Follow all the reaction after Clarence House announced that the couple are to marry in spring 2018
Details of the venue and timing of the wedding are expected to be released on Tuesday with aides only saying it will be “a happy church wedding”.
Harry is understood to have told his close staff two weeks ago that he wanted to make the engagement public today and planning has been underway since then. The couple got engaged earlier this month in London.
The delay in announcement was partly due to Markle needing to finish filming on Suits which she did the week before last. The pair are due to give a broadcast interview this evening after posing for photos this afternoon outside Kensington Palace, where they will live in the two bedroom Nottingham Cottage.
