ICYMI – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged to be married. Prince Harry, who was known to be a pretty wild bachelor in his day, is officially off the market for good (we’d hope).
While in the past, royal engagements were confirmed in newspapers and reports, it seems as though Twitter is the best place to get our information now in 2017. Don’t believe me? Well, the royal family – including Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and the Queen herself took to Twitter to share their congratulations with Prince Harry and his soon-to-be bride. Meghan Markle’s parents also used Twitter to bid their daughter a “lifetime of happiness.”

Who knew the Queen actually knew what Twitter was at all? Not I. But, don’t worry, besides these way too formal for Twitter congratulations, our regular Joe’s of Twitter were also here to spread some love.
