All very exciting.
However, not everyone is delighted by the engagement news.
Some fans of Meghan Markle are pretty annoyed by the timing of the announcement – which coincides with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s royal tour in Africa.
One person tweeted: “Convenient for Beatrice to announce her engagement while Harry and Meghan are on tour. Great timing I must say.”
Another added: “Remember after the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, later on they announce the wedding of Eugenie. Lol… now after Baby Archie’s first appearance they announce this upcoming wedding.”
