Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

As royal proposals go, Prince Harry kept it very humble. During a BBC interview, the couple explained the context for their very low-key engagement at home in Nottingham Cottage. Prince Harry said: “It happened here at our cottage; just a standard typical night for us,” to which Meghan interjected: “Just a cosy night, it was – what we were doing just roasting chicken… and it just – just an amazing surprise, it was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee.”

George and Amal Clooney

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, George reminisced about his super-sweet proposal to Amal in 2014. He said: “After dinner, I told her there was a lighter to light the candle in the drawer, and she reached back and pulled out a ring.” The star was down on one knee and he also put together a playlist with his late aunt Rosemary Clooney’s songs on it. He admitted: “It was 20 minutes of me on my knee, waiting for her to say yes, because she was so shocked.”

Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling

Ellie Goulding recalled her low-key engagement whilst on The Jonathan Ross Show: “We were having maybe a couple of drinks and we were doing a Jigsaw puzzle. He likes them. I think it was quite an easy one. Probably 400 (pieces). Anyway, I think he was getting bored of it and then he proposed. It was quite romantic for some reason.”

Model Emily Ratajkowski’s proposal took place in a restaurant (classic) but with no ring (not so classic) – but when Sebastian fashioned one out of the paperclip which held the bill together, Emily simply couldn’t say no! The couple continued to defy tradition when Emily got married in a jumpsuit at City Hall.
