Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip got engaged in 2014, but to this very day they have kept the location of their secret proposal very private. What we do know is that it took place in a "special place" to them, and Sofia got presented with the most incredible ring!

Prince Carl Philip took it upon himself to design a bespoke jewel for the then-Sofia Hellgvist, opting for a round-cut diamond to wow his bride-to-be. The central diamond is surrounded by pavé diamonds, and the double split band also features more sparkling stones.

Prince Carl Philip's marriage proposal came as a complete surprise to Sofia. The then 35-year-old popped the question in the morning - something of a shock to Sofia as she said she is usually the first to wake.

Talking about the proposal later, the prince admitted: "I woke up several times the night before, I don't know if Sofia noticed. I wanted it to be a surprise."
