Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have given their first interview since their engagement was announced.

In the couple's first broadcast interview, the fifth in line to throne said he asked the USA actress to marry him while they were alone a "few weeks ago".

In their first broadcast interview since announcing the news earlier on Monday (Nov 27), Harry and Markle held hands as they discussed the moment of their proposal and their courtship.

It is set to be a busy spring for the royal family, with the wedding and the arrival of a new child for William and Kate providing light relief from the dour political headlines as Britain negotiates Brexit.

"Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family".

After the couple had met for their first date they organised to see each other the following day, and Harry said he knew Markle was "the one" immediately.

It was "just a cosy night. trying to roast a chicken and it just - just an wonderful surprise".

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also condemned the attack and expressed solidarity with Egypt .

Asked whether it was an instant yes, she continued: "I could barely let [Prince Harry] finish proposing, I was like 'can I say yes?'"

"When did I know she was the one?"

And it was an instant "yes" from Ms Markle.

Markle showed off her three-stone engagement ring set in yellow gold, which features a diamond from Botswana and two other gems from the collection of his mother, Diana, who died in a vehicle crash in 1997.

Prince Harry said his mother would have been "over the moon, jumping up and down" at the engagement and "best friends with Meghan".

Exasperated by the media frenzy, the palace also released an extraordinary statement attacking the "sexism" and "racism" directed at Markle, who is of mixed race.

She was born in Los Angeles in 1981.

Markle spoke to Vanity Fair in September about being "in love" with the Prince.

The home has been owned by the royal family since 1689, when King William III and Queen Mary II purchased it for £20,000.

However, they all agreed that in this case, the ring is "priceless" due to its ties to Princess Diana.

Harry's brother, William and his wife, Catherine, who also reside at Kensington Palace, shared their joy at the impending union on Monday.
