We’re off to buy a hat.

They shall wed in the spring, and rest of the royal family are delighted for them, as is the general public.

1. It’s like a rom-com come to life

Who’d play the Harry-type character in this film? Eddie Redmayne?

2. In fact, Meghan was even in a few rom-coms

The Dater’s Handbook and When Sparks Fly, two made-for-TV Hallmark movies with romantic yet somewhat unrealistic scenarios. She knows the drill.

3. It just goes to show that you never know what life has in store for you

Briefcase lady on Deal or No Deal one year, married to a prince the next. Swings and roundabouts! Keep hope!

4. People are pointing out that Harry’s stag will probably be… mad

This is the man who played ‘strip billiards’ in Vegas. He doesn’t do things by halves.

5. But they’re celebrating Britain’s first biracial princess*

*OK, so Meghan’s title will probably be more like Duchess of Such-and-such, but we won’t get into technicalities.

6. Many people are discovering that they’re actually hugely invested in this wedding


7. Though not quite as much as they are invested in Jeremy Kyle

ITV interrupted today’s show to broadcast the news of the engagement. This was not a popular move.

8. There’s been quite a bit of Suits discussion…

Namely: Will it come back at all? And is Meghan finished acting for good?

9. Speculation about which castmembers and celebrities will be in attendance…

Meghan is friends with Serena Williams, for god’s sake. The star power at this wedding will be off the charts.

10. …And of course: Hat chat

Please let us never forget the hat Princess Beatrice wore to William and Kate’s wedding. What have you got planned for this one, Bea?

11. David Walliams said what scores of women had been feeling

12. Seriously: Many a dream has crumbled today

Maybe start looking into the royal families of other European countries. Don’t give up.

13. But everyone is awful excited, mainly

14. And the Brits are mainly wondering if they’ll get a day off for the wedding

Meghan will sort it for ye. We’re sure of it.
