Theirs is the fairy-tale romance that has kept the world gripped since love first blossomed back in the spring of 2016. Now HRH Prince Harry has officially confirmed he will marry his actress girlfriend Meghan Markle. Their engagement was announced by Harry's father, HRH Prince Charles, last Monday. Clarence House said in a statement: 'His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms Meghan Markle.'

The couple will wed in spring 2018, with May 19 widely tipped to be the date for their nuptials. Opening up during the engagement in their first joint interview, Harry, 33, and Meghan 36, revealed to the BBC's Mishal Husain how he proposed 'a few weeks ago', about 18 months after they first met. [_____1_____] 'It was just an amazing surprise,' said Meghan, who revealed it was 'an instant yes' from her. 'It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee.' she added.

Recalling the moment, Harry said: 'She didn't even let me finish, she said:"Can I say yes? Can I say yes?" and then there were hugs and I had the ring in my finger and I was like: "Can I - can I give you the ring?" She goes: "Oh, yes, the ring!" He continued: 'It was a really nice moment, just the two of us.'

The ring was designed by Harry, with Meghan describing it as 'beautiful' and 'incredible'. The classic yellow gold band features three stones - the larger, central diamond is from Botswana, where the couple have spent time together in the past 18 months. In a fitting tribute to his mother, the two outside diamonds are from the late Diana, Princess of Wales's personal collection 'to make sure that she's with us on this crazy journey together', explained Harry.

The couple described how they had met on a blind date arranged by a mutual female friend. 'I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her and I thought, right, I need to up my game and make sure I've got good chat,' laughed Harry.

Meghan added: 'I didn't know much about him and so the only thing I had asked her when she wanted to set us up was: "Is he nice?" [_____2_____] And so we met for a drink and then very quickly we said: "What are we doing tomorrow?"

Harry, who admitted that he had never watched Meghan in Suits, continued: 'Then it was "Right, diaries! We need to see how we can make this work." Because I was off to Africa for a month, she was working.'

Their meeting led to two further dates in London, and the besotted prince then persuaded Meghan to join him on holiday in Botswana a few weeks later. 'We camped out with each other under the stars...She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic,' adding: 'It was absolutely amazing to get to know her as quickly as I did.'

On spending a lot of time at home together while dating instead of being seen in public, Harry said: 'We had to reverse the whole process. Cosy nights in front of the television, cooking dinner just the two of us by ourselves in our little cottage, rather than going out for dinner and being seen in public. It's made us a hell of a lot closer in a shorter space of time, without question.'

Meanwhile, Meghan confirmed she has already met Harry's grandmother, Her Majesty the Queen, 'a couple of times' and revealed that 'she's an incredible woman'. Praising his grandparents, Harry said they had been 'wonderful throughout this whole process' and called it 'a miracle' that they hadn't told anyone about the secret romance.

The couple giggled as they revealed that the Queen's pet pooches took an instant liking to Meghan, laying on her feet during tea. 'The corgis took to you straight away,' Harry reminded his fiancée during the interview. 'I've spent the last 33 years being barked at - this one walks in, absolutely nothing, just wagging tails!'

Speaking about Meghan's meetings with other members of the royal family, Harry told his brother HRH Prince William 'was longing to meet her and so was [his wife[ Catherine'. He added that HRH the Duchess of Cambridge 'has been absolutely amazing, as has William as well'.

Harry also described 'a handful of teas and meetings' with his father Prince Charles, praising the wonderful support his family have shown them as a couple. The royal also spoke emotionally about how his late mother would have loved his future wife. 'They'd be thick as thieves, without question,' Harry said. 'I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down - you know, so excited for me...She would have probably been best friends, best friends with Meghan.' [_____3_____]

On a more uplifting note, Harry reflected on his powerful feelings for Meghan: 'The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was confirmation to me that all the stars were aligned, everything was just perfect. This beautiful woman just tripped and fell into my life and I fell into her life.'

Crediting her with having the qualities to take on such a prominent royal role, he said: 'I know that she'll be really unbelievably good at the job part of it,' adding it's 'obviously a huge relief to me as she'll be able to deal with everything else that comes with it. We're a fantastic team, we know we are'.

Meghan added that their shared passion to strive for change in the world was one of the first things they 'connected on'.

Vowing always to put their relationship first, Harry confirmed: 'A couple of months in when I thought, I know that I'm in love with this girl and I hope she's in love with me.'

They glossed over the subject of children, merely saying that they're taking it 'one step at a time', with Harry saying: 'Hopefully we'll start a family in the near future.'

Earlier that day, on the dot of 2pm, Harry and Meghan greeted the waiting media at Kensington Palace for the highly -anticipated engagement photo call.

Holding hands, the besotted couple walked briskly through the formal sunken gardens, one of Diana's favourite places.

Meghan, who looked beautiful in a white belted £450 coat by Line The Label which she wore over a dark green dress by PAROSH, teamed with Aquazzura cream heels and gold and opal earrings from Les Plaisirs de Birks, gave Harry's arm a reassuring rub as the visibly nervous, but elated, prince prepared to announce the news.

