It was announced on Monday morning that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged.

The Prince, son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, proposed to his girlfriend earlier this month in London. BBC reports that Markle’s engagement ring was designed by her soon-to-be husband, and contains two diamonds which belonged to his mother. The couple is set to marry in spring of 2018 and will reside in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

 

Prior to this engagement, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship has been under scrutiny by the media due to her being a Catholic divorcee, her acting role on Suits, and her biracial background. The actress’ mother is black and her father is white. Prince Harry condemned the news coverage, labeling it racist and sexist. And while some may not be too thrilled, many users on Twitter were elated about the news and shared their exciting about the royal wedding.
