Meghan and Harry’s Royal Engagement

Posted on December 21 by Allison Dupree

How they met— Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were introduced by a mutual friend and set up on a blind date sometime in 2016. Meghan didn’t know much about Harry before they met, and her only real question about the prince was “is he nice?” Harry also didn’t know much about Meghan and had never seen her show Suits, so the couple was truly on a blind date. They had the luxury of dating quietly for a few months early into their relationship, but after the news broke, the couple was caught up in a media storm. The couple’s second date was camping under the stars in Botswana, which sounds incredibly romantic if you ask me. When and where did they get engaged? The couple announced their engagement on November 27, 2017. In their statement, however, it was mentioned that the actual engagement had taken place earlier in the month in their cottage. How did he ask? The couple was at home “trying to cook a chicken” Harry said in their BBC interview when he decided to pop the question. Meghan said it came as a complete surprise and didn’t even let him finish proposing because she was so excited. Their engagement photos are nothing short of stunning. From her gorgeous gown to the beautiful shots of the ring, there is no doubt in my mind about how in love this couple truly is.

We cannot wait for the May 19th wedding and all of the other wedding details we will learn in the coming months!
