And William's proposal to Catherine was so romantic!
In the light of the sunset, at the foot of Mount Kenya, in the surrounding of wild nature...

Yes, that had to be one of the most romantic proposals in one of the most glorious locations in the world.

I would agree, partially because I'm not that good at sport!

There'd be nothing romantic about dropping the ring and having to crawl on your hands and knees looking for the ring on the floor or under the furniture!

I love Juan Carlos' proposal! It's quite romantic in a way and funny all at the same time. I love it and want it to happen to me that way now, haha.

William's proposal to Catherine was lovely and a lovely setting.

Prince Edward proposed to Sophie in the Bahama's when they went on holiday in December 1998. Sophie obviously accepted and Edward asked her father's permission upon their return between Christmas and New Year. He didn't propose with a ring though!

I read that Bertie (George VI) had to ask Elizabeth 3 times before she said yes. Is this true?

He initially proposed to Elizabeth in 1921, but she turned him down, being "afraid never, never again to be free to think, speak and act as I feel I really ought to". In February 1922, Elizabeth was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Albert's sister, Princess Mary, to Viscount Lascelles. The following month, Albert proposed again, but she refused him once more. Eventually, in January 1923, Elizabeth agreed to marry Albert, despite her misgivings about royal life.

Persistence paid off and their relationship turned out to be one of the most beautiful in the Windsor family history.

I'm not knocking their proposal n anyway as it must have been so unbelievably romantic... The sunset in Kenya! I mean, wow!

It seems like so many people get engaged under the sunset -so, I was hoping to hear something more fun, but I will say, it's rather exotic so to speak.

I hope to be a sunset girl myself, as I am a sucker for sunsets!

Fun? What about Lord Frederick Windsor's proposal to Sophie - he wrote "Will you marry me?" on a scrabble board! That's fun.

Now that is my kind of proposal. I'm the ring in the glass kind of gal. William's proposal was generic IMO.
