Harry and Meghan: Five things we learned about the royal engagement

A series of introductions to senior members of the royal family began as early as last autumn, when she met Prince Charles for the first time.

Markle is an actress who now stars on the television show "Suits".

Markle also wore a Line coat to the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games in Toronto in September, days after the pair made their first public appearance together.

Prince Harry and Meghan announced their engagement on Monday, and it has already emerged from royal experts that her future title - which according to tradition, the queen won't bestow until the morning of their wedding - is expected to be Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex.

Set on a yellow gold band, the center stone of the ring is from Botswana, where Prince Harry traveled to while growing up, and again this past summer with Markle to celebrate her 36th birthday.

Two of the diamonds on Meghan Markle's engagement ring are from Princess Diana's personal collection.

"The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness", said a message on the monarch's official Twitter page.

Ms Markle said the couple were having a cosy night at Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace, over roast chicken dinner.

Speaking to reporters, Prince Harry said he's "thrilled" to be marrying Meghan and added that he knew she was the one from the "very first time" they met, the Guardian reported. Just under half a mile away from Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey hosted the wedding of Queen Elizabeth II in 1947 and Prince William and Kate Middleton's nuptials in 2011. "Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person".

Ms Markle said: "Not being able to meet his mother, it's so important to me to know that she's a part of this with us". "The wedding will take place in spring 2018". The iconic domed landmark housed the wedding of Prince Harry's parents Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana Frances Spencer in 1981.

Members of the royal family have sent out their congratulatory messages to the couple.

Just four weeks after a blind date in July 2016 that left him "beautifully surprised", Prince Harry took his wife-to-be on a trip to Botswana to camp under the stars in his tent.

In his office's warning to the media, Prince Harry referred to the sexism and racism directed at ms Markle, whose father is white and her mother African-American.
