A ROYAL ENGAGEMENT: PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE TO WED AT WINDSOR CASTLE!

Prince Harry and fiancée Meghan Markle announced their engagement on Monday, with the beaming couple posing in front of the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in West London. Holding each other close, the bride-to-be flashed her stunning diamond ring which was accented with two gems from Princess Diana’s collection – a way for the prince to include his late mother in their happiness.

Harry, 33, and American actress Meghan, 36, got engaged earlier in November, with the Prince getting down on bended knee in the couple’s cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace.

The couple were set up on a blind date last summer by a mutual friend, followed quickly by a second date and then a whirlwind romance that took them from Canada to Botswana. The long distance union was not easy admitted the couple, with Harry’s schedule packed with his royal duties and Meghan busy shooting her USA series, Suits. But the two were determined to make it work.

The highly anticipated wedding will take place next May at Windsor Castle, with a spokesman revealing details about the upcoming ceremony.

“Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year. They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple.”

Though a specific date was not provided, Queen Elizabeth is confirmed to be at the wedding which will be officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.
