Harry is fifth in line to the throne and has been dating 36-year-old Markle since the summer of 2016. The actress opened up about their relationship to Vanity Fair just recently, saying that they were in love, happy and enjoying their time together after just over a year of dating.

"We're a couple. We're in love," she said of the year-long romance. "I'm sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time."

"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 pair said they are "thrilled and happy" to be engaged.
