How Does a Prince Pop the Question? Some Secrets of William and Kate's Engagement
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.
Lewa Downs Wildlife Conservancy is owned by the parents of Prince William's friend Jecca Craig. The couple were on vacation in Kenya with friends when Prince William surprised Kate Middleton with his mother's sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
Rutundu is a log cabin in a very remote but romantic spot on the slopes of Mount Kenya and has been reported at the "secret" location where Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton.
The Rutundu complex has been referred to as the "Balmoral of Africa" because of its similar landscape and climate to the Queen's Scottish estate.
Guests chopper in and can enjoy hiking and fishing in nearby Lake Alice. Rutundu is off the beaten path and ideal for couples looking for an exclusive destination. Rates start at $300 a night.