Encouraged by Harry, who was dressed in a dark blue suit and tie, Meghan gave the cameras a flash of her stunning engagement ring, which was designed by Harry himself and crafted by British jewellers Cleave & Company, court jewellers and medallists to Her Majesty the Queen.

Adelle Thompson, head of buying at Beaverbrooks, explained: 'The three stones are said to represent a couple's past present and future together - a romantic and meaningful gesture from the prince.'

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe told OK! of Harry's decision to pay tribute to his late mother: 'It's really sweet. Obviously Prince William was able to give his late mother's engagement ring to Kate, so this is a very nice touch from Harry and his version of making that gesture that nod to his mother, which would have been important to him.'

Asked by a reporter if the proposal was romantic, a grinning Harry remarked: 'Of course it was!' Harry also said he was 'over the moon' to be engaged, while Meghan said she was 'so very happy'. When asked when he knew Meghan was the one, he replied: 'The very first time we met'. Harry also jokingly added: 'I'm very glad it's not raining as well!'

Harry then pulled a giggling Meghan closer to him as she placed a perfectly manicured hand on his chest before retreating to the palace to record their interview.

As soon as the news was announced, Meghan's parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland - who divorced when Meghan was six years old - publicly congratulated their daughter, saying in a statement: 'We are incredibly happy for Maghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents. We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.'

Harry's brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, also revealed their delight at the impending royal wedding, commenting: 'We are very excited for Harry and Meghan. It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together.'

In accordance with royal protocol, Harry, who is fifth in line to the throne, sought the approval of his grandmother Her Majesty the Queen before making the news public.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were also quick to send their best wishes, saying they were 'delighted' for their grandson, adding that they 'wish them every happiness'.

Also commenting on their engagement, Duncan, who has worked closely with Harry as a royal correspondent, told OK!: 'Harry has never looked so happy. He's like the cat that got the cream. He's marrying for love. It doesn't matter all this discussion of whether Meghan is suitable or not, clearly the Queen and Prince Charles have allowed this to happen because they can see how serious and happy he is. He's had a long search for the right person.' [_____4_____] He'll be mostly relieved that she said yes! They'll be quite excited. He's followed his brother's blueprint."

While a wedding date has not officially been made public at the time of going to press, it was widely speculated that the event could take place on April 20, a Windsor Castle revealed they would be closed on that date, and the days before and afterwards, although a spokesperson said they could not comment on private events.

St George's Chapel inside Windsor Castle would prove to be the perfect location for their big day - while it is smaller than Westminster Abbey, where Harry's brother William married Kate in April 2011, it is still grand enough to host a high-profile royal wedding.

Duncan, who is the author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, says he would be 'very surprised' if the wedding is not held at St George's Chapel, telling OK!: 'Windsor Castle is the most likely venue.' He adds: 'If Harry wanted to sort his wedding plans out, he would choose a country church and a local pub with very few close mates, but that's obviously not going to happen. That's about as likely as a Las Vegas stag do!'

While not believed to be on the same scale as William and Kate's big day, royal experts are still convinced it will be an impressive affair. Duncan says: 'I think Prince Harry will have a big wedding. I don't think he would want to disappoint the public. On the wedding day they will do a double reception like William and Kate did, which will involve a formal set-piece reception, followed by a slightly more intimate affair with family and friends.' As for the entertainment, Duncan says: 'We could have some American razzmatazz! The question is, how much will belong to royal protocol? Will they have Beyoncé there and have fireworks at midnight, or will it be much more traditional?'

It is believed that the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will perform the wedding after his predecessor Rowan Williams conducted the marriage of Kate and William. The Queen and Prince Philip were also married by the Archbishop of Canterbury, while the religious leader also carried out the christenings of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, proving he has a special relationship with the royals. 

Taking to Twitter following the news of the engagement, Justin wrote: 'I'm absolutely delighted to hear the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now engaged. [_____5_____] It is also assumed that, on the morning of his wedding, the Queen will give Harry the title the Duke of Sussex, meaning Meghan will become the Duchess of Sussex following their vows. The actress, who recently filmed her last series of US legal drama Suits, will automatically become Her Royal Highness and will become a full-time member of the royal family, who will be expected to carry out duties alongside her husband. 'I think what lies ahead is life as a full-time working royal, which comes at a crucial time when the Queen is in her nineties and in need for some of the burden, in particular her foreign overseas travel, to be lifted,' says Duncan, adding: 'She also now has a much bigger platform from which to make change with her charity work.'

As for what this means for the royal family, he adds: 'I think this is an absolute demonstration of how William and in particular Harry have transformed the relevance of the modern British royal family. Harry is so popular. They could have a Shrek-themed wedding and the public would love it. It wouldn't matter!'

The couple's exciting announcement follows months of mounting speculation about their intentions. Rumours of an engagement went into full throttle in mid-October when it was claimed that Meghan spent an afternoon with the Queen at Buckingham Palace, where they chatted and sipped tea.

