Speaking about their engagement a decade ago, Kate told ABC News.

“He’s a true romantic and we had a wonderful holiday in Africa and it was out there in a very quiet lodge and it was very romantic and it was very personal time for both of us.”

“We were out there with friends, so I really didn’t expect it at all. It was a total shock when it came. Very excited!”

The couple currently have three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
