If you’re expecting some outrageous engagement tale of how the prince rented out an entire city to propose to the duchess, you’ll be sorely disappointed. But if you’re a fan of sweet stories of two people who quite obviously love each other – settle in because the way Harry proposed to Meghan is way too cute. The duchess told “Town and Country Magazine” that he got on one knee when they were enjoying a quiet evening at home roasting a chicken. Of course, he waited until he had the full blessing of both the late queen and Meghan’s parents before he popped the question.
The couple officially announced their engagement in November of 2017, in an official notice that revealed the royal wedding would be taking place in the spring of the following year. During their photo recall at Kensington Palace, one reporter asked Harry when it was that he knew Meghan was “the one.” His response? “The moment I met her.” Could they be any more perfect?
What a Politician
The world of politics has always fascinated Meghan. The interesting (in her eyes) world of politics has played an important role in her personal life as she has always seen this world as a world that leads to change. A world that will make the difference she prays for. She is engaged and is interested in current affairs, and even jokes about running for office (which will not happen now for sure).
Being part of the royal family, one is expected to keep their political opinions to themselves snd not take sides. Apparently, she insisted on keeping her American citizenship when she married Harry, just in case she changed her mind in the future (regarding running for president that is).
Meghan, Mom and the Engagement
Meghan has always had an extremely close relationship with her mom, Doria. In fact, she was one of the few people who knew about her daughter’s engagement before the Prince proposed. According to "People Magazine," Harry, being the perfect gentleman that he is, made sure to ask her for Meghan’s hand in marriage before asking the actress herself. Awww!
The official announcement of the royal engagement was made in late November of 2017. Subsequently, Meghan made an announcement of her own, stating that she would be retiring from the acting industry. Well, yeah! We know that it was always her dream and all, but she accomplished it, and we’d say that she has a lot more on her plate these days, wouldn’t you? As you can imagine, it would be pretty difficult to manage both being a member of the British royal family and an actress in Hollywood.
Check Out That Rock
It’s not uncommon for a new bride to fall in love with the new rock on her finger. You know the drill – posting one too many pictures of themselves holding things close up on social media, along with basically shoving their hands in their friend’s faces to ensure they’ve gotten a good look. But no matter how nice any of them thought their rings were, we’re pretty sure they didn’t have anything on the one that Harry gave Meghan when he proposed in 2017. It’s no wonder the duchess couldn’t stop staring at her fingers.
After all, there are pieces of Princess Diana’s ring in the one she’s wearing. Prince Harry designed Meghan’s engagement ring himself, and he spared no expense – or detail. But unlike most members of the royal family, Harry’s taste is a bit more modern. The prince picked out a trilogy ring, which ended up costing over $150,000. Although, considering the fact Diana’s stones were added, the piece is priceless. The ring has been referred to as the most famous engagement ring in the world.
Leaked Nudes Almost Wreak Havoc
Life hasn't always been a fairytale for Meghan. Before the royal wedding, rumors began circulating that some nude photos of the "Suits" star on vacation were floating around the web. As you can imagine, the late Queen and the rest of the royal family were presumably not pleased about this, but a scandalous photo doesn’t have the same effect in 2019 as it did in 1940. After all, lots of celebrities have dealt with this, including the former first lady of the US, Melania Trump, and even Prince Harry himself.
In fact, Meghan isn’t even the only current Duchess to deal with leaked nudes. Kate Middleton, AKA the Prince of Wales, went through her own media scandal back in 2012 when she was photographed sunbathing topless in the south of France. Things actually got so heated that at one point, there were talks of lawsuits in the works. Luckily, things eventually died down, and everyone lived happily ever after.
