Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are sharing the sweet details of the royal’s proposal — and it was “very” romantic!

The newly-engaged couple sat down for their first-ever joint interview together on Monday, just like Prince William and Kate Middleton did following the news of their engagement in November 2010.

According to the couple, the proposal happened a few weeks ago at their cottage in Kensington Palace.

“It was a cozy night,” Meghan said. “We were roasting chicken. It was just an amazing surprise. It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got down on one knee.”

Harry added: “It was a really nice moment — it was just the two of us. I think I managed to catch her by surprise.”

Meghan then excitedly added: “Yes, as a matter of fact I could barely let you finish proposing! I said, ‘Can I say yes now!’ ”

The royal couple were interviewed by BBC News broadcaster Mishal Husain, followed by a documentary called Harry And Meghan: A Royal Engagement on BBC1.

Meghan also showed off her new diamond engagement ring, which Harry designed himself.

During William and Kate’s interview, the prince revealed he popped the question a few weeks before their interview while the two were vacationing in Kenya with friends. While they had been discussing an impending engagement for a while, Kate was still surprised when the big moment arrived.

“It was a total shock when it came,” Kate said. “There’s a true romantic in there.”

William added, “As every guy out there will know, it takes a certain amount of motivation to get yourself going. So I was planning it and then it just felt really right out in Africa. It was beautiful.”

Will and Kate also discussed their relationship’s roots, starting with when they met as students at the University of St. Andrews. William said that they were friends for a year before they started dating, and after a laugh or two, things started “to blossom.”

Kate admitted that when she first met William’s father, Prince Charles, she was “really nervous,” but that the Prince of Wales was welcoming and friendly from the start.
