Prince Harry & Meghan Markle are engaged

This is a quick update about the engagement announcement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Clarence House officially made the announcement this morning. I have covered the statements from the Prince of Wales, as well as from Meghan’s parents and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, over on Meghan Markle Review. The newly engaged couple will do a photo call and interview later today, which I will also cover over on the other blog.

Rebecca Deacon getting married, dumping Kate

I’m fairly annoyed that KP hasn’t announced any more engagements for Kate Middleton for March, other than the ones we already know: a Service of Dedication on March 9, and the Paris trip on March 17-18 (whose itinerary has still not been released). The lineup for Commonwealth Day was released and neither William nor Kate is attending (although Harry is), and there is still no word on whether the Cambs will show up to the Irish Guards Parade on St. Patrick’s Day. Kate did a surprising number of engagements in January and February of this year, more than any other year she’s been a royal, but I guess we’re back to the same old routine. Boring. Anyway, there is news regarding Kate’s right-hand woman, Rebecca Deacon. Deacon is leaving Kate’s service after five years.

Prince Carl Philip is engaged to Sofia Hellqvist

The news of Prince Carl Philip of Sweden’s engagement to Sofia Hellqvist came out last Friday, late in the day.  I would have covered it, but the death of my dog and my subsequent depression took precedence.  Anyway, I’m covering it now ahead of an appearance by Kate Middleton later today.  So, Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist are engaged, and planning a wedding for summer 2015.  Yay?  I guess congrats to them, but my sympathies to the Swedes who will now have a former nude model/reality TV star as a representative of their country.  I mean, I know we have some crappy representatives here in the US, but at least we (for the most part) get to vote them out when they do stupid stuff.  Of the engagement, Carl Philip said, “I have the incredible honor of being engaged to this fantastic girl.”  And Sofia said, “Carl Philip is the most humble person I have ever met, which is what made me fall for him in the beginning.  He has one of the most beautiful hearts, he is very warm.”
