This man proposed in front of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and Meghan couldn’t handle the cuteness
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made one of their last appearances as senior members of the royal family on Thursday, March 5th. They attended the Endeavor Fund Awards, during which veteran Danny Holland accepted the Recognising Achievement Award. But before heading offstage, Holland took a moment to propose to his girlfriend—and the Duchess of Sussex’s heart almost melted into a puddle.
The Endeavor Fund was set up by Prince Harry back in 2012, and aims to aid the recovery of wounded armed service personnel and veterans by way of sports and “adventurous challenge[s],” as the Endeavor Fund’s webpage states. According to People.com, Holland was wounded by an IED blast in Afghanistan. Because of the blast, he suffers with mental health issues.
However, Holland is now working towards becoming a rehabilitation instructor, and was nominated for the Recognising Achievement Award by Mission Motorsport.
When he dropped to one knee to propose to his longtime girlfriend, both Harry and Meghan couldn’t quite contain their excitement.
We don’t know what’s cooler—being seated a few chairs down from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex or getting engaged while in their presence.
This was Harry and Meghan’s first official U.K. outing after announcing they’d be leaving their senior royal positions later this month.
On March 31st, their senior status will be no longer and the couple will begin preparations to move to North America.
Though they didn’t directly address their departure from the royal family at the awards ceremony, Harry told attendees, per BuzzFeed News, “Many of you have told me tonight that you have my back. Well, I’m also going to tell you that I will always have yours.”
Even though they will not be working as members of the royal family, Harry and Meghan will still be involved in the charities and foundations they helped to set up.
Congratulations to Danny Holland and his new fiancé—and congrats to Meghan and Harry. Proposals are always fun to witness.
