The pair, who quietly got engaged last month, have been dating for 16 months. 

The announcement came from Prince Charles - Harry's father, and said: "The Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle. 

"The wedding will take place in Spring 2018. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course."

The couple will live in Nothingham Cottage at Kessington Palace, where Prince Harry currently stays. The couple met through mutual friends and were first spotted together at Invictus Game. 

They will appear for photographs outside Kessington Palace later today, and then take part in an interview to be broadcast in the evening.
