Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Engagement
Harry told Close Staff of it 2 Weeks Ago
The UK Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, wished Prince Harry and Meghan well – after party members booed when reporters asked him about the engagement.
After he gave a speech in Glasgow, Corbyn ignored the booing by activists and said: “I wish them well, I hope they have a great time and great fun together, and having met Prince Harry a couple of times I’m sure they’re going to have great deal of fun.”
Corbyn added: “I really do admire the way that Prince Harry and his brother have drawn attention to mental health conditions all across the country”
“I wish him well, thank him for what he has done on mental health, hope they have a great life together.”
Details of the venue and timing of the wedding are expected to be released on Tuesday with aides only saying it will be “a happy church wedding”.
Prince Harry is understood to have told his close staff two weeks ago that he wanted to make the engagement public today and planning has been underway since then. The couple got engaged earlier this month in London.
The delay in announcement was partly due to Markle needing to finish filming on Suits which she did the week before last. The pair are due to give a broadcast interview this evening after posing for photos this afternoon outside Kensington Palace, where they will live in the two bedroom Nottingham Cottage.
