Man Proposes In Iceland After Their Trip To The Country Was Cancelled Due To Coronavirus

Man Proposes In Iceland After Their Trip To The Country Was Cancelled Due To Coronavirus

With the COVID-19 outbreak continuing to grip the country, many Brits are being forced to cancel events, weddings and holidays to help halt the spread.

But one man who planned on proposing to his girlfriend on a trip to Iceland, decided to take matters into his own hands when the romantic getaway was called off.

Robert Ormsby, 58, was adamant that coronavirus wouldn't stop his engagement, and hatched up a plan to ask his girlfriend in the next best way.

He decided to pop the question to partner Patsy Murdoch, 58, in the local Iceland supermarket, instead. In between the aisles of frozen food in Tonbridge, Kent, Robert got down on one knee and asked Patsy to be his wife.

A photo of the couple - who posed at the checkout in front of a stack of shopping baskets - has since gone viral online and Iceland has even announced a special treat for the pair.
