The royal family which has been known to be secretive made the engagement known to the public on Monday. In an interview with BBC's Mishal Husain, Markle revealed that they met in July 2016 on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

The two went on a camping trip to Botswana where Markle said Prince Harry proposed to her. Prince Harry will be the second of the late #Princess Diana's sons to have a royal wedding. The first was done by his brother, Prince William. His wedding was watched by thousands of people across the globe. Many Americans took their time to watch the live coverage of the wedding.

This showed the importance of royal weddings to the world. William is the heir to the British throne and the firstborn son of late Princess Diana. The engagement of Harry to Markle concludes the speculation of their relationship.
