In an amazingly candid interview Nov. 16, Prince William and Kate Middleton talked about the Kenyan engagement, comparisons to Princess Diana, and how they’re like a couple of ducks.

Just minutes after being blitzed by photo flashes during their official unveiling as an engaged couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton revealed to the UK’s ITV just exactly how their engagement went down.

Says William, “It was about three weeks ago on holiday in Kenya. We had been talking about marriage for a while so it wasn’t a massively big surprise. I took her up somewhere nice in Kenya and I proposed.”

Kate, on the other hand, did think  it was a complete surprise: “It was very romantic. There’s a true romantic in there. I really didn’t expect it. It was a total shock… and very exciting.”
