Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged
“The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle.”
Charles’ Clarence House also confirmed that the couple became engaged earlier this month.
More details about the wedding will come “in due course,” the tweet said. It also promised that Harry and Meghan would pose for photos later Monday and appear in an interview to be broadcast Monday evening.

For months, it had had become clear that Harry, 33, the fifth in line to the British throne, had found a serious partner in Markle, 36, who stars in the TV legal drama “Suits.”
But the sense that an engagement announcement was imminent had become stoked by reports last week that the Los Angeles-reared Markle had vacated the house she rents in Toronto, Canada, where “Suits” is filmed, and moved into Nottingham Cottage, the prince’s home on the grounds of Kensington Palace.
