Prince Harry Engaged to 'Suits' Actress Meghan Markle

Prince Harry Engaged to 'Suits' Actress Meghan Markle
After a highly publicized courtship, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially engaged.
 
Kensington Palace confirmed the news this morning (November 27), revealing that the couple became engaged in London earlier this month. The wedding is set to take place in the spring of 2018.
 
Markle is best known for starring as Rachel Zane on Suits, which is currently airing in its seventh season. The show is shot in Toronto, where Harry recently hosted the 2017 Invictus Games.
 
It was at this year's Invictus Games in Toronto that the couple made their first public appearance. And if the tabloid sensationalism over a peck on the cheek is any indication, there's a chance Harry and Markle could soon usurp his brother and Kate Middleton — at least when it comes to the Guinness Book of World Records.
 
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge currently hold the record for the "Most Live Streams for a Single Event" for their 2012 wedding, which garnered 72 million live streams on YouTube (eventually reaching 101 million total streams). It's estimated that a total of 176 million viewers tuned into the Royal Wedding broadcast in some format.
 
Royally speaking, though, Harry is still fifth in line to the throne.
 
Flag-waving, memorabilia-collecting royalists still have a few months to wait before the union of Prince Harry and Markle, but right now, you can get a look at some of the social media hysteria invading the internet. See a selection of reactions to the Royal Family's big news down below.
