Prince Harry is officially off the market after Meghan Markle accepted his marriage proposal, as previously reported by Dearly.
The beaming couple stood in front of the cameras for the first time as an engaged couple in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace — one of Princess Diana’s favorite spots — gushing about the romantic engagement, according to the Daily Mail.kensingtonroyal/Instagram
The prince, who is fifth in line to the throne, said he knew Markle was “the one” from “the first day we met.”
Markle showed off her sparkling diamond ring, which was personally designed by the prince and included special memories. Two of his late mother’s diamonds from her collection flank the center stone, which is from Botswana, where the couple went on safari together.

The Guardian reports that Harry followed in his brother’s footsteps by giving the “Suits” actress a ring that includes his mother’s diamonds. Prince William gave Kate Middleton Diana’s sapphire and diamond engagement ring when he proposed.
The couple will live at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace in London after they exchange vows in the spring of 2018.
