Their married home will be the prince's current residence, Nottingham Cottage, on the grounds of Kensington Palace - where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, also have an apartment.

"It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together", the couple said in a joint statement.

Who is Meghan Markle? asked seemingly everybody, and the answer was perfectly charming: Before she made headlines as the love interest of a royal family member, Markle had established herself as an actress and star of the U.S. legal drama Suits, as well as a vocal humanitarian who served as a UN Women's Advocate for gender equality and a global ambassador for World Vision.

Markle revealed the moment was "so sweet and natural and very romantic" and Prince Harry couldn't finish his sentence before she said yes. "The wedding will take place in spring 2018".

Her Instagram feed was filled with aesthetically flawless images of her home, the Suits set, and her two rescued dogs, Bogart and Guy.

At the centre of the ring is a diamond from Botswana. The brand is based out of Toronto, which is wear Markle previously lived while filming the television show Suits.

"A three-carat diamond like that should cost around $200,000, through the diamond qualities us non-Royal folk usually go with would allow us to get a similar sized diamond for about $80,000", Fried said.

Monday's announcement swiftly consumed social media, with Markle's name once again trending on Twitter, alongside "Prince Harry", "Harry and Meghan" and #Royalengagement.

"I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends - best friends with Meghan".

"Now it's time to work as a team with you", she said as she turned to Prince Harry.

The Queen echoed this sentiment, and said they were "delighted".

Thirty-six-year-old Meghan Markle has always been consistent with her impeccable sense of style, and she did not disappoint when she made her first public appearance as Prince Harry's fiancée. "But we're happy. Personally, I love a great love story", she continued, referencing their choice to keep private.

The pair also announced that Ms Markle will not continue acting.

Until recently, a union with Ms Markle would have ruled Prince Harry out of succeeding to the throne - due to her being a Roman Catholic. The Church of England agreed in 2002 that divorced people could remarry in church at the discretion of the priest.

"We're a couple. We're in love", she said in the interview. Before that, it was occupied by Prince William and Kate Middleton.
