Actress Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Are Engaged
Well, well, well…The often described “bad boy” of the Royal Kingdom is finally settling down.
CNN reported today that Prince Harry, 33, is engaged to actress Meghan Markle, 36. Kensington Palace made it official, announcing the engagement on its Twitter account:
You may have seen Markle on USA’s Suits and Fox’s Fringe. If not, here is a little more of the beauty’s backstory –
Markle hails from Los Angeles and she has a degree from Northwestern University. Remember those “briefcase girls” on Deal or No Deal? Yea, she was one of them. She has appeared in many other TV shows like Knight Rider, Without a Trace, and CSI: NY, but Suits was her breakout role.
Ever since announcing they were an official couple in November of 2016, the prince has been candid about the “wave of abuse and harassment” Markle has experienced, some of which has been due to her being of mixed heritage. Her mother is African-American and her father is of f Dutch, English, Irish and Scottish descent.
The couple is expected to make an appearance this afternoon, and later today, they will be featured in a televised piece (hopefully, to spill some insider’s tea on how they met).
The Prince and Markle are wasting no time getting hitched either. They are expected to wed in Spring 2018.
Congratulations to the couple! And cheers to the historical significance of this Royal union!
