"Their wedding will be my Super Bowl," one elated Twitter user writes.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged, and Twitter is throwing their engagement party.

The British prince popped the question earlier this month, but the news was announced Monday via Harry's father, Prince Charles, in a statement released by his office at Clarence House.

"His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle," the announcement read. "The wedding will take place in Spring 2018. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course. His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle's parents."

The statement added that "the couple will will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace," where Harry currently resides.

The two made their first appearance as an engaged couple on Monday afternoon (local time) and will take part in a broadcast interview, which will air Monday night.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said Harry's grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, are "delighted" and "wish them every happiness."

Meghan's parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, said in a statement released by Kensington Palace that they are "incredibly happy" and "very excited for their future together."

Twitter is just as elated, and what's got users even more thrilled is that the "Suits" star will be the first divorced, biracial, Jewish-American actress to join Britain's Royal Family. See the 17 best reactions to the royal news in the tweets below.
