After rumours that the couple were getting ready to tie the knot, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have confirmed their engagement.
Rumours were circulating after Prince Harry and Meghan returned from a holiday to London together earlier in 2017, and they’ve persisted ever since.
Some sources, which it seems were right, suggested at the time that Prince Harry was seeking the Queen’s approval for the wedding.

The rumour mill started working overtime once again after Ms Markle was spotted in west London hitting the designer shops of Chelsea, as reported by ABC News.
Royal ‘insiders’ claim that Harry popped the question while they were holidaying in Africa.
The lucky 36-year-old actress has been married before, to Trever Engelson, whom she divorced in August 2013.
Meghan is best known for her role as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits.
When rumours of their relationship first hit the media, Meghan was subjected to a ‘wave of abuse and harassment’.
But it seems that the media attention hasn’t deterred their intentions as they announced their engagement.
Good luck to them, and a hearty thank you from the citizens of Britain who are no doubt marking their calendars for an extra day off work in the new year!
