In a history-making announcement, Clarence House said Monday that Prince Harry, 33, and his girlfriend, 36-year-old Markle, are engaged and will wed in the spring.
The news comes after the couple made their first appearance together at an official public event — Harry’s Invictus Games in Toronto — in September.
Clarence House, the official residence of Prince Harry’s father Charles, Prince of Wales, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, said further details about the wedding day would be announced in due course.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, 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.”
