Prince Harry finally reveals how he proposed to Meghan Markle

Prince Harry has revealed how Meghan Markle said 'yes' immediately after he proposed on one knee while they were cooking a roast dinner during a 'cosy night' in.

In their first joint interview with BBC this evening, Miss Markle, 36, said she did not even wait for the 33-year-old royal to finish the sentence before she said 'yes' - and it was 'so sweet and natural and very romantic'.

They revealed that they first met when they were set up by a female friend - and have tried to see each other every two weeks.


Harry added: 'I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly... All the stars were aligned - everything was just perfect. It was this beautiful woman just sort of literally tripped and fell into my life - I fell into her life.'

Four weeks after they met, Harry persuaded Miss Markle to join him on a five-day break in Botswana. He said: 'We camped out with each other under the stars... which was absolutely fantastic.' They talked about their 16-month relationship and how they never went more than two weeks without seeing one another.

Miss Markle said: 'I don't think that I would call it a whirlwind in terms of our relationship, obviously there have been layers attached to how public it has become after we had a good five, six months almost with just privacy, which was amazing.

'But no, I think we were able to really have so much time just to connect and we never went longer than two weeks without seeing each other, even though we were obviously doing a long distance relationship. So it's - we made it work.'

Speaking of the proposal, Harry said: 'It happened a few weeks ago, earlier this month, here at our cottage; just a standard typical night for us. Just a cosy night, it was - what we were doing just roasting chicken and having ...' Harry said he was 'roasting a chicken, trying to roast a chicken'.

Miss Markle described it as 'just an amazing surprise. It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee.' She added: 'As a matter of fact I could barely let you finish proposing, I said - can I say yes now?'

Prince Harry said: 'She didn't even let me finish, she said 'can I say yes, can I say yes' and then were was hugs and I had the ring in my finger and I was like 'can I - can I give you the ring?'

She goes - 'oh yes the ring'. 'So no it was - it was a really nice moment, it was just the two of us and I think managed to catch - catch her by surprise as well.' The pair are to marry in a church wedding in the spring next year
