Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged, Gossip Cop can officially confirm. Clarence House announced the royal engagement on Monday. The royal wedding is set to take place next Spring.

Clarence House said in a statement, “His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms Meghan Markle. The wedding will take place in Spring 2018. His Royal Highness and Ms Markle became engaged in London earlier this month.” The statement continued, “Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms Markle’s parents. The couple will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said of Prince Harry’s engagement to actress, “We are very excited for Harry and Meghan. It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together.” Markle’s parents, Tom and Doria, similarly said, “We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents. We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.”

Prince Harry and the “Suits” actress went public with their romance in October 2016, before making their official debut as a couple the following year at the Invictus Games in Toronto. Not surprisingly, once the news of their relationship was announced, a number of outlets published a slew of inaccurate and speculative stories about the couple. For example, Gossip Cop corrected the often disproven Celeb Dirty Laundry for falsely alleging Markle was using Prince Harry to boost her Hollywood career. We even debunked OK! for wrongly claiming that Prince Harry and Markle were house hunting in America.

As Gossip Cop reported, Markle covered the October 2017 issue of Vanity Fair, and in the accompanying interview, she opened up about her relationship with the royal for the first time. Gushing about her romance, Markle said of Prince Harry, “We’re in love.” She added, “I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time… This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. We’re two people who are really happy and in love.”

This will mark the first marriage for 33-year-old Prince Harry. Markle was previously wed to film producer Trevor Engelson, but the couple filed for divorce in 2013, citing irreconcilable differences. Gossip Cop wishes the spouses-to-be many years of health and happiness.
