What to Know About Meghan Markle's Affordable, Yet Chic Engagement Coat

What to Know About Meghan Markle's Affordable, Yet Chic Engagement Coat

"The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle", Clarence House said in a statement on behalf of Harry's father Prince Charles. The fashion label was so pleased with her support that it has made a decision to name the Fall 2017 piece after her, the group's head said in a Monday statement.

Markle is extremely focused on philanthropic efforts, much like Harry's late mother Princess Diana.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will appear on national TV in the United Kingdom for the first time to discuss their engagement and their 16-month romance.

But the $34 million price tag is still rather small in comparison to their parent's, Princess Diana and Prince Charles' 1981 wedding, which cost an estimated $110 million, when adjusted for inflation today.

The pair were introduced in July 2016 by mutual friends in London, Markle confirmed in September.

The royal couple announced their engagement overnight local time, 16 months after they started dating.

"It was definitely a set up - it was a blind date", Markle said.

"But you know with the ring and with everything else that's going on I'm sure she's..."

"I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her", he said.

In the couple's first broadcast interview, the fifth in line to throne said he asked the United States actress to marry him while they were alone a "few weeks ago".

"I did not have any understanding of just what it would be like", she said, saying there was a misconception that because she was an actress she would be used to being in the media spotlight.

The sleek coat Markle stepped out in is by Canadian brand Line The Label-whose site already temporarily crashed just minutes after the engagement photo call took place (the power of royal style). Kate Middleton memorably became the Duchess of Cambridge when she married Prince William in 2011.

"Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person", they said.

The "Suits" actress, wearing a white coat and nude high heels, said she was "so very happy" as she held Harry's hand and showed off her diamond engagement ring.

"Now it's time to work as a team with you", she said as she turned to Prince Harry.

"What I would also like to say is that I really do admire the way that Harry and his brother have drawn attention to mental health conditions all across the country".

Members of the royal family have sent out their congratulatory messages to the couple.

They will marry in the northern Spring of 2018.
