Nick and Priyanka then posted a series of pictures from the engagement ceremony that show their families meeting and the couple praying.

Priyanka is a friend of Meghan Markle and attended her wedding to Prince Harry in May.

Two years ago she was named as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine and last year Forbes included her in a list of the world’s 100 most powerful women.

Priyanka and Nick haven’t revealed a date for their wedding but it’s possible Meghan and Prince Harry will be high on the list of invitees.

Similar to Meghan, Priyanka is older than her partner Nick. Unlike Harry and Meghan who only have a three year age gap Priyanka and Nick have 11 years between them.

It’s thought that Priyanka and Nick met through their agents while at the 2017 Met Gala and rumours that they were dating rocketed in May this year when Priyanka attended Nick’s cousin’s wedding.

It’s been a whirlwind so far but the couple appear to be very happy – congratulations to them both!
