Written by Katie Byrne, published 27th nov 2017

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made their first public appearance since announcing their engagement this morning.

The couple's engagement was announced via an official statement released this morning, with the promise the newly-engaged pair would emerge later today for their first public photo-call.

And they haven't disappointed!

Glowing with happiness, the pair appeared at the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace. On prominent display was Meghan's sparkling engagement ring, which was designed by Prince Harry himself and features two diamonds taken from the jewellery collection of Prince Harry's late mother, Princess Diana.

A reporter on-hand at this afternoon's shoot asked the Prince when he knew Meghan was 'the one', to which the besotted Royal answered: "From the very first time we met".
