Get ready for another royal wedding!

Prince Carl Philip of Sweden just revealed that he is engaged to longtime love Sofia Hellqvist.

The soon-to-be husband and wife also posed for royal engagement photos (and had their first official public kiss!) in the garden of Drottningholm Palace earlier today.

The 35-year-old told reporters, "I have the incredible honor of being engaged to this fantastic girl. Sofia has today said yes to the question to spend the rest of her life together with me. Today is a very happy day for Sofia and I."

The brunette beauty added, "Carl Philip is the most humble person I have ever met, which is what made me fall for him in the beginning. He has one of the most beautiful hearts, he is very warm."

Sofia looked stunning in a bright red cocktail dress, while her fiancé looked equally as sharp in a perfectly fitted navy suit.

The happy couple also shared that they are already getting a start on wedding planning, and are looking to tie the knot during the summer of 2015.

And it's not like things happened on a whim with these two…

The King of Sweden gave consent to his son after receiving approval of the marriage from the Swedish government, which is in accordance with procedures specifically outlined in the Swedish Constitution. Such red tape!

Sofia, who is a former model, began dating the prince back in 2010 after having met him a year prior.

The two have been living together for quite a while now in the Stockholm suburb of Djurgården.

Congratulations to the newly engaged duo!
