We have another royal wedding on the horizon! Congratulations are in order for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The two got engaged earlier this month, and Kensington Palace announced the news early this morning. The official announcement read: "His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle. The wedding will take place in spring 2018. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course."

The couple, who have been dating since the summer of 2016, had their first official public appearance together earlier this year in September. It was a month later that Prince Harry proposed, as the announcement goes on to read: "His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessings of Ms. Markle's parents."
