Prince Harry is to marry his American actress girlfriend Meghan Markle.
The prince, fifth in line to the throne, will marry Ms Markle next spring and they will live at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace, London.
The couple, who have been dating since the summer of 2016, secretly got engaged earlier this month.
In a statement, Prince Charles said he was “delighted to announce” his son’s news and said that Ms Markle’s parents had given their blessing.
Only the Queen and “other close members of his family” initially knew of the engagement, which took place in London.
The announcement, issued by Clarence House, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s official residence, said details about the wedding day would be “announced in due course”.
The engaged couple will appear for photographs outside Kensington Palace on Monday afternoon, and will take part in a broadcast interview in the evening.
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh said they were “delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness”, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said.
Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, said they were “very excited for Harry and Meghan”, adding: “It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together.”
