Prince Harry is to marry his American actress girlfriend Meghan Markle, Clarence House has announced.
The prince, fifth in line to the throne, will marry Ms Markle next spring and will live at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace in London.

News of the wedding will prompt a media frenzy that is likely to further test Harry’s relationship with the press. The prince, 33, spoke out about the way Markle, who is divorced, was portrayed when news of the relationship became public just over a year ago.
He condemned some of the newspaper reports and comment pieces as racist – Markle, 36, is mixed race – and sexist.
His spokesman criticized the “racial undertones of comment pieces” and referred to “the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers”.
In the statement, Prince Harry said he was “delighted to announce” the engagement and had received the blessing of Ms Markle’s parents.
The prince and Ms Markle made their first public appearance as a couple this September.
