Editor's Viewpoint: Sad that Diana not here to share in Harry's happiness

The engagement between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is a Royal love story with a difference. She is an actress and divorcee, and clearly an attractive woman.

The fact that she is an American gives a new dimension to the familiar "special relationship" between the UK and the USA.

We wish the young couple well, though there is a lingering sadness that Harry's mother is not alive to see her younger son so happy today.

However, the poignant references to Diana in the young couple's interview keeps alive the memory of such a loving mother, and also of a remarkable member of the Royal family.
