Media captionMeghan Markle has been shown that Prince Harry proposed on a Sunday night at home

Prince Harry told me that he and US actress girlfriend Meghan Markle fell in love “so incredibly quickly” and it seemed proof that the “stars were aligned”.

The fifth in line to the throne was speaking after the couple announced their participation and plans to marry in springtime 2018.

The couple told the BBC’s Mishal Husain they are complying with on a blind date and neither was aware of the fact much about each other.

Prince Harry said “beautiful” Ms Markle “just junketed and fell into my life”.

He accepted Ms Markle and his late mom, Diana, Princess of Wales, would then be “thick as thieves … best friends”.
