Prince Harry, Meghan Markle to tie knot in spring 2018

The royal couple posed for photographs in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, where Meghan also showcased her lovely engagement ring. "This ring is truly priceless with unmatched cultural significance", she said in an email.

However, Prince Harry, like his brother, is likely to be made a duke when he marries, meaning Ms Markle would become a duchess.

Just weeks after they met, Prince Harry convinced Ms Markle to join him on a trip to Botswana.

But the $34 million price tag is still rather small in comparison to their parent's, Princess Diana and Prince Charles' 1981 wedding, which cost an estimated $110 million, when adjusted for inflation today.

In their first broadcast interview since announcing the news earlier on Monday (Nov 27), Harry and Markle held hands as they discussed the moment of their proposal and their courtship.

The pair were introduced in July 2016 by mutual friends in London, Markle confirmed in September.

"I really do admin - add my the way Harry and Hezbollah have..." the text on screen read.

"It was definitely a set up - it was a blind date", Markle said.

"I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her", he said.

"I did not have any understanding of just what it would be like", she said, saying there was a misconception that because she was an actress she would be used to being in the media spotlight.

She has reportedly already begun moving her two dogs Guy and Bogart to London, ahead of what will be Britain's first royal wedding since William and Kate in 2011.

It is set to be a busy spring for the royal family, with the wedding and the arrival of a new child for William and Kate providing light relief from the dour political headlines as Britain negotiates Brexit.

"The ring is obviously yellow gold because that's (Markle's) favorite and the main stone itself is sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewelry collection to make sure that she's with us on this insane journey together", Prince Harry said in an interview with BBC on Monday. "Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person".

For his part, the prince had never seen Suits, the American legal drama in which Ms Markle stars, and had never even heard of her before they met.

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

The 36-year-old LA native spoke of her royal relationship for the first time earlier this year telling Vanity Fair: "We're two people who are really happy and in love".

They are due to marry in the spring of next year.
