Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Wedding: Where Will It Happen?

The world is buzzing with talk of Prince Harry's engagement to Meghan Markle, so much so the BBC had trouble remembering his brother William's name.

Markle's engagement ring features diamonds from Diana's collection.

Canadian designer Line the Label shot to prominence on Monday after US actress Meghan Markle wore a coat from the brand in her first public appearance after her engagement to Britain's Prince Harry.

Speaking to the BBC's Mishal Hussain later in the afternoon, the couple revealed all about how they met, how he proposed, and the special significance of the ring.

And it was an instant "yes" from Ms Markle.

Prince Harry's father, Charles, and stepmother Camilla issued a statement wishing them well and saying they were "thrilled" by their engagement.

After their engagement, Harry informed the queen, close members of the royal family and also sought the blessing of Markle's parents.

The "Suits" actress, wearing a white coat and nude high heels, said she was "so very happy" as she held Harry's hand and showed off her diamond engagement ring.

In September, UsWeekly reported that a source said that Markle had met the Queen and "it went well". "He got on one knee", Markle said.

Ms Markle spoke about her love for the prince for the first time in September - telling Vanity Fair magazine: "We're two people who are really happy and in love".

'I'm really happy for them and I hope they'll be happy together and have a great life.' Of the spring wedding date, Roslyn added: 'That will be so nice'.

Markle showed off her three-stone engagement ring set in yellow gold, which features a diamond from Botswana and two other gems from the collection of his mother, Diana, who died in a vehicle crash in 1997. She was born and raised in Los Angeles and graduated from Northwestern in 2003.

She attended a private primary school before studying at a girls' Roman Catholic college and later graduating from Northwestern University School of Communication in 2003, just as her acting career was beginning.

They are due to marry in the spring of next year.

Harry, 33, Queen Elizabeth's grandson and fifth-in-line to the British throne, and Markle, 36, best known for her role in the US TV legal drama Suits, got engaged this month at their cottage in London over a roast chicken dinner. The ring, which was designed by Prince Harry himself, is made with one big stone from Botswana and two smaller diamonds from Princess Diana's personal collection.
