It's Officially "Proposal Season" — & These Are The Trendiest Ways To Ask

Not that we're all looking to be proposed to while we run a marathon or win an Emmy, but I'm pretty sure everyone wants their proposal to be one-of-a-kind and personal.

Why Prince Harry Gave Princess Diana’s Engagement Ring to William to Propose to Kate Middleton With

Eight years ago, Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton and gave her his late mother Princess Diana's sapphire engagement ring.

And Harry, in a "selfless" moment, gave it to William to propose with years later.

Burrell said, per Express, that both William and Harry got to pick a memento from Diana's possessions in 1997. William was asked first what he'd like and chose Diana's Cartier watch that she received as a 21st birthday present from her father. Then Harry was asked and he singled out the ring.
