Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have revealed they plan to start a family in the “near future”.
The smitten couple’s comments came in a joint interview at Kensington Palace to mark their engagement announcement, and as the pair sat side by side they held hands.
When asked by the BBC journalist if they were planning to have children, Harry replied with a smile: “Not currently, no.”
Harry added: “No, of course, you know, I think one step at a time, and hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future.”
Lovestruck Harry, 33, also revealed how he proposed and said he fell for Meghan, 36 the moment they met.
Revealing the depths of his feeling for his bride-to-be the prince suggested they were destined to meet and fall in love, with the royal believing “the stars were aligned, everything was just perfect”.
He described how “this beautiful woman just sort of literally tripped and fell into my life, I fell into her life”.
Harry also said the proposal came a few weeks ago while they were at his home, Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.
The Suits star added: “Just a cosy night, it was – what we were doing just roasting chicken…”
She described it as “just an amazing surprise. It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee”.
The actress went on to say: “As a matter of fact I could barely let you finish proposing, I said – can I say yes now?”
Harry and Markle, who is a divorcee, met in July 2016 after they were introduced through friends.
The pair are to marry in a church wedding in the spring next year.
