On November 27, Clarence House put all speculation about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship status to an end by confirming their engagement.
This news came a little over a year since the pair started dating after meeting in Toronto, Canada. Meghan was filming Suits at the time, and Harry was in town to promote the Invictus Games.
"We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception," the actress told Vanity Fair.
Six months into their relationship, the palace confirmed that the pair were together in a statement that addressed the hostile and racist comments that were being made about the couple.
"It is not right, that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm," the statement read. "He knows commentators will say this is 'the price she has to pay' and that 'this is all part of the game.' He strongly disagrees. This is not a game—it is her life and his."
The lovebirds made their official debut as a couple at this year's Invictus Games, and about two months later, it was announced that they're planning a wedding for next spring.
Now, Kensington Palace has released a statement with more details about Harry and Meghan's upcoming nuptials, including the date.
