It's been almost 10 years since Kate Middleton and Prince William were married in a lavish wedding at Westminster Abbey.

But do you know how the Duke of Cambridge proposed to his future bride?

The pair got engaged during a trip to Kenya, back on October 20, 2010 - nearly a decade after they first met at The University of St Andrews.

And of course, as you might expect from a prince - the proposal was very romantic.

The couple travelled around the country before heading to Lake Rutundu, which Wills had decided was the perfect place for their special moment.

According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, he booked a log cabin for their stay and the couple spent the day fishing (unsuccessfully) for rainbow trout.

She goes on to claim that they later returned to the cabin and William took Kate out onto the veranda and got down on one knee.

Awwww! How sweet!

The lovebirds checked out the next morning and headed home, but before leaving they took the time to write sweet messages in the venue's guest book.

Messages from the visitors book in the Kenyan hideaway at Lake Rutundu, where British royal Prince William is alleged to have proposed to Kate Middleton, while on a boat.
Kate left a sweet message

It read: "Thank you for such a wonderful 24 hours!

"Sadly no fish to be found but we had fun trying. I love the warm fires and candle lights—so romantic. Hope to be back soon."

She signed off Catherine Middleton.

William added: "20th-21st October 2010. Such fun to be back!

"Brought more clothes this time! Looked after so well. Thank you guys! Look forward to next time, soon I hope."

Kate and William didn't officially announce their engagement until the following month.

A statement from Clarence House at 11am on Tuesday, November 16 read: "His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton are engaged to be married.

"The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton. The wedding will take place in the Spring or Summer of 2011 in London."
