Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘secretly got engaged months before palace announcement’


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did tie the knot at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19, 2018 – but they may have made their relationship more official sometime before their engagement became public knowledge.

After their public engagement announcement, the pair stood outside Kensington Palace and spoke with the press.

One asked the Duke if his proposal was romantic, to which he replied, smiling: “Of course it was”.

Another asked, “when did you know she was the one?”, and Harry replied, “the very first time we met”.

The statement released by the royal household said the Duchess had said yes to the proposal “earlier this month”.

It read: “His Royal Highness and Ms Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family.

“Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms Markle’s parents.”

But Ms Low has since claimed the couple may have actually been engaged four months earlier than the statement indicates.

This would mean that Meghan had already said “yes” when she appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair to confirm she was dating Harry.

However, she claimed everyone in Kensington Palace already knew about the big news before it was revealed to the public months later.

She wrote: “The interview was, in effect, Meghan’s big launch.

“The couple were not officially engaged – though everyone in Kensington Palace knew they had been privately engaged since the late summer – but this was Meghan putting herself out there in a confident, pro-active way.”
