According to a Twitter post by Kensington Palace, Prince William and Kate Middleton are very happy with the news of the engagement. In the statement, Meghan Markle's in-laws-to-be said they enjoyed getting to know her and are excited about the upcoming nuptials.

Prince Harry's grandmother, the Queen of England herself, also congratulated the happy couple and wished them nothing but happiness.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall also said they were 'thrilled' because of the news.

Meghan Markle's parents gave the couple their best wishes.

Prince Charles, Harry's father, told reporters that he was very happy for the couple. The Prince of Wales was actually the one who made the first official announcement that his son and the American actress were engaged.

According to the statement, the wedding is scheduled to take place sometime in spring 2018 but no specific date has been disclosed yet.

While some people might consider the period between the couple's engagement and upcoming wedding to by short, it turns out that this is not unusual for the royal family.

William and Kate were only engaged for seven months before getting married. The Duke of Cambridge's father, Prince Charles, got married to Camilla Parker Bowles just two months after he popped the question. His engagement to Princess Diana lasted five months. So, clearly, spending many months or years planning a wedding is not really something the royal family does.

We wish the engaged couple good luck with their wedding and a happy lifetime together.
