What may just be the very last official royal engagement for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was tonight's Endeavour Fund Awards, since they'll be transitioning out of their royal roles, but the night included an impromptu addition that had Meghan rightfully delighted. According to Marie Claire, the event honored the achievements of wounded servicemen and women and included a surprise engagement when one of the honorees proposed to his girlfriend.
This year's Recognising Achievement Award went to Danny Holland, who was involved in an IED blast while in Afghanistan. When he took to the stage, he asked his girlfriend to come up. When she did, he popped the question and the couple was met with a round of applause. Holland managed to get Meghan to clutch her heart and smile.
ITV's Chris Shipp managed to capture it all on video.

The Recognising Achievement Award is "awarded to the individual who has best utilised their endeavour to promote and catalyse their recovery," according to the Endeavour Fund website.
The Sussexes aren't slowing down before March 31, which will mark the official start of their transition from senior royals to normal civilians that just happened to have been royal. Marie Claire adds that they're expected to attend the Mountbatten Music Festival and Monday's Commonwealth Day Service. That will mark a public reunion between the Sussexes and the Cambridges, the queen, and Prince Charles.
