15 Fascinating Stories of How the Royals Have Proposed
When it comes to a couple's most private moments, a proposal is usually right up there as one of the most intimate — especially for members of the British royal family.

So how exactly do these historic milestones go down? One thing's for sure: there has never been one particular way to pop the question.

One royal bride-to-be even accepted with the words, "Yeah, OK."
Take a look at the romantics, realists, and rebels behind royal proposals from throughout the years.
