If you haven't heard by now, let me be the first to deliver you the grand news: Prince Harry is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Meghan Markle and boy, oh boy, are people excited about it. Naturally, every member of The Royal Family is thrilled for Harry and Meghan, but, if I'm being honest, I don't think anyone is as excited about the couple's engagement as their American fans. That's right, in addition to be being gorgeous and smart, Harry's new fiancé is biracial and American, and tweets about Meghan Markle being American prove U.S. fans are through the roof with excitement.

If you think about it, it's really no surprise that Americans are excited about this union; I mean, this means we're kinda rich and royal by association now... right? Looks like the American dream is alive and well, folks.

That being said, tons of people have taken to Twitter to congratulate the couple and to express their excitement. Some are thrilled to have a woman of color in the Royal Family, some are excited Meghan is American, and others are just genuinely happy for the Prince and his fiancé as they get ready to walk down the aisle. One way or the other, it's a time to celebrate.

Of course, in addition to all of our praise on this side of the pond, Harry and Meghan have been receiving heartwarming messages from members of the Royal Family and the British Prime Minister all morning following their announcement.

Indeed, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, sent out a tweet saying, "We're thrilled. We're both thrilled. We hope they'll be very happy indeed," and The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have said they are "delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness"; meanwhile, Prime Minister Theresa May said,

Harry's brother Prince William and his wife, Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge, released a statement of their own, as well, in which they say they are “very excited for Harry and Meghan," and that “It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and see how happy she and Harry are together."

Clearly I'm not the only one ready for more details on the impending royal wedding.

Even Meghan's parents released a statement where they say,

Right now, all we know about the Harry and Meghan's wedding is that it will take place in spring 2018 and that I will be having the steak; if Meghan's ring is any indication, though, then I'm sure this event will be as fabulous as we all expect.
