How Meghan And Kate Pulled Off Their Fairy-Tale Weddings In Their Own Ways

3. The Announcement: Kate Middleton
In November of 2010, Kate and Prince William announced their engagement. William reportedly popped the question during a vacation in Kenya. In a touching gesture, he proposed to Kate with the same ring his father, Prince Charles, gave to his mother, the late Princess Diana.

"This was my way of making sure that my mother didn't miss out on today," William told the press when the two held a photo session inside St. James's Palace. Kate also described William as a "true romantic" who'd supported her "in good times and also through the bad times."

They had dated on and off from 2003.
