The ring was designed personally by Prince Harry, and was made by designed by Harry, made by Cleave and Company.

It consists of three stones; one from Botswana, a country where the couple recently returned from after a romantic holiday.

The two other diamonds are from his mother’s personal collection.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle appeared in the Sunken Gardens for the photocall and answered a couple of questions from reporters.

When asked whether the proposal was romantic, the 33-year-old Prince replied: “of course it was”.

He added that he “knew Meghan was the one straight away.”

Monday’s photocall was the first glimpse we got of Harry and Meghan together since the Invictus Games in Toronto.

Earlier this morning, Clarence House announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged to be married.

Since then, members of both families have released statements expressing their congratulations.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said: “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.”

Before taking Meghan’s hand in marriage, Prince Harry sought and received the blessing of Meghan’s parents.

Meghan’s parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, have released a statement saying: “We’re incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry.

“Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person.

“To see her union with Prince Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents.

“We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.”

      Especially the 3rd or 4th time around.
      Let’s hope she’s not going to bolt when someone better crosses her path.

        When people downtalk your lifes special moments – you’ll deserve it.

          would you say the same thing about serial murderer? Every kill is their “special moment”. So, would you condemn all people who oppose murder to being murdered? If it walks like duck, and it quacks like duck, it IS a duck. No lies were told by Pennie.

          I think you should be careful about what you wish to others as Karma is real and you just wished someone a misfortune.

            Hey, Bubbly.. Thank you for your kind post.
            I really appreciate your opinion.
            I wish I said that as eloquent as you did..
            Thank you, again.

            You with your negative outlook at the sunny sides of other peoples lives, party on oh righteous one. Go you.

      • Bubbly

        Pennie, you always hit the nail on the head. I couldn’t agree more with you.

    Wishing the happy couple the happiest of congratulations and all the best for a joyous and happy future together.

    LOL have you tried to say it in breath?A struggle! The whole thing is a struggle to prove something that doesn’t matter anymore. RF is getting more and more unpopular and marrying this woman just signed their dismal end.

    As for the two of them, not considering them as anything but two middle aged people who want to get married and all that, Harry has enough wealth to last him a life time and enough to spare; she has some money too, so financially wise, yes, they are set for life. Than again, if he wasn’t a member of RF this engagement would never happen.

    Overall, if titles are abolished and money run out, the whole thing will dissolve as well. Probably not quietly either, lol (the woman will try to milk it any way possible and what better way than media, eh?).

      You live that double negative life about that couple, go you.
