  • Actor Meghan Markle recently left the show Suits after season 7 wrapped

This morning, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially announced their engagement news-giving us all the royal wedding watch we've been waiting for.

The prince, 33, and the "Suits" actress, 36, are expected to tie the knot in a ceremony next spring, according to a statement from Clarence House. Historically, Britain's royals have frowned upon such weddings but that changed as the Queen gave her consent in 2005 for Prince Charles to marry Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who was also a divorcee.

Harry and Markle kept their relationship fairly secret until the prince proved his loyalty by blasting the hateful comments being directed towards his new love.

The couple revealed that they first met when they were set up by a female friend. Markle is best known for her role on TV show "Suits" as well as her philanthropic work.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh said they were "delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness", a Buckingham Palace spokesman said.

Ms Markle's parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, said their daughter was a "kind and loving person" and they were "incredibly happy".

Thirty-six-year-old Meghan Markle has always been consistent with her impeccable sense of style, and she did not disappoint when she made her first public appearance as Prince Harry's fiancée.

Bureau of Labor Statistics also released preliminary estimates on Thursday showing the state gained 4,800 jobs in October. The national rate was 4.1 percent in October, down from 4.2 percent in September and 4.8 percent in October 2016.


During the wide-ranging interview, the Prince of Wales told of how the couple were introduced by a mutual friend while on a blind date. "But we're happy. Personally, I love a great love story", she continued, referencing their choice to keep private.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to marry in spring 2018.

The pair also announced that Ms Markle will not continue acting.

"We're a couple. We're in love", she said in the interview.

Ms Markle may not have been a familiar name in the United Kingdom until recently, but in the U.S. she was known for her role as Rachel Zane in TV legal drama Suits.

Until recently, a union with Ms Markle would have ruled Prince Harry out of succeeding to the throne - due to her being a Roman Catholic.

In 2011, she married film producer Trevor Engelson but they divorced two years later. Before that, it was the first home shared by Prince William and Kate Middleton after their marriage. The ring, which was designed by Prince Harry himself, is made with one big stone from Botswana and two smaller diamonds from Princess Diana's personal collection.
