Prince Harry has revealed he proposed to fiancée Meghan Markle while the pair cooked roast chicken at their home in Kensington Palace.

"It was so sweet and natural, and very romantic".

Markle's engagement ring features diamonds from Diana's collection.

The announcement confirms that the couple had got engaged earlier this month and that the 33-year-old Harry had informed Queen Elizabeth II of his intention to marry Markle.

Harry and Markle, who is a divorcee, met in July 2016 after they were introduced through a friend who set them up on a blind date.

He said that he had not watched the show which made Ms Markle's name, and Ms Markle too was relatively unfamiliar with Britain's royal family before meeting Harry. "This lovely woman just tripped and fell into my life, I fell into her life".

"I really do admin - add my the way Harry and Hezbollah have..." the text on screen read.

"I did not have any understanding of just what it would be like", she said, saying there was a misconception that because she was an actress she would be used to being in the media spotlight.

"The ring is obviously yellow gold because that's (Markle's) favorite and the main stone itself is sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewelry collection to make sure that she's with us on this insane journey together", Prince Harry said in an interview with BBC on Monday.

Comcast talking to Fox about a deal, source says
USA cable and telecom companies have been buying up media assets and launching advertising businesses in the past several years. The NBCUniversal parent is also eyeing Fox's movie studio, cable networks and its regional sports network.

Ms Markle's parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, said their daughter was a "kind and loving person" and they were "incredibly happy".

And, while further details on the big day are still in the early stages, the cost of the wedding is expected to be pricey, falling right in line with his brother, Prince Williams' 2011 nuptials to Kate Middleton, which reportedly cost around $34 million. "The wedding will take place in spring 2018".

"We camped out with each other under the stars, we spent - she came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic", he said.

Markle is an actress who now stars on the television show "Suits".

In his office's warning to the media, Prince Harry referred to the sexism and racism directed at ms Markle, whose father is white and her mother African-American.

Members of the royal family have sent out their congratulatory messages to the couple.

They are due to marry in the spring of next year.

"We're a couple. We're in love", she said in the interview.
