Surprise! Prince Harry Proposed to Meghan Markle While Cooking Dinner at Home

Is this the new approach to beat for popping the question?

What, did you think royalty requires over-the-top gestures to pull of a proposal? For Harry, there were no hot air balloons, no zillions of rose petals, no sky writing, no stadium buyout with gaudy jumbotron takeover. Nope, instead of keeping up with the Kardashians, Prince Harry proposed to now-fiance Meghan Markle sweetly, in an understated way, at home.

In their joint interview, Prince Harry said he proposed earlier this month as part of what otherwise appeared to be a "standard, typical night for us" at his home — NBD, but that would be Kensington Palace — as the pair was preparing a meal of roast chicken, according to the BBC.

And she didn't see it coming: "It was just an amazing surprise. It was so sweet, and natural, and very romantic," the soon-to-be-bride said.

Of course she said yes right away, the couple hugged, and he slipped the ring on. 

"It was a really nice moment. Just the two of us," he said. 

So there you have it — the kind of sweet, intimate proposal that works for certain couples, even high-profile ones (but not Kim and Kanye).
