With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent announcement of their engagement, we thought this would be a great time to take a look back at all the other exciting royal family engagements.
From Princess Diana’s fiancé’s announcement faux pas to how the queen said ‘I do,’ here’s a look back at some of the best royal family engagements.
The last royal engagement belonged to Prince William and Kate Middleton. William popped the question in Africa after eight years of dating (and after briefly breaking up prior to getting engaged).
Why did the prince choose Africa? “I regularly daydream. Africa is definitely one of the places I go to. It does completely settle me down. [Kate] understands what it means to me being in Africa, and my love of conservation,” he said during an interview with CNN. He mentioned he didn’t plan the proposal very far in advance, but he made sure he was ready with his mother’s ring when the time was right.
