War Hero Proposes At Buckingham Palace

A British soldier gave his nuptials some royal panache by proposing to his girlfriend at Buckingham Palace, moments after he was awarded a medal for bravery while serving in Afghanistan. Royal Marine Mark Jackson told Prince Charles his plan as he was presenting the award, then dropped down on one knee. She said yes.

The event was doubly exciting because David Suchet was in the house to pick up a CBE. As we've learned much of what we know about the nation from PBS, we'll assume every young British girl dreams of having Poirot at her proposal.
