Prince Harry has been the sweetheart of the Royal Family for years. The fact that he was a bachelor just added to the intrigue. In fact, in 2013, he was even named by “Town & Country” as the world’s most eligible bachelor.
It looks like that title will have to move on to someone else now, though. Prince Harry is now engaged! And you probably recognize his fiancee.
Prince Harry’s fiancee is the American actress Meghan Markle. She is most well-known for her role as Rachel Zane in the show “Suits.”
Rumors that the pair were dating first began just over a year ago. Apparently, they were introduced by a mutual friend. There are strict rules and social expectations for the Royal Family, so they weren’t often seen together.
Their engagement was first announced on the Kensington Palace Twitter account. Soon after the announcement, they appeared together for the press.
This press call was only the second time that the two had appeared together in public. The first was in September for the Invictus Games. At the Games, they were accompanied by Markle’s mother.
Apparently, Prince Harry proposed on a simple evening while they were roasting chicken. Harry wanted to be able to catch her by surprise—and it seems that he did. Check out this sweet video of the two talking about the evening.
It looks like we have another royal wedding to look forward to. They are planning on getting married in the Spring of 2018.
