Celebrities may have the most expensive engagement rings within reach and the most awesome travel destination goals in the world. But that does not exempt them to feel the same feeling of anxiety, excitement, and panic when it comes to proposing to their special someone. Before that extravagant wedding ceremony and one of the most luxurious honeymoon takes its place, the most crucial question “Will you marry me?” should be asked first.
The latest and the biggest engagement announcement this year 2017 so far is the engagement of Prince Harry of Wales and an American actress Ms. Rachel Meghan Markle. Looking back at how their love story began, Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan first met each other through a friend’s set up or what we have known as “blind date” on July 2016. A few weeks later, they flew off to Botswana, where they have developed their relationship. On October 2016, It was reported that the couple were already dating. It was in November 2016 when the Kensington’s Palace confirms their relationship, but it did not go that well. Prince Harry even slams the press and the public’s harassment towards his girlfriend. A few weeks later, Prince William released a statement supporting his brother, Prince Harry’s decision concerning privacy and the support he needs to protect the people close to him. On December 2016, the two were spotted holding hands in public while watching a West end play and that confirms it all.
On February 2017, the couple had a date night across the pond, paparazzi captured a shot while the two were leaving the Soho house. On March 2017, the couple jet off to Jamaica to attend a wedding of Prince Harry’s friend. They reportedly stayed in an elegant hotel Round Hill Hotel and Villas. On May 2017, after months of speculations, Ms. Meghan Markle attends “Pippa Middletons’ Wedding Reception” as Prince Harry’s date. It has also been reported that Prince Harry asked and got Queen Elizabeths’s permission to propose to Ms. Markle. On August 2017, the couple flew off to Africa on a private getaway and rumors of engagement even circulated. On September 2017, Ms. Markle charmed the cover of Vanity Fair’s October issue where she told the magazine, “We’re a couple, We’re in love, “I’m sure there will be a time when we have to come forward and present ourselves, and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.” They were also spotted in public for the first time together as a couple watching an Invictus Games in Toronto. It was succeeded by a Wheelchair Tennis match wherein they were seated in a front row looking sweet together. Just this November 2017, when Ms. Meghan Markle flew off to London and moved to Kensington’s Palace with Prince Harry. After a week of speculation, the couple already announced their engagement on November 27, 2017.
As soon as a celebrity gets engaged, people would always first look at the diamond on their left hand. Some people with minds full of curiosity would even research the kind and cost of that particular diamond and let themselves feel amazed. On the part of Ms. Meghan Markle as the future bride of Prince Harry of Wales, her ring was a custom made engagement ring which the Prince himself made the design. It features a trio of diamonds. The central stone sits a diamond from Botswana, a country that holds a special significance for the Royal who has frequently visited it since he was a child. It is also a special place where the couple had spent some time together. The two other diamonds are from the prince’s mother, Princess Diana’s diamond collection. The stones were set in a gold band made by the Queen’s jeweler. Without knowledge of the carat size of the diamonds, the value of the ring is still currently unknown.
