That most awaited Royal moment has arrived. Clarence House has recently announced that Prince Harry is to marry his long-time girlfriend, Meghan Markle in spring next year.
On asking the groom’s elder brother and sister-in-law, William and Kate, they said:
“We are very happy with the announcement and looking forward to seeing Harry and Meghan together. Since the starting, it has indeed been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together”.
Clarence House, the official account of Prince Charles and Camilla Bowles announced the couple got engaged in London this very month. They are also expected to show off the ‘Royal Engagement Ring’ at a photocall soon this week.
This Royal ceremony is likely to be conducted by Justin Welby. He is the archbishop of Canterbury, who also said that he was delighted by the Royal announcement. He also said that he had always been impressed by Harry’s ‘immense love for his family’.

A perfect date for this Royal wedding has already been decided. According to some reports, March is the most likely month. This also leaves quite enough time to ensure Kate Middleton is not about to give birth to her third born. The chances are that the Royal couple would be living in Nottingham Cottage at the Kensington Palace.
This breaking news of the upcoming Royal wedding will reflect an uncontrolled period of excitement in the media and in public. However, this will also further test Prince Harry’s relationship with the press. Harry spoke out about the way Meghan was portrayed when the news of their relationship became public, just a year ago.
Some time ago, Harry complained of a ‘smear on the front page’ of ‘The Sun’, which ran some images of Meghan in the television drama, ‘Suits’ appearing on Porn-hub, an adult website. It was headlined as ‘Harry girl’s on Porn-hub’. Though what was posted were some clips of intimate scenes from the programme and not pornography.
MEGHAN MARKLE HAS SPOKEN OF HER HERITAGE AS A SOURCE OF HER PRIDE.
“My father is Caucasian and my mother is African-American. To say who I am, to share where I’m from, or to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman”.

We are very excited for their future together”.
The statement from Clarence House said:
