Reaction pouring in over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's engagement


A royal wedding is coming!

33-year-old Prince Harry will marry 36-year-old Hollywood actress Meghan Markle next Spring.

"It is also getting attention because she is different from anything the royal family has ever had before. She is bi-racial, she's divorced, she's older than her future husband. She is completely different," said Dan Wakeford, Deputy Editor of People Magazine

Congratulations have been piling up on twitter from former president Barack Obama, wishing the two "a lifetime of joy and happiness together"

And from Markle's TV husband Patrick Adams on the TV series Suits who wrote: “she said she was just going out to get some milk... And then followed up with a note to his royal highness writing in part: you are a lucky man... Much love.”

They met on a blind date set up by a mutual friend last year. The prince proposed to Markle earlier this month as they were cooking dinner at home.

"It was so sweet and natural and he got on one knee," says Meghan. She says it was an instant yes.

Fans are already wondering what Markle will wear for her wedding.

The white coat she sported for her official engagement appearance on Monday set off a frenzy that crashed the website of the Canadian brand "line the label."

It is days like today I miss having her around, miss being able to share the happy news, but with the ring Meghan: she's with us, she's with us, yeah jumping up and down somewhere else
