Eight years on, we're still swooning over Kate and William's dotey engagement interview

Happy anniversary, Kate and Wills!

Well, not their real anniversary but the anniversary of their engagement - a significant milestone for the couple.

Prince William and Kate Middleton announced that they were getting married on this day in 2010 and after looking around online we've unearthed their engagement interview.

The couple sat down with ITV's Tom Bradby, with whom William is close, on the day they made the news public to chat about how it all came about.

They revealed that William got down on one knee with his mother Diana's engagement ring while they were on holiday in Kenya a few weeks beforehand, but that they'd been discussing marriage for quite a while.

They also revealed that it was far from love at first sight for them, with Kate admitting that she went "bright red" when they were first introduced.

They were friends for about a year and bonded over their sense of humour before getting together, William explained.

Adorably, the pair skirted over the question of having kids, with William saying they'd take things "one step at a time" but that they did want a family down the line.

Fast forward seven years later and they're parents to George, 5, Charlotte, 3, and six-month-old Louis.

We're so used to seeing Kate and Wills as #parentgoals that it's lovely to watch them as two young lovebirds. Bless.
