It’s official: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged to be married, and the newlyweds-to-be are practically glowing. Even Kensington Palace has confirmed the news.

We don’t know for sure when the handsome prince popped the question, although rumors say it was earlier this month. What we do know is that the ring is simply gorgeous. It features a gold band with three stones. The center stone reportedly came from Botswana, where Prince Harry and Markle visited this summer to celebrate her birthday (and also where the prince has traveled to since he was a child). According to some sources, the two outside diamonds come from the late Princess Diana’s personal collection – a touching tribute to a beautiful woman.

The big day will supposedly happen spring of next year. Beyond Words is patiently waiting for an invitation.

Aside from sharing how happy they were and how romantic the proposal, the couple wouldn’t yet reveal more details when asked. Prince Harry told reporters that he knew Markle was the one the first time he laid eyes on her, and we’re all melting. MELTING.

Congratulations to these two lovebirds; and don’t worry — we’re already planning what to wear to your wedding. Cheers!
