There’s Officially a Date for the Royal Wedding
t's time to set your alarms and/or DVRs because there is officially a date for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's epic royal wedding. The beyond adorable couple announced their engagement in November, and it seems like they went straight into planning mode. We can't blame them. They're too cute to not be married to each other for much longer.
So grab your 2018 planner and a big red pen because you're going to want to write this date down. We're serious. We'll wait.
OK, now that you've got everything you need, let's all take a moment to totally freak out.
A royal wedding is happening! So soon! It’s going to be magical and fancy and perfect! Prince Harry is marrying American actor and activist Meghan Markle, and they are a match made in fairy tales and storybooks.
Look at them. They're gorgeous.
They started dating in June of last year after being introduced by mutual friend and got engaged in November. The story of how the proposal went down is super sweet, though you might think it’s atypical for a member of the British royal family.
They way they tell it, it happened during a "standard, typical night" for the two of them.
In an interview with the BBC, Markle said, “What were we doing? Just roasting chicken — trying to roast a chicken. It was just an amazing surprise. It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee.”
We know. Tears.
Markle turned to Harry and added, “I could barely let you finish proposing. I was like, ‘Can I say yes now?'”
But that's not the only supremely touching detail about their engagement.
Prince Harry designed the ring with which he proposed. The center diamond is from Botswana, where the couple has spent time together, and the two outside stones are from the collection of the late Princess Diana, Prince Harry’s mother.
These two are clearly made for each other, and that's all the more reason everyone is so excited for the wedding bells to actually start ringing.
When they announced their engagement last month, they expressed that they wanted to get married sometime in the spring, but they hadn’t yet picked a date.
This morning, the date was finally announced…
