There is something about the Royal family of England that captures everyone’s interest and keeps them hooked onto any major development in the family. The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton grabbed eyeballs from all over the world. This huge interest in this union could have resulted from the fact that it really was a modern day version of a fairy tale, unfolding in front of all. One of the things that made even the stone-hearted sit up and take notice was the way prince William proposed to her. After trekking around Kenya, he chose a remote wooden log cabin to pop the question to Kate Middleton to be the future queen of England. This prince knew how exactly a proposal should be to sweep his ladylove off her feet and get only an affirmative answer. So, if you are planning to pop the question and ask your girl to make a transition from girlfriend to fiancé and then wife, you better make sure the ante is upped. To make things easier for you, we have listed down exotic locations that will make sure yours is a proposal to remember, always.
This place offers you the perfect setting for the ideal proposal. You have a heart shaped island located between large expanses of blue water. The heart shape island could form the perfect backdrop when you ask her midair. If not that, then you can head 212 meters above sea level on the Mountain Oldfield and have a panoramic view of the islands and also the prancing of dolphins and whales in the pristine and crystalline waters. If your partner is a water baby then this would be the most perfect setting you could create for her.
If your partner has a thing for books and literature, there cannot be a more ideal destination than Verona, Italy. Shakespeare lovers will tell you that Romeo and Juliet met in this town. The town also pays ode to this fact by placing Juliet’s balcony in such a way that it seems like it has been there since forever. But, don’t be fooled as it was added only in 1936. For bibliophiles, the charm of this quaint town is unmatched. After all, nothing excites a bibliophile more than immersing themselves completely in the setting of a book. And what better way than getting proposed in this setting!
The Taj Mahal is known as the oldest and biggest testament of romantic love. The folklore says that Emperor Shah Jahan built it for his wife Mumtaz as his way of expressing his love for her.

On a full moon night, by the banks of river Yamuna, as this wonder of the world sparkles and glows, go down on your knee and promise her a lifetime of happiness. Not only will she be enchanted by the backdrop, she will always remember the special effort you took to surprise her. After all this, it would really take a stone heart to not melt.

You can’t complete a list of romantic destinations without counting the most romantic city in the world, Paris. When you talk about lifelong bond and love, you can’t miss the city of love. Paris has made its way into almost all must visit places lists, especially for lovers. This city offers many spaces to choose from to commit to eternal love together.
