The former Suits star is happily engaged to British Royal, Prince Harry. The couple announced their engagement this morning to the surprise of almost no one. The notoriously single bachelor has been dating Markle for almost two years, and recent signs have been suggesting that an engagement was coming soon.
In a statement, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip said they were “delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness.” The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate) said of the engagement: “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.”

The couple also showed off Markle’s diamond engagement ring, which Harry designed himself. The center stone is a diamond from Botswana. The outside two diamonds are from his late mother Princess Diana’s collection.
Markle and Prince Harry plan to marry in Spring, 2018.
This is an amazing display of love and diversity. Meghan is not only an American (which is a big deal in and of itself), but she is also biracial (Black and White). Hooray for interracial relationships!
Congratulations, Meghan and Prince Harry.
