Prince Harry quietly proposed to Meghan Markle earlier in November, but didn’t announce the big news until today.
While the prince avoided commenting on how he proposed to Markle during their photo call in Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden earlier in the day, he did admit that romantic.
In an interview with Mishal Husain on the BBC News at Six, Prince Harry revealed that he popped the question a few weeks ago, when the couple were at home at Kensington Palace on “just a standard, typical night for us.”
“Just a cozy night, it was—what were we doing?” Markle paused to ask Harry in the interview. “Roasting chicken and—”
“Trying to roast a chicken,” the Prince interjected.
“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.”
“Was it an instant yes from you?” Husain, a presenter for BBC Radio 4, asked Markle.
Markle said she could barely let Prince Harry finish proposing before saying yes.
“I was like, ‘Can I say yes now?’” she said grinning.
“I had the ring in my finger and I was like, ‘Can I give you the ring?’ and she was like, ‘Oh, yes, the ring!’” Prince Harry said he designed the Cleave and Company ring himself using a center diamond from Botswana surrounded by two diamonds from the personal collection of his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.
“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.
The couple plans to get married in Spring 2018.
