Prior to the wedding, 36-year oil Meghan who is a Protestant Christian, will be baptized and embrace the Anglican faith. She will also be granted British citizenship.

The Windsor Castle has special significance in the lives of the couple as they have spent a considerable amount of time within its grounds after their first meeting that transpired in May 2016.

Prince Harry is fifth in line to Britain’s throne. It was over a cozy dinner at Nottingham Cottage, Kensington Palace, London, when they were cooking roast chicken that Harry went down on one knee to propose marriage to his girlfriend. Meghan, who is 3 years older than Harry, said YES without letting him finish. Also, she described it to be an incredibly romantic experience.

The engagement ring bore 3 gleaming diamonds: a middle stone from Botswana and the remaining 2 were from the ensemble of Harry’s mom Princess Diana.

Apparently, it was a mutual friend in London who set up the American actress and the Royal Prince. They went on a blind date after which there were subsequent meetings. Harry also gushed that it was during their first meeting that he knew Meghan was the one for him.

They also went for camping in Botswana for 5 days after going on a couple of dates.  Thereafter, for the following months, the couple stayed indoors, cooked dinner and watched television for avoiding any public attention.

Meghan is a divorcee and 3 years older than Harry. In 2011, she married film producer Trevor Engelson; their marriage lasted for 2 years. Markle is engaged with humanitarian services and works as an advocate for women with the United Nations.

Harry confessed that he was nervous about bringing Meghan into the Royal Family because of the pressures that accompany her new role. Also, he was of the opinion that Meghan would have got along famously with his mother Princess Diana. Furthermore, the Queen’s much-adored Corgis were known to have warmed up to Meghan during their meeting with Queen Elizabeth.

Harry’s brother and sister-in-law Prince William and Kate Middleton will have their third child in April next year. Thereafter, the nuptials of Harry and Meghan will take place in May.

We wish the newly-engaged couple a ‘Happy Married Life’ and hope they live happily ever after.
