Markle appeared in the sunken garden at Kensington Palace on Monday in the late November chill, donning the C$799 ($627.11) white wrap coat with oversized collars and cinched at the waist with a knotted belt.

"She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic".

"It was so sweet and natural and very romantic", she said. Set in yellow gold - Ms Markle's "favourite" - the central diamond is from Botswana, where they first spent significant time together. Harry, fifth in line to the British throne, is engaged to Markle, confirming months of rumours that the couple was close to tying the knot.

The two proved their love in an interview with the BBC, with Markle revealing she said "yes" immediately to Prince Harry as he got down on one knee to propose.

A Bank Holiday was declared throughout the United Kingdom in 2011 for the wedding day of Prince William to Kate Middleton, and the nation was given the day off for the Prince of Wales's marriage to Diana Spencer in 1981.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to marry in spring 2018. The iconic domed landmark housed the wedding of Prince Harry's parents Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana Frances Spencer in 1981.

Ms Markle's parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, said their daughter was a "kind and loving person" and they were "incredibly happy". I hope they have a great time and great fun together and having met Harry a couple of times I'm sure they are going to have a great deal of fun together.

The couple met in July 2016 in London, introduced by mutual friends, and the relationship was later confirmed by Harry's office following speculation in the press.

It described nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers, attempts by reporters and photographers to get into her home and the "bombardment" of almost every friend and loved one in her life.

She attended a private primary school before studying at a girls' Roman Catholic college and later graduating from Northwestern University School of Communication in 2003, just as her acting career was beginning.

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

The 36-year-old LA native spoke of her royal relationship for the first time earlier this year telling Vanity Fair: "We're two people who are really happy and in love".

There is a long-running custom barring royals from marrying Catholics and divorcees. Despite its popularity, however, it is speculated that Prince Harry will ditch Westminster Abbey since it was home to the funeral of his beloved mother Princess Diana in 1997.

Like Prince William's wife, Ms Markle will not become a princess in her own right after the marriage.
