A Royal Engagement

December 1, 2017

Once upon a time, a prince named Harry met an actress named Meghan. They fell in love and soon lived happily ever after. That might not be the traditional fairytale story, but it is a real love story between England’s Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle.

The British Royal Family announced earlier this week that Prince Harry is engaged to Meghan Markle, and the wedding will take place in May of next year.

But that’s not the only event that the Royal Family is celebrating next spring—Prince Harry’s older brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will be expecting their third child in April. A royal wedding and another royal baby—now that’s a lot to be cheerful for!
