Well-wishes have poured in from around the globe and many members of the royal family, Queen Elizabeth and Prince William included, have offered their congratulations to the happy couple.
After the official announcement, Harry and Meghan sat down with BBC’s Mishal Husain to discuss their courtship, engagement, and future plans.
The couple revealed sweet details about the low-key proposal – they were roasting a chicken for dinner when Harry suddenly got down on one knee.
Meghan also showed off the gorgeous sparkler that now adorns her left ring finger. The large diamond in the middle comes from Botswana, a place of great significance to the couple, but the two smaller diamonds on either side are even more special – they came from Princess Diana’s personal collection.
Harry said it was important to him to include his mother’s diamonds “to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together.”
The day was filled with love, laughter, and excitement. The couple posed together for pictures in the Sunken Gardens atKensington Palace, which was one of Princess Diana’s favorite places. It was there that perhaps the sweetest moment of all occurred.
As the couple smiled for the cameras, one of the reporters asked the dashing young prince when he knew Meghan was the one. Without missing a beat, Harry answered:
“The very first time we met.”
Harry and Meghan plan to wed in May 2018, after the birth of Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s third child.
We’re sure there will be much hustle, bustle, and speculation leading up to the big day, but for now we wish this royal couple all the best as they look toward the future and the rest of their lives together!
