“Meghan’s face lit up when she realised what was happened,” a royal source told Woman’s Day.

“Meghan knew it was coming, but she was still shocked when Harry proposed and told family it was the most surreal but romantic moment of her life, and it’s something she’s still trying to process.

"It was incredibly magical."

According to the source, Harry and Meghan are enjoying the rest of their holiday together before they make the official announcement.

It comes after it was revealed that Prince Harry wowed Meghan on her birthday while they were in Africa.

According to The Telegraph, Harry and Meghan set up home for their holiday in a log cabin in Kenya's Lewa Wildlife Conservatory area.

Of course, who could forget that his brother, Prince William, popped the question to Kate Middleton in that exact area of Kenya in 2010?

And while the world went into overdrive imagining a sunset proposal on the plains of Africa, The Sun reported that Harry had actually been plotting the holiday for a very long time.

“They’ll go on boats across the lake, walk in the bush at dawn and camp under the stars,” a royal insider told the publication.

"Harry regards Africa as his spiritual home and has often talked of how he can get away from it all there.

“Who knows what will happen when they’re watching a sensational African sunset together? Maybe he’ll get down on one knee."
