Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made their first public appearance since their engagement was announced earlier today. The couple appeared at a photocall in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in London on Monday afternoon, where Harry told reporters he knew Markle was “the one” from “the very first time we met.”
Markle, who wore a white coat from Line the Label and a dress from Parosh, said she was “so very happy” as she clutched her future husband’s arm tightly during their brief appearance. They left with their arms around each other.
She showed off a dazzling three-stone ring, designed by Harry himself with at its centre a diamond from Botswana, which his office said was a place special to the couple, surrounded by two diamonds taken from the personal collection of his late mother Princess Diana, Princess of Wales, according to a statement from Kensington Palace. Botswana holds special significance for the couple, who have spent time together there over the past year and a half, Kensington Palace said
