In their first sit-down interview with BBC News as an engaged couple, Meghan Markle revealed how Prince Harry proposed to her. She said whole thing went down while the two were trying to roast a chicken. That’s right — even princes roast chickens!
Markle described the night of proposal as “cozy,” and Harry said it was, “just a standard typical night for us.” They were making themselves dinner at Nottingham Cottage, their personal home within the grounds of Kensington Palace.
Markle and Harry both noted that Harry could barely finish the proposal before Markle said “yes.”
The proposal happened in early November, just about a year and a half after Markle and Harry first met (they were introduced in July 2016 by a mutual friend).
The pair noted that neither knew much about the other before they met. Markle was mainly concerned about if Harry was kind, and Harry had never seen Suits nor heard of the American actress. But as Markle explained, getting to know each other personally — rather than from the media — was “refreshing” and “organic.”

Some couples have “their song” or “their movie.” But Markle and Harry have “their meal.” Who knew roasting a chicken could be so romantic?
