It's official - Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are engaged and as the announcement was made this morning Twitter reacted.

The news that the happy couple got engaged in London earlier this month and that their wedding will take place in the spring was met with joy, indifference and memes.

While many were overjoyed by the news, much of British Twitter (outside of news outlets) was dominated by one question - whether or not the royal wedding would mean a day off work.

There were also concerns about her visa application, sadness from those who still thought they were in with a chance with Harry/Meghan, and some who joke the engagement is staged to distract from Brexit.

Here are some of the best reactions:
