One of the world’s most eligible bachelors is officially off the market. Britain’s Prince Harry is engaged to American actress Meghan Markle, Kensington Palace announced in a statement Monday.

The wedding will take place in the spring. The venue was not immediately revealed with royal officials saying more details would be announced “in due course.”

Prince Harry is a keen supporter of LGBT rights. He has followed in the footsteps of his mother, Princess Diana, advocating to end stigma surrounding HIV AIDS and encouraging people to get tested.

He recently accepted a posthumous award on behalf of his late mother from gay magazine Attitude. Last year the Prince made headlines by taking a HIV test himself in a Facebook Live video earlier this month, in an appeal for more people to get tested.

Earlier this year the Prince praised the work of Mermaids, a charity which works to support transgender children. The head of Mermaids was invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace, where Prince Harry praised its “amazing” work.
