It has been confirmed that Prince Harry, 5th in line to the throne of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, will marry his actress fiance Megan Markle. Having just wrapped up the last season of Suits, Markle flew straight to London to be with her new man, with the two now spending more time with each other than ever before and the couple became engaged just last month after dating since June 2016.
The news comes during a year in which the two have been photographed together on numerous occasions, and they even made their first public appearance together, taking in a wheelchair tennis match at the Invictus Games in Toronto this August. Markle has also been spotted out and about grocery shopping in the plush West London area of Kensington, which is close to Harry's Kensington Palace residency, fuelling rumors that she will make the address her permanent one. In an interview with Vanity Fair last month, Markle even commented on her relationship with the heartthrob, telling the reporter, "We’re two people who are really happy and in love.” It is also confirmed Markle will live with Harry in a two-bed apartment in Nottingham Cottage, located within the grounds of Kensington Palace.
Harry was thought to have a bit of a playboy lifestyle before settling down in recent years and become far more private and guarded of the media but this blossoming romance has captured the interest of many across the globe and the pair will now get married next spring. It is thought that Ms. Markle will probably retire from her acting career to take on more stately responsibilities.
In a statement, Prince Harry said he was "delighted to announce" the engagement and had received the blessing of Ms. Markle's parents.
