Just a few hours after the announcement of their engagement, Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle held a photocall at the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace. The picturesque ornamental garden was a favorite of Prince Harry's late mother, Princess Diana. Featuring an 18th-century gardening style with vibrant flower displays, ponds, and fountains, it is the perfect backdrop to their first public photographs as an engaged couple. This event also marks their first public appearance after the Invictus Games held in September.

Meghan Markle walked out in a white trench coat and an army dress underneath, while Prince Harry wore a suit. Both were beaming with joy as they waved to the press and the crowds. They were both "happy and thrilled," they announced.

The Palace revealed that Prince Harry asked Meghan's parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, for permission before popping the question. The prince wasn't ready to reveal just yet how he proposed ("That will come later," he quipped), but when asked if it was romantic, he replied, laughing, "Of course, it was!" 

When did he know that she's the one? "From the first time we met," he said. 

Their official photocall video was released by the Kensington Palace Twitter account.

In today's official announcement, it was also revealed that they have been engaged since early this month. The couple has been dating for over a year. Their wedding is speculated to be held in the spring of 2018.
