Vastavam web: Britain’s Prince Harry is to marry his American actress girlfriend Meghan Markle, after they got engaged earlier this month, according to an official announcement today.Harry, fifth in line to the British throne, is engaged to Markle, confirming months of rumours that the couple was close to tying the knot.”The wedding will take place in Spring 2018. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course,” it adds.
The announcement confirms that the couple had got engaged earlier this month and that the 33-year-old Harry had informed Queen Elizabeth II of his intention to marry Markle.”Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Markle’s parents. The couple will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace,” Clarence House said.Historically, Britain’s royals have frowned upon such weddings but that changed as the Queen gave her consent in 2005 for Prince Charles to marry Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who was also a divorcee.
UK bookmaker Ladbrokes had stopped taking bets on the engagement last week and some press reports over the weekend indicated that British Prime Minister Theresa May had “cleared her diary” in expectation of an announcement.
