In a statement, Harry's grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, said they are "delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness." 

And Prince William and Duchess Catherine said, "We are very excited for Harry and Meghan. It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together."

Markle's parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, said, "Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents."
