Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just made their first public appearance as a newly engaged couple

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made their first public appearance as a newly engaged couple.

The pair appeared for a photo call outside of Kensington Palace on Monday afternoon after announcing their engagement on Monday morning.

Harry was wearing a dark blue suit, while Markle was dressed in a white overcoat.

The couple held hands as a reporter asked how Harry proposed, to which he said: “That will come later.”

However, he said the proposal was romantic and that he was “thrilled” to be engaged, while Markle confirmed she was “very happy.”

When asked by the press when he knew that Markle was “the one,” he replied “the very first time they met.”

They are set to marry in Spring 2018 and will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

While the exact date and venue are still unknown, Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral – the wedding venues of Harry’s grandparents and parents respectively – are both possible locations despite the fact Markle is a divorcee.
