Cape Town - It’s official!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will say “I do” on 19 May next year.

Kensington Palace announced the big day on Friday, after confirming last month Meghan would meet her prince at the altar of St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The 33-year-old royal and his actress fiancée (36) announced their engagement last month, after just over a year of dating.

It was love at first sight for Harry, the blue blood revealed in the pair’s engagement interview aired on BBC.

He popped the question in October at his cottage on the Kensington Palace grounds, while he and Meghan were enjoying a quiet night in.

"She didn't even let me finish, she said can I say yes, can I say yes,” Harry gushed. “And then were was hugs and I had the ring in my finger and I was like can I - can I give you the ring? She goes - oh yes the ring.

"So no it was – it was a really nice moment, it was just the two of us and I think managed to catch – catch her by surprise as well."
