“We are very excited and delighted for them both. And, we are wishing them all of the happiness at this exciting time,” William said. “And, for me, personally, I hope this means he stays out of my fridge. He’s often been found scrounging off of my food over the last few years.”
William took a more serious tone when it came to his actual feelings about the upcoming royal wedding, “it’s a fantastic process to go through. The engagement and the build up to the wedding. They have a lot of happy times ahead of them. They are very caught up in the moment and I wish them all of the happiness and success in planning the wedding. I hope it goes very well.”
On Tuesday, Duchess Catherine shared her excitement during an event in London.
“William and I are absolutely thrilled,” the duchess said. “It’s such exciting news. It’s a really happy time for any couple, and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment.”
On Nov. 27, the couple announced they were engaged in a statement shared on Kensington Palace’s official social media pages.
His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle. 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 couple will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.
The couple are planning for a May 2018 wedding.

SOUTH LANARKSHIRE, Scotland — A castle in Scotland has lasted for 500 years but the property is apparently no match for an angry badger. Yes, you’ve read that right. An angry badger shut down tourist access to a tunnel at Craignethan Castle, the BBC reported.
Officials allowed the public access to the rest of the 5-century-old building but the tunnel was closed not only for people’s safety, but also for the badger’s, officials told the BBC.
The badger apparently did some damage to the masonry of the castle before it left the building either Friday night or Saturday morning on its own accord.
#badgerupdate While our furry friend left the building over the weekend, we can confirm the #CraignethanCastle cellar tunnel remains closed this week. Our work team on-site need to repair some of the stone masonry the badger damaged. The rest of the castle is open for visitors. pic.twitter.com/MgmJVObWnt— Historic Scotland (@welovehistory) April 18, 2018
The animal left after castle staff members tried cat food and honey to coax it out, the Guardian reported.
Thank you to all our friends and followers for sending through their #badger tips. We now know badgers much prefer peanuts and even bananas, over cat food. If your castle tunnel is experiencing similar problems, remember the @ScottishSPCA can assist with animal welfare enquiries. pic.twitter.com/9iVqVI1LYV— Historic Scotland (@welovehistory) April 18, 2018
Castle staff members who run the property’s Twitter account had a little online fun, posting a GIF image of dancing badgers when they announced the tunnel’s closing.

If you're heading to #CraignethanCastle over the next few days you might find the Cellar Tunnel closed due to the presence of a very angry badger. We're trying to entice it out with cat food & send it home to #chilloot https://t.co/K4C2lA84xD pic.twitter.com/nTuC9VPOuo

— Belgium's Planckendael Zoo on Wednesday (April 11) welcomed its third baby elephant this year, a boost to the zoo's breeding program of Asian elephants.
The new arrival, still without a name, became the first male Asian elephant to be born at the zoo this year.
On his feet within fifteen minutes of his delivery and now walking well, the newborn is perfectly healthy, the zoo said.
