Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement, congratulatory messages have been pouring in, including one from Meghan’s parents.
A statement by Miss Markle’s parents Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland said:
“We are incredibly happy for Meghan 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.”

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are also “delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness”, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said.
Prince Harry’s brother, Prince William and his wife Kate also added: “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.”
Harry, 33, has been dating the Meghan, 36, since the summer of 2016. Their 16-month whirlwind romance blossomed when they met through mutual friends in London and the pair have been almost inseparable in recent months, with Miss Markle said to have virtually moved in to Harry’s home at Kensington Palace.
