Prince Harry praised Meghan Markle at Commonwealth Youth Ambassador

During his opening speech, Prince Harry said he was "grateful" for his wife-to-be, and she is "hugely excited" to be joining him in his work with the Commonwealth.

Harry's relationship with Sarah fizzled out, with the royal quickly falling head over heels for Meghan.

After being named an Ambassador of the group by his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Harry officially opened the forum on Monday.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said more than 60 percent of the Commonwealth's 2.4 billion people were under the age of 30.

However, the formal guest list of about 600 will be kept to friends and family of the royal family, and no heads of Government have been invited. The Zip Top Cross body bag is by Australian brand Oroton and retails at a surprisingly affordable £171.

The pair will be out in force for CHOGM this week and will attend a Women's Empowerment reception on Thursday, hosted by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, involving charities and organisations that work to promote global gender equality through girls' education.

Following the headline-grabbing proposal, Markle, primarily famous for her role as Rachel Zane in the popular sitcom Suits, was pushed further into the spotlight.

The couple will walk down the aisle at St Mary's Chapel at Windsor Castle, one of the Queen's official residences in located in Windsor. "There is talk of some lace and sleeves and Meghan has been working very closely with the designer who has been sworn to secrecy".

Harry and Markle have already selected an American baker, Claire Ptak, who now owns a London bakery, to create a lemon elderflower cake.

In the weeks leading up to Kate Middleton and Prince William's 2011 wedding, Middleton didn't make a single public appearance with the reigning monarch.

Harry - who is expected to tour the Commonwealth with Meghan, 36, after their wedding - went on to praise the current generation of "young adults" and how they are "connected" with others. Tyler Dooley revealed his potent cannibis creation will be called Markle's Sparkle and he would be "more than happy" to let the royal couple sample it if they ever decide to visit Oregon.
