The couple dated for about a year and a half before becoming engaged this month.

It's official! Meghan and Harry are engaged.

Harry, the 33-year-old second son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, quietly proposed to Markle earlier this month.

Priyanka might be Meghan's bridesmaid next year, at the wedding.

Although she says in a Tweet that she's "delighted" for the couple, it remains to be seen whether Queen Elizabeth II will actually attend their wedding.
