Some Americans get downright nostalgic for the monarchy following adorable engagement between "Suits" star Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
The prince said he was "thrilled" to be marrying the "Suits" star in a royal wedding scheduled for sometime next spring, The Guardian reported. Palace aides are expected to announce further details on Tuesday regarding the wedding and the first royal engagements for the happy couple.
The news came as a welcome distraction for American stars in Hollywood and beyond, since they've been otherwise focused on a series of escalating political scandals involving President Trump and could maybe use some magic in their lives -- even if it involves an antiquated monarchy that the United States fought a war to get out of.
Of course, the congratulations were warm and sincere from Markle's co-stars and colleagues on "Suits," who couldn't be happier for the future princess:

Meanwhile, Barack Obama and his wife offered their blessings and probably started getting ready for a spring vacation in England, while Hollywood types gleefully dug into the implications of a British prince marrying a biracial American actress.

My favorite part of all of this is that Queen Elizabeth watches Suits.— billy eichner (@billyeichner) November 27, 2017
*Whispers* It’s weird to still have a royal family in 2017 *ducks*— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) November 27, 2017
Prince Harry's kids will be Americans. What if one grows up to be president and is in line for the throne at the same time? Brits are playing long-ball here, but it's a smart move. They want America back and this is how they'll do it.— Greg Pollowitz (@GPollowitz) November 27, 2017
Prince Harry and Meghan are the adorable, fairy tale romance we didn’t even know we needed. Perfect timing, lovebirds! https://t.co/lioUCL1pkB— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) November 27, 2017

Prince Harry called to say that he was PROBABLY going to ask me to marry him, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!— Katy Brand (@KatyFBrand) November 27, 2017
I respect Prince Harry for being the first member of the Royal Family to marry someone he doesn't share any DNA with.— John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) November 27, 2017
Can’t Prince Harry and his American girlfriend run our country? They seem nice.— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) November 27, 2017
That Prince Harry engagement announcement should come with a trigger warning for mixed folks. I’ve already seen 3 hot takes on how mixed kids will save/improve/calm down the royal family.— Lexi Alexander (@Lexialex) November 27, 2017
Can’t wait for Trump’s pressed tweet about how he’s turning down an invitation to the royal wedding and Buckingham Palace’s subsequent tweet that they never invited him— Ira Madison III (@ira) November 27, 2017
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle met on a blind date, a mutual friend set them up... No offense, but I need better friends. 😉— Johanna Fuentes (@jfuentes) November 27, 2017
I don’t know why I’m so happy about Meghan Markle going from successful actress to a real, live princess.— Ashleigh Murray (@iamamurray) November 27, 2017
It’s me - I want to be a princess.
