Prince William and Kate Middleton will celebrate their ninth wedding anniversary this year.

And last night, Wills revealed some adorable details about how he proposed to the Duchess of Cambridge.

During an event at Buckingham Palace, Will spoke about how popped the question during a trip to Africa in 2010.

It's reported that just before the 37-year-old proposed to Kate with Princess Diana's engagement ring, the pair had spent the day fishing during a holiday to Kenya.

Speaking at the event - a reception to mark the UK-Africa Investment Summit - Will explained: "The African continent holds a very special place in my heart. It is the place my father took my brother and me shortly after our mother died.

"And when deciding where best to propose to Catherine, I could think of no more fitting place than Kenya to get down on one knee."

During their official engagement interview in November 2010, the royal couple gave some brief details about how they got engaged, but Kate did say it was "very romantic".

"We had been talking about marriage for a while so it wasn't a massively big surprise," explained Will at the time.

"I took her up somewhere nice in Kenya and I proposed."

Kate added: "It was very romantic. There's a true romantic in there."

Kate said William was a romantic during their engagement interview (

It's thought Kate and Will were staying in an off-grid, remote cabin along the shores of Lake Rutunda at the time of the proposal.

Surrounded by forests, mountains and with incredible views, there's no phone signal or electricity, with water heated via a burner outside.

Guests can catch and cook their own fish dinners and one of the main features of the cabin in the spectacular veranda, perfect for breakfast with a view.

The royal couple enjoyed it so much, they even wrote in the cabin guest book. William said he wished he had brought "warmer clothes" while Kate thanked the owners for a "wonderful 24 hours".

"Sadly no fish to be found by we had great fun trying," she wrote.

"I love the warm fires and candle lights - so romantic! Hope to be back again soon."

Will and Kate would like to return with their children (

And it seems the pair could end up returning, after William also explained during his speech that he hopes to make a trip to Africa with his children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, too.

"And as Catherine and I have said to several of you here tonight, we hope to have the chance to visit many more countries in the future and share our mutual love of your continent with our children," he said.

It certainly sounds like one of the most romantic spots on the planet - good work, Will!
