If you’ve not already heard enough about Prince Harry’s engagement to Meghan Markle, you’ll be able to enjoy an interview with the royal couple this evening.

BBC News broadcaster Mishal Husain will speak to them in a special broadcast on BBC1 at 6pm.

This will be followed up by a documentary called Harry And Meghan: A Royal Engagement, at 7.30pm, also on BBC1.

It will apparently take a look at the relationship between Prince Harry and Meghan following the announcement of their engagement…
