Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's appearance this evening at the Endeavour Fund Awards—a ceremony which celebrates the achievements of wounded servicemen and women—is notable because it's likely to be one of the Sussexes last royal engagements before they fully transition out of their roles as working royals. It also marked their first official joint appearance since announcing their plans to step back from their senior positions in the royal family.
But for one of this year's winners, tonight's event was even more significant. After Danny Holland accepted the Recognising Achievement Award, he called his girlfriend up on the stage and proposed. The tender moment was captured on film by several journalists in the room, as was Meghan's sweet reaction to the engagement.
ITV's Chris Shipp posted this video on Twitter, which shows both the proposal and the royals' reaction.

Over the next few days, Harry and Meghan have a full schedule of engagements in the UK. For example, on Saturday, the royal couple is expected to appear at the Mountbatten Music Festival, and the Sussexes are also confirmed to be in attendance at Monday's Commonwealth Day Service, where they will publicly reunite with the Queen, Prince Charles, and the Cambridges. Just a few weeks after that, on March 31, Harry and Meghan will officially transition out of their senior royal roles.
