“The ring is obviously yellow gold because that’s (Meghan’s) favourite,” he said. “The main stone itself I sourced from Botswana, and the little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewellery collection to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together.”

Speaking about what Diana’s reaction might of been, he she would be: “over the moon, jumping up and down, so excited for me.”

“I could barely let you finish proposing, I was like: ‘Can I say yes now?!'”

To which Prince Harry said: “She didn’t even let me finish, she was like: ‘Can I say yes now?’

“Then there were hugs and I had the ring in my fingers…I was like: ‘Can I give you the ring?’ She was like: ‘Oh yes, the ring…’

“It was a really nice moment just between the two of us and I think I managed to catch her by surprise as well.”
