Kate Middleton and Prince WilliamPrince William shared with the world that he proposed to longtime love Kate Middleton while they were vacationing in Kenya last month. In a video interview (watch it on AisleDash) he explained that they had been talking about getting married for a while but he said "as every guy will know, it takes a certain amount of motivation to get yourself going...and it felt really right" to pop the question in Africa. He added that he had done a little planning to show his romantic side. Kate said that "it [the proposal] was a total shock when it came and very exciting."

So what was this romantic Kenyan spot Prince William chose?

The couple visited Lewa Downs Wildlife Conservancy, Manda Bay and Rutundu. And just how did he propose?

The Daily Telegraph reports that Prince William and Kate Middleton stayed at the Lewa Downs Wildlife Conservancy and he popped the question by a lake next to the slopes of Africa's second-highest peak, Mount Kenya. Only accessible by helicopter, the RAF pilot flew his bride-to-be to the lakeside in a borrowed helicopter.
