While celebrating the happy news, Harry said he was “thrilled” and also “very glad it’s not raining” while Markle echoed, “so happy.”

Ready to swoon? Harry was asked when he knew that Markle was the one and he replied, “the very first time we met.” Awww! Amazing!

We don’t know the details about the proposal just yet since Harry said “that will come later” but he did admit that it was romantic with Markle adding “very.” Wow! It will be interesting to learn when it happened and whether they’ve been hiding this for a while.

Markle, who had been starring in the television show, Suits, for years has already been recognized as something of a style maven but people will be watching her clothing choices even closer than ever now that she’s almost royalty. For the photocall, she wore a bright, beautiful, white coat by Line the Label and we’ll be shocked if it doesn’t sell out by the end of the day.

It was clear that Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, was very much in his thoughts as he chose one of her favorite spots, the Sunken Garden, for this big moment in his life. Even more touching, however, is the fact that, in addition to a gorgeous diamond from Botswana as the center, Harry selected two stones from Diana’s collection for Markle’s engagement ring. How sweet!

In a statement, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip said they were “delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness.”

According to Clarence House, the wedding will take place in Spring 2018.
