
It is said that Harry designed the ring himself as a tribute to his late mother. While we don't know what the ring will look like, we get the sense that it will be romantic and simple.
It is said that the wedding will take place in summer 2018 and the duo will make their first engagement appearance today on television.
His brother William and wife Kate wished them well too.
"We are very excited for Harry and Meghan. It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together," they said.
I'm sure there will be lots more to report on soon!
