In a year marked with a whole bunch of bad stuff, the entire world was pretty darn excited when it was announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged. Finally, something to look forward to rather than going with our usual move of curling up into a ball and crying and being filled with an overwhelming sense of dread. Everybody loves weddings!
Today, there's more good news on the Royal Wedding front — engagement pictures are here! Hooray!
OK, real talk: Every picture of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is completely adorable and perfect.

Even these kind of weird coffee mugs make them look like the most attractive couple on the planet.

But then, something incredible happened:
