The couple stayed by each other’s sides throughout the exchange and though they didn’t kiss in front of the cameras, Harry was seen wrapping his arm around Meghan as they retreated back into the Palace.
Harry and Markle confirmed the engagement rumors earlier in the day, noting that he proposed in early November. They are set to wed in Spring 2018 and will live together in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.
“Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry Has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents,” the statement read.
