Rainbow flags have been flying high all over the world this week, as various Pride Parades have been filling the streets from New York City to France. But it was London's Pride Parade that came to a screeching halt on Saturday — for the sweetest of reasons! Two police officers working security at the event both broke ranks to propose to their significant others, because, really, could you think of a better place to pop the question than that?
On Saturday June 25, the city of London broke out its rainbow flags for their annual Pride Parade. As the ranks of police men and women marched in formation through the streets and amongst the cheering crowds, one certain officer couldn't think of a more joyous moment to get down on one knee. As the parade passed his boyfriend, who was watching from the sidewalk, the officer broke ranks, bringing the event to a halt to say those four fantastic words.
Of course the watching crowd didn't seem to mind the pause in the parade a bit, as the onlookers cheered on the adorable couple, capturing the sweet moment on video. And naturally, the police offer received a resounding 'yes!' from his sweetheart as the pair embraced. Cue the flying confetti and a couple of glasses of champagne, courtesy of a kind spectator. Ugh! Could this moment be any more perfect?!
But that wasn't the only in-uniform parade proposal that day! According to People magazine, minutes later another too-cute cop got down on one knee in the middle of the London streets. But this time, it was a fellow officer who was on the receiving end of the proposal! And, duh, the answer was yes, as well! Thankfully, cameras were also nearby to capture this equally perfect proposal.
There's no better place than a Pride Parade to celebrate love, after all!
