It’s a fairytale for the modern age!
On Monday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sat down with the press to open up about the specifics surrounding their happy engagement. As we previously reported, the twosome made their betrothal official with a statement via Clarence House and a photo call at Kensington Palace.
While the love birds initially remained tight-lipped about their engagement, they’ve since dished deets about the ginger prince’s simple, yet romantic proposal. According to the duo, the engagement occurred “a few weeks ago” while the two had dinner in their cottage.
Apparently, Meghan gave an instant “yes” and barely let her beau finish his big question. The Suits actress spilled:
“It was so sweet and natural and very romantic.”
Awwww. And it seems as though Harry has truly found his soulmate as he gushed to the cameras:
“The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so quickly was confirmation for me that all the stars were aligned. Everything was just perfect… This beautiful woman just literally tripped and fell in my life.”
We’re not crying, YOU ARE. On how they fell in love, Harry and Meghan revealed that it happened very organically. In fact, the 33-year-old became smitten with Markle as she didn’t really know much about him. He explained:
“It was hugely refreshing to get to know someone who isn’t necessarily in your circle, who doesn’t know much about me… to be able to start almost afresh right from the beginning and getting to know each other step by step.”
So sweet. Meghan confirmed this sentiment as she relayed:
“It was really refreshing because … I didn’t know about him. Everything I learned about him, I learned through him. Anything I learned about him and his family was what he would share with me and vice versa. It was really an authentic and organic way to get to know each other.”
What a perfect match. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the couple’s first sit down interview for yourself (below)!
