Prince Harry Proposed at Home While Cooking Chicken, and More From The Couple’s BBC Interview
If you’ve been as obsessed with the royal engagement news today as several of us around here are, you’re going to want to watch this. The BBC sat down with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in their Kensington Palace cottage and got the details of the engagement, what it was like meeting the Queen, and more.
Their first ever joint interview follows in the footsteps of William and Kate, who gave one to the BBC after their engagement in 2010.
If you’re wondering how Harry popped the question, it was actually during a cozy night at home—something we can totally get behind.
“We were roasting chicken,” Meghan told BBC’s Mishal Husain, as transcribed by People. “It was just an amazing surprise. It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got down on one knee.”
“It was a really nice moment — it was just the two of us. I think I managed to catch her by surprise,” Harry said.
“Yes, as a matter of fact I could barely let you finish proposing!” Meghan responded. “I said, ‘Can I say yes now!'”
About the engagement ring Harry designed that includes diamonds from Princess Diana, Meghan says:
“I think everything about Harry’s thoughtfulness is – and the inclusion of that and obviously not being able to meet his mom it’s so important to me to – to know that she’s a part of this with us.”
Harry said that dog-lover Meghan was an instant hit with some very important puppers, the Queen’s beloved corgis.
“The corgis took to her straight away,” he said, while Meghan replied, “They were laying on my feet during tea!”