Meanwhile, last month bookmakers suspended odds on a royal wedding taking place next year, amid claims the prime minister, Theresa may, had been primed for an 'imminent' announcement.

the news comes seven years after Harry's brother William announced his engagement to Kate. Their engagement became public on November 16, 2010, with their lavish wedding taking place just five months later.

With a big wedding to plan, Meghan recently finalised a permanent move from her home in Toronto, cnada, to London, where she now lives with Harry at his two-bedroom Kensignton Palace residence. So far one of her beloved dogs has been moved over to the UK.

Yoko Ono was born the daughter of a banker and a classical pianist in Japan, and on her father's side she has a long line of __________(1) warriors in her blood. The family was very well-off for her youngest years but then came World War II and the fire bombings of Tokyo. Twelve-year-old Yoko ran to safety and took shelter in a bunker underneath the streets of Tokyo. After the smoke had faded away, Japan's economy faded as well and the Ono family was no exception. The family escaped to a mountain town, all their belongings in a wheelbarrow and they had to beg for food on the streets. Yoko's mother even traded an old sewing machine for a bag of rice so that they wouldn't __________(2). Yoko says this is what helped her to understand what it's like to be an outsider and how she developed her aggressive attitude towards the things she wants. Eleven years later, Yoko now 22, married a composer called Toshi, but after a messy divorce she ended up suffering from clinical __________(3) which was so severe that she was placed in a mental institution. Yoko married again to an American jazz musician named Anthony Cox who was instrumental in her release from the asylum. They had a daughter named Kyoko but the marriage quickly fell apart and Anthony changed Kyoko's name to Ruth and ran away with her while they were having a __________(4) battle over her. Eventually, Anthony won custody of Kyoko stating that Yoko was an unfit parent due to drug use. Yoko wouldn't see her daughter for 27 years. Later on Yoko hosted an art exhibit and lo and behold John Lennon showed up. Initially he wasn't very impressed with the art, but then he saw a ladder in the middle of the room and climbed to the top of it and saw just a simple word 'YES' written on the ceiling. He said it resonated with him because all art at that time that he had seen was 'anti this' and 'anti that' and this was a refreshing positive take on art. John and Yoko's friendship grew slowly. Cynthia, his wife at the time, asked him: "Who is this woman calling our house phone?" to which he replied "Oh, she's just calling to obtain money for her __________(5) bullshit". But Yoko was on John's mind. Yoko roughly translated means __________(6) and while John was writing his song Julia he even referred to her in it saying "Ocean child calls me". While Cynthia was away on vacation, John invited Yoko over to his house to do some recording. They recorded all night and as John put it, they made love at dawn. When Cynthia arrived back from holiday, she saw Yoko Ono sitting at her table wearing only Cynthia's white robe, drinking tea with her husband, to which John only said "Oh, hey!". They divorced shortly after that. John and Yoko married and the news dragged her through the mud. There wasn't anything like it. They called her names like __________(7), a 'succubus', a 'gold digger'. Yoko and John's relationship began to shrink under the pressure of his looming deportation from the US and her inability to track down her daughter Kyoko. John travelled back and forth to New York and LA with his assistant and friend May Pang. While in California, he decided that he wanted to buy a house with May Pang and stopped picking up Yoko Ono's calls to him. Yoko eventually tracked John down and convinced him to come back to her stating that she had found a cure for her smoking __________(8). John returned to New York with Yoko and May Pang called "What the hell is going on, where are you?" and Yoko responded to her on the phone: "John is unavailable. He is too exhausted from his __________(9) sessions." Two days later May ran into John serendipitously at a dentist's office. She said he looked stupefied and confused to an extent that May Pang thought John Lennon had been brainwashed. John told her there that his separation from Yoko was now over but Yoko would allow her to see John as a mistress. People started to notice that Yoko was now sitting in on every Beatles recording giving her true sense to the boys who had been performing together for a decade at that point. And now a strange lady was telling them: "Oh, you need more yah, yah, yah or primal __________(10) in your songs". Tensions were so high at the time, they were being screwed out of their own money, Paul's in-laws were getting involved in managing the Beatles and they were working separately on so many songs that they were almost already solo artists. It's difficult to claim Yoko was to __________(11) for the break-up of the Beatles, but some events should be treated as facts. Certain things are just evident, like her treatment of Julian. Not only did she have Julian buy Lennon's letters back at auction like a nobody, but John's will left nothing to Cynthia and Julian. Yoko, instead of doing the right thing and acknowledging that Julian deserved to be part of his father's legacy, monetarily and otherwise, she fought him in court for years until she gradually settled. She even referred to Julian as the 'mistake child' and her son Sean as the 'planned one'. Furthermore, when Paul McCartney asked Yoko, who now controlled 90% of the publishing rights, if she could change the Lennon-McCartney credit on the music to McCartney-Lennon only for the songs he was the sole writer of, she rudely turned him down saying "Stop trying to rewrite history!" After Lennon had tragically passed away, Yoko decided it would be a great idea to take the __________(12) glasses of a recently murdered husband and put it on display as the cover for her first album.
