In the less than two days since the
happiest news we’ve ever heard news broke that Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle were engaged after a whirlwind 18-month romance, we’ve learned quite a lot.
We learned the significance behind Meghan’s stunning, 2.5 carat, triple diamond ring.
We learned how Harry surprised her by popping the question over a casual roast chicken dinner.
Heck, we even learned exactly how the Queen’s beloved corgis reacted to Meghan’s first visit.
(Which, let’s be honest, is the only thing that really matters…)
And now, we've learned the date we will need to be ~~mysteriously absent~~ from work, because we'll be busy flying to the UK for the next royal wedding.
Yep, the friendly chaps over at Kensington Palace have confirmed that Meghan will walk down the aisle towards Prince Harry in May 2018.

"The marriage of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms Meghan Markle will take place at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle in May, 2018," said the announcement - which feels like it should be shouted in a town square accompanied by a large bell and a "Hear ye, hear ye!".
"Her Majesty The Queen has granted permission for the wedding to take place at the Chapel."
The date is a month after Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their third child, which means there may be an extra-adorable flower girl or page boy in attendance (in mum's arms, of course).
