Harry, one of the world's most eligible bachelors, said he and Markle got engaged earlier this month.

The couple said that they had met on a blind date set up by a mutual friend in London last July and got to know each other while camping in Botswana, South Africa. "He went down on one knee. It was just an amazing surprise," Markle said, adding that the experience was " so sweet and natural and very romantic".
