Royal family reportedly thrilled with Prince Harry's engagement

Prince Harry's Friends Couldn't Stop Talking About Meghan Markle Engagement Announcement

Britain's Prince Harry said Monday, November 27 he was "thrilled" to be marrying his American girlfriend Meghan Markle early next year, confirming months of speculation about the one-time playboy royal and the glamorous actress.

"We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry", her parents Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland said in a statement through Kensington Palace.

After the wedding, the newlyweds will move into Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

Meghan Markle poses in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace, London, Britain, November 27, 2017.

Ms Markle has starred in the hit series as Rachel Zane and her character may finally say "I do" after postponing her nuptials in the fifth series of the show. Markle is best known for her role on TV show "Suits" as well as her philanthropic work. It was acquired a few years later by Canadian fashion house and importer PYA, which is based in a north Toronto suburb.

Ms Markle said: "Not being able to meet his mother, it's so important to me to know that she's a part of this with us".

Ms Markle's on-screen father, actor Wendell Pierce, who plays tough-as-nails lawyer Robert Zane, also gave the couple his blessing.

Harry and Markle, who is a divorcee, met in July 2016 after they were introduced through a friend who set them up on a blind date.




"We camped out with each other under the stars", the prince said.

As she got to know Harry, Markle learnt about the huge amount of public scrutiny that the royals face, and she said she was not prepared for the level of attention their relationship would have. The pair dated for almost a year and their wedding will occur sometime in the spring of 2018, royal officials announced. "Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person".

They added: "To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents".

The smitten couple announced that they would Wednesday earlier today, and shortly afterwards sat down for a chat with BBC journalist Michelle Hussain.

The Queen echoed this sentiment, and said they were "delighted".

The brothers have been much more open about their personal lives than other members of the royal family.

Exasperated by the media frenzy, the palace also released an extraordinary statement attacking the "sexism" and "racism" directed at Markle, who is of mixed race.

However, they all agreed that in this case, the ring is "priceless" due to its ties to Princess Diana.
