The ring is a three-stone diamond engagement ring that Harry designed himself, according to People. The ring is made up of three diamonds, with one large stone in the center with two smaller stones on the sides. As reported by People, the ring has a lot of sentimental value to Prince Harry. “The two stones are from his late mother, Princess Diana‘s personal collection, while the other stone is from Botswana, a country that is close to his heart.” The ring was crafted by British jewelers Cleave and Company, the jewelers to Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

In a statement from Clarence House and Kensington Palace, Prince Harry’s father, Prince of Wales announced the engagement. The couple is said to marry in Spring 2018 and official details will be revealed in due course.

Members of the royal family have also expressed their well wishes and excitement for the couple. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stated: “‘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.” Queen Elizabeth also expressed her excitement and wished them every happiness.

Markle’s parents also shared their excitement for the couple and for their future together stating how they are “incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry.”

In a telling interview with Vanity Fair, Meghan Markle opened open about her relationship with Prince Harry. Markle told Vanity Fair, “We’re a couple,” she explains. “We’re in love. 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. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”

Rumors of a royal engagement have been ablaze since the couple stepped out in public for the first time at the Invictus Games in September, and according to statements, the couple has been engaged since the beginning of the November.
