Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Reveal Romantic Details About the Proposal
It's finally official: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged, and their proposal story is beyond romantic.
While they shared the announcement with the world on November 27, the couple apparently got engaged earlier this month over roast chicken.
During a sit-down interview about their engagement, Meghan and Harry took turns telling their proposal story.
Prince Harry revealed that when he popped the question, he and Meghan were at Kensington Palace. It was "just a standard,
Prince Harry, ever the jokester, interrupted his bride-to-be, "Trying to roast a chicken."
"Trying to roast a chicken," Markle continued. "And it was just—just an amazing surprise, it was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee."
Meghan shared she could hardly let Harry finish proposing before saying yes.
“I was like, ‘Can I say yes now?’”
“It was a really nice moment, it was just the two of us and I think I managed to catch her by surprise as well," Prince Harry said.
Harry, of course, had to let his grandmother the Queen know beforehand—that's royal protocol as the prince is fifth in line to the throne—and he apparently asked Markle's parents, Doria Ragland and Thomas Markle, for their blessing as well.
At the photocall in the Kensington Palace gardens following their engagement announcement, Harry, 33, was asked when he knew Meghan, 36, was the one. The "the very first time we met" came his quick reply.

When asked how they were feeling after sharing the exciting news, Harry replied: "Thrilled." A moment of levity came when the Prince made a joke about London's overcast skies."I'm just so glad it's not raining!"
A beaming Meghan, who wore a belted white wrap coat by Line the Label, thanked the assembled journalists and told them that she was "so happy."
While a wedding date hasn't been set just yet, Kensington Palace confirmed we can look forward to Meghan and Harry's nuptials in spring of 2018.
