The royal wedding is going to be held next spring, according to an announcement from Clarence house. The famous couple first started dating in May 2016 and have been together since. Their relationship has not been taken well by the media and there has been even racial judgement towards Meghan Markle whose mother is black and father is white. But the pair seem happy together and will get married before the arrival of William and Kate's third child is due (April 2018). Here's what the family had to say about the happy news.
