The British royal family announced on Monday, Nov. 27 that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are officially set to head down the aisle, and naturally, the internet has already begun to weigh in. A quick scroll through Twitter unearths a plethora of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry engagement memes, from those heartbroken that England's most eligible Bachelor is finally off the market to hopeful Brits counting down the days until the wedding so they can take the day off of work.

For those still playing catch up, Markle is an American actor best known for her leading turn as Rachel Zane on Suits. She and Harry, who is fifth in line to the British throne, first began dating during summer 2016 after they were introduced in London by mutual friends, though Harry didn't confirm their relationship publicly until November 2016. He proposed earlier this month, after just over a year with Markle, but told reporters during their debut as an engaged couple that he'd known she was the one "the very first time [they] met." According to Us Weekly, Markle's engagement ring features jewels from Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, who died in a tragic car accident when Harry was only 12.

Clarence House, the residence of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, announced Harry and Markle's engagement, revealing the wedding is set for spring 2018 and that further details will follow in "due course." Shortly afterward, Markles' parents released a statement congratulating the couple, as did other members of the royal family. As far as how Harry proposed, what Markle's official title will be, and other logistics, little else is known, but the internet certainly has a lot of opinions. And because this is 2017, those opinions come in meme form.
