It's official, Meghan Markle is set to become a royal. Kensington Palace confirmed that Prince Harry proposed to his American boo earlier this month in London, though they didn't confirm the happy news until now.
As the world cheered, the happy couple has also now made their first public appearance as "engaged." At a press event at Kensington Palace's Sunken Garden, which is said to have been Princess Diana's favorite part of the palace, they posed for pictures and showed off the ring. But the location isn't the only influence the late Diana has had on the event.
The prince designed Meghan's ring, which includes two diamonds from his mom. At the center is a diamond from Botswana, a country the couple has spent time together over the last year and a half. They'll be getting hitched in the spring, though the location hasn't been announced as yet. Congrats!
- ONE MORE THING! Meghan and Harry have also sat for their first interview, where they discussed the engagement itself. Turns out, the prince popped the question while the two were cooking dinner at their cottage. According to Meghan, she couldn't even wait for the proposal to be over before she started saying yes. As for when he knew Meghan "was the one?" Prince Harry admits, "The very first time we met."
