Who's ready for a spring wedding in 2018?

Clarence House announced Monday that Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle earlier this month in London. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip issued a joint statement congratulating the couple, as did Prince William and Kate Middleton. British Prime Minister Theresa May also sent her warm wishes to the twosome. "I would like to offer my very warmest congratulations to HRH Prince Harry and Meghan Markle upon their engagement," she said in a statement Monday. "This is a time of huge celebration and excitement for two people in love and, on behalf of myself, the Government and the country, I wish them great happiness for the future."

Likewise, Meghan's parents are "incredibly happy" for the future spouses.

Before Harry and Meghan pose for an official engagement portrait and sit down for a joint TV interview, set to air Monday night in the U.K., E! News is taking a look back at their private love:
