Finally, some good news on a Monday morning! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement today, breaking and then mending hearts all over the world. While the engagement doesn’t come as a complete surprise, people still had some hilarious and emotional reactions to the news. Obviously, this doesn’t affect us AT ALL, but it’s still fun to follow along with the Royal Family from the other side of the pond.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been dating since last year. Meghan is an American actress and humanitarian. Harry is a prince (duh) and the hottest royal we’ve seen in a while.

Not gonna lie, he broke some hearts today. But we suppose we can find it in our hearts to forgive him and be happy for them. We guess. We’ll try. Not making any promises though.
The reactions on Twitter to the engagement have been really funny.
All I want for Christmas is for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to invite the Obamas to the royal wedding and not the trumps.
Make it so.

Oh, sorry Mr. President*, your invitation must’ve gotten lost in the mail.

It’s like when international barrister Amal Clooney downgraded and married that actor fellow.

Um, same. Who do you have to know to get on the guest list? I’ll bring a gift and wear an insane hat.
Shortly after the official announcement, Meghan and Harry sat down for their first interview as a newly engaged couple. IT IS THE SWEETEST THING. They talked about how Harry proposed, how their relationship progressed, and they were so funny and genuine and lord let me find someone who looks at me the way he looks at her.

It’s really hard to be jealous of them when they’re so obviously perfect for each other. Hard, but not impossible.

Prince Harry says he chose yellow gold for Meghan Markle‘s ring as it is her favourite and that he chose diamonds from Diana’s collection so that she is “with them on this crazy journey.” #RoyalEngagementInterview

Of course, no engagement announcement would be complete without a ring shot. Harry says he used diamonds from Diana’s collection because “she is with them on this crazy journey”. Gonna need some tissues.
Prince Harry on what his mother, Diana, would think of Meghan: "Oh they'd be thick as thieves, without question, I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends with Meghan."

Like an entire box of tissues. Immediately.
Harry is 5th in line for the throne, behind his father, brother William, and Will and Kate’s children George and Charlotte (Kate is due with their third next year). So if Meghan wants to be known as Princess or Queen one day, Harry better get busy.
Prince Harry is fifth in line for the throne? He's going to have to get murderin' if its ever going to happen for him.

And finally, it wouldn’t be royally official without the blessing of the Queen, which we hope went something like this.

Prince Harry: Grandmama, I want to marry this woman but she's a divor-
QE II: eh by the power invested in me by my ancestor’s bullshit, do whatever you fucking want.
