Clarence House announced Monday that the prince proposed to the Suits actress earlier this month in London—after receiving her parents' blessing, of course. "We're thrilled. We're both thrilled," Prince Charles said on behalf of himself and Camilla Parker-Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall. "We hope they'll be very happy indeed." This will be the first marriage for Harry and the second for Meghan, who was married to Heathers producer Trevor Engelson for two years.
Hours after announcing their engagement, Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, hosted a photo op in Kensington Palace's Sunken Gardens, one of the late Princess Diana's favorite spots. For her debut as Harry's fiancée, the bride-to-be modeled a white coat by Line the Label, an emerald green dress by P.A.R.O.S.H, nude pumps by Aquazzura, and yellow gold and opal earrings by Les Plaisirs de Birks. Of course, Meghan also flashed her engagement ring, which Harry himself designed with a center stone from Botswana and two smaller diamonds from Diana's collection.
In a brief Q&A with members of the press, Harry said they are "thrilled" to be tying the knot, and joked that he was "very glad it's not raining!" Harry's fiancée added that she is "so happy." The duo had just taped their first joint TV interview, which aired in the U.K. later that evening.
