The newly engaged couple appeared for a photo op later in the day, and there were a lot of feelings about the ring, which includes diamonds from Princess Diana.

Also joy about #progress.
Prince Harry marrying an African-American divorced actress could be one of the best things to happen to the Royal Family for a long time. Congratulations to them both.
