But fans were quick to point out two very strange issues surrounding the new couple’s engagement.

Couple Unknowingly Plan Identical Proposal On The Same Day, Say ‘Yes’ In Unison

A Texas couple were in for an amazing surprise when they realized they had both planned to pop the question with identical proposals.

After a year of dating, Tori Monaco and Berkley Cade both believed it was time to take their relationship to the next level.

According to Buzzfeed News, the couple had met online and immediately knew their relationship was meant to last.

“We are each other’s first same-sex relationship, so we were blown away by our ability to connect with each other immediately and find the happiness we had been looking for,” Monaco said.

The senior at the University of Texas at Austin decided there wasn’t a reason to wait and enlisted Cade’s best friend to help her pick out an engagement ring. She then asked Cade’s mother Kristy for advice on how to pop the question to the love of her life.

Little did she know, her partner had been planning the same surprise.

Cade, who is stationed in the Air Force in Texas, had also been consulting her mother on the perfect way to propose.

Kristy had told both the lovebirds their upcoming visit to Cade’s family home in Seattle, Washington would be the perfect opportunity to propose. They agreed the grand gesture would take place during a game of Pictionary.

“[Kristy] said she was planning a fun game night already, so I could do it then so Berk wouldn’t be suspicious,” Monaco said. “I said great, I could incorporate it into charades, and she said how about Pictionary!”

Monaco said her future mother-in-law was the mastermind behind the pair’s mutual proposal.

While the TV host and his new fiance have only known each other for a short time, it’s obvious that Carey is head-over-heels in love with Harwick.

This will be the first time Carey, a notable bachelor, has walked down the aisle. But it isn’t his first engagement.

Princess Diana’s Astrologer Says Harry’s Romance With Meghan Was Written In The Stars

Whether or not you believe in fate, you have to admit there’s something magical about Prince Harry’s whirlwind romance with actress Meghan Markle.

The couple have been together for less than two years, but they already seem deeply in love, especially whenever they’re spotted out in public stuck together at the hip.

News.com.au

Celebrity astrologer Debbie Frank has her own explanation for the famous couple’s close bond: she says that Markle’s presence was already written into the prince’s future when he was just six years old.

We’ve already analysed the newest royal couple’s relationship based on their star signs, but the predictions weren’t so rosy.

Before the engagement was announced, astrologer Susan Miller warned that their conflicting signs – Harry is a Virgo, Markle is a Leo – could cause friction. Not only is the actress an American, but she’s also one of the only Fire signs in a family of mainly Earth and Water signs.

Miller warned the young couple “couldn’t be more different,”and said their “love affair is going to take some time to develop into a long-term success.”

But of course everything seems to be going well for the couple now, and Debbie Frank isn’t surprised. After meeting the late Princess Diana in 1989, the astrologer managed to chart the young prince’s future, and her predictions seem to be coming true.

Meghan Markle’s Half-Sister Says She’s Still Waiting For Her Wedding Invitation

Two weeks after the happy couple announced their royal engagement at Kensington Palace, one of Meghan Markle’s closest relatives says she’s still waiting for her wedding invite.

Details about Prince Harry’s upcoming wedding to the TV star are beginning to trickle out as the big day approaches. We’ve learned about the traditions they’ll follow, the expected date and location, and what this wedding means for Markle’s future. But it seems there’s either more planning to be done, or someone close to Markle has been left out of the ceremony.

Grant, 51, has multiple sclerosis.Splash

In a new TLC documentary called When Harry Met Meghan: A Royal Engagement, the future Duchess’s half-sister Samantha Grant talks openly about her relationship with Markle.

Markle with her parents, Thomas and Doria.

Markle’s parents are Thomas Markle, a cinematographer and lighting director who introduced her to show business, and Doria Ragland, a clinical therapist and yoga instructor. Grant is Thomas’s daughter from a previous relationship, and she is 17 years older than Markle.

Grant says that she helped to raise her half-sister while Markle was growing up in California, and remembers Markle as a bright and thoughtful girl, who seemed destined to become a royal someday.

But Grant’s history of speaking out to the media may have driven a wedge between her and Markle.

Guy’s Proposal Technique Would Have Had Most Women Fuming, Does He Know Something We Don’t?

How much would you put up with in the name of love? Obviously, this man’s fiancée has the patience of a saint, because she was able to weather his practical jokes and antics throughout one very emotional evening.

It turns out, Jordan Halland was planning on proposing to his girlfriend, Summer, but found out she had caught wind of the plans. So he decided to give her the runaround and try and shake off any suspicion.

And it was quite the performance!

