After Britain’s Clarence House announced the engagement of Prince Harry, a member of the royal family, to American actress Meghan Markle, they sat down with BBC’s Mishal Husain to give their first-ever official interview (above) as a couple. Filmed at the Kensington Palace on the day of the announcement, Prince Harry and Meghan could not stop gushing about each other and talked about how the proposal went down on a “typical, cosy night”, as Markle describes it.

“It was sweet, natural and very romantic. He even got on one knee,” Markle giggled. “I was extremely excited to say yes,” she recollects. “As a matter of fact, I could barely let him finish proposing.” Prince Harry was simply happy that they got a lot of time in private to connect and said the “stars were aligned” when they fell in love.

For Meghan, it was important that she got to know her fiance in an authentic and organic way. As she describes it: “It was really refreshing because everything that I’ve learned about him I learned through him, as opposed to having grown up around different news stories or tabloids.”

With Meghan’s filming schedule and Prince Harry’s commitments it was not the easiest thing to keep a long-distance relationship going, they confess, but “we made it work and now we’re here,” says Prince Harry.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
