Congratulations Meghan Markle and Prince Harry!

How excited am I that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are engaged? I’m literally so happy. I’m not sure why us Americans have a little obsession with the British royalty but I’m not about to overthink it. I remember setting my DVR to see the royal wedding of Kate and Prince William. I also spent four months studying and working in London while I was in college so British culture and royalty holds a special place in my heart.

Now, let’s talk about the couple. They met through mutual friends in 2016 and kept their relationship as quiet as they could for as long as they could. Prince Harry is the son of the late and adored Princess Diana and Markle is a half African American, half Caucasian actress most known for her work in USA’s hit show, “Suits”. She also holds a masters degree in social work.

The couple was found today, November 27, 2017, in Kensington Gardens where they briefly met the press and officially announced their engagement. Smiles on both their faces, their reserved nature couldn’t mask their giddiness. The couple didn’t take too many questions. As they have always kept their relationship private, the encounter at Kensington Gardens was simple, short, and sweet. Take a look at the footage yourself, here!

According to “US Magazine”, Prince Harry designed the ring using one diamond from Botswana and two from his mother, Princess Diana’s, collection. I’m not crying – you’re crying! “Allure Magazine” features some beautiful photographs of the ring.

I must say this was lovely news to read in the morning. With the constant barrage of discouraging news stories that we usually wake up to, it was really refreshing to wake up to something so joyous.