It starts out with him setting up a camera at his house, before taking his girlfriend out to eat. Once she is ready to go, he kneels down in front of her, says “I wanted to do this later but I think I should just do it now,” and then…..ties his shoe.

Okay, she was a little miffed, but they laugh it off and head out for their dinner.

They get to their favorite restaurant and before their food gets to the table, he stands up and makes an announcement to the whole dining room.

“Excuse me,” he says. “On our first date, we came here because we love sushi.” But then…. “And we still love sushi. Thank you.”

Oh dear! I couldn’t imagine holding out much longer. But this devious guy had one more trick up his sleeve…

“His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms Meghan Markle,” read the statement.

After months of speculation, the news that everyone has been waiting for was delivered, and a spring royal wedding is in the works.

“Prince Harry has informed The Queen and other close members of The Royal Family,” the statement continued. “Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents.”

The couple started dating after meeting in Toronto, where the Suits actress lived and worked, while Harry was promoting the Invictus Games in 2016.

“We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception,” the actress told Vanity Fair.

After the news of their engagement broke, the couple made their first public appearance and the photos are priceless.

Newly Engaged Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Make Their First Official Appearance (Photos)

On November 27, the world awoke to the news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement.

The pair met in Toronto, Canada and had been dating for almost two years before making the decision to tie the knot. After receiving blessings from The Queen and Meghan’s parents, Prince Harry proposed to Meghan in London earlier this month.

Clarence House confirmed the joyous occasion in a statement this morning.

“His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms Meghan Markle,” read the statement.

“Prince Harry has informed The Queen and other close members of The Royal Family,” the statement continued. “Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents.”

Their family members, including The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan’s parents, also shared some sweet words about the couple’s engagement.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip said they are “delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness.”

E! News

“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,” read a statement from Meghan’s parents.

Prince William and Kate 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.”

It was also revealed that the pair will wed in Spring 2018, and will make Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace their home.

Just a few hours after the happy news broke, Prince Harry and Meghan made their first official appearance as an engaged couple. They stepped out at Kensington Palace, posed for photographs and gave short statements.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Officially Engaged

Following months of speculation, on November 27, Clarence House confirmed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement.

The couple, who started dating in 2016, met in Toronto, Canada while Harry was promoting the Invictus Games. The details of how they were introduced are unclear, but according to sources close to both Harry and Meghan, they “fitted in right away.” The pair kept their relationship under wraps for a while before making it known to the public.

“We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception,” the actress told Vanity Fair.

Business Insider

Unfortunately, not everyone was supportive of their relationship, and six months into it, the Palace and Prince Harry were forced to release a statement to address the hostile and racist comments.

“Some of [the drama] has been hidden from the public—the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother having to struggle past photographers in order to get to her front door; the attempts of reporters and photographers to gain illegal entry to her home and the calls to police that followed; the substantial bribes offered by papers to her ex-boyfriend; the bombardment of nearly every friend, co-worker, and loved one in her life,” read the statement.

“It is not right, that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm,” it continued. “He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game.’ He strongly disagrees. This is not a game—it is her life and his.”

Thankfully, Harry and Meghan weathered through the storm, and were spotted together at a friend’s wedding in Jamaica a few months later. They were also photographed while on vacation in the South African country of Botswana this past August, but it wasn’t until September that the couple made their first official public appearance as a couple. The lovebirds showed up hand in hand to one of the events at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto.

Now, a little over two months since they made their official debut as a couple, Harry and Meghan are planning a wedding and it will happen sooner than expected, according to the official statement.

The dashing groom-to-be popped the question at Disneyland, the couples favorite theme park, after showing her a film edited together to show the most romantic moments of Disney and Pixar movies.

So what makes her ‘The One’ for him?

‘The View’ Co-Host Announces Her Engagement On Air

Congratulations are in order for Meghan McCain and her new fiancé, Ben Domenech!  

The View co-host is the daughter of GOP Senator John McCain, who was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year.

On Oct. 23, her father made a guest appearance, where he was asked if he approved of his daughter’s then-boyfriend.

“He’s a jerk,” the senator joked, prompting Meghan to squeal Domenech was “going to kill me!”

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_yp6Zw5IXs?feature=oembed]

“Actually, he’s a very fine man,” he clarified. “I’m very proud and very happy that they’re so happy together.”

In November 2016, McCain had announced she had independent conservative candidate Evan McMullin for president. She recently lashed out over a report stating President Donald Trump had physically mocked her father behind closed doors. It’s claimed he was imitating the senator’s “thumbs down” gesture he made on the senate floor.
