Queen Victoria had to propose to Prince Albert, because she was higher than him.

Prince Edward proposed to Sophie in the Bahamas's just before Christmas in 1998.

Will proposed to Kate at a log cabbin at the base of Mt Kenya when they were on a safari.

Andrew proposed to Fergie at Floors Castle, said to be where they shared their first kiss.

Daniel proposed to Victoria in the gardens of Drottingham palace.

In Spain there seems to be an official engagement ceremony that takes place. I assume Felipe would have asked Letizia privately before that but cant find any details on that. The official ceremony was at Pardo palace.

Contrary to a movie that showed him proposing on the side of a road in Tasmania, Fred proposed to Mary on a vacation he planned to Rome.

MM and Haakon all I can really find is they were living together for some time before an engagement was announced, cant find any detail.

WA is said to have proposed in the gardens in winter time, down on the frozen ice of a pond.

Joachim proposed to Marie when they were on vacation in Turkey.

Madeleine would only say Chris proposed in October. In the engagement interview she said they wanted to keep any details private.

CP proposed to Sofia on her way to work. Exact location they have not said, but a special place in the countryside near their summer home.

Cant find anything on those two, like a few of the others. Their engagement came as a shock as almost no one knew Philippe (38 at the time) was even dating. There are accusations it was an arranged marriage, though the couple deny it and say they were dating for years.

Gui and Steph were like Maddie,they chose to keep details of their engagement private in their engagement interview.

Mike is said to have proposed at their house while she was watching tv, he got down on one knee while she was on the sofa. She was so shocked she was laughing but said yes when she stopped.

Peter had planned to propose in a hot air balloon but bad weather stopped it. He instead proposed to Autumn when they were walking their dog in the country side. She said she didn't feel quite beautiful for it in her wellies and wet hair as it was raining, but accepted.

Harry proposed to Meghan at Nott Cott while they were cooking roast chicken!

Prince Philip once hinted that he had proposed to the then Princess Elizabeth at Balmoral, near 'a beloved loch'.

And Bertie Duke of York was visiting St Pauls Walden Bury, the Bowes Lyon country home in Hertfordshire, where he proposed several times to Lady Elizabeth over a period of days and was finally accepted!
