A movie-worthy love scene caught the attention of those attending the London Gay Parade on Saturday. A video posted on Twitter by the London Transit Police shows the moment when the girlfriend of one of the agents knelt to ask her to marry him.
The police officer was surprised at the request during her expedient helping to monitor the route of the stop. The crowd around the two went crazy at the time of the request and shouted even more when the police officer said yes, took the ring and hugged the girlfriend.
Thousands of people participated in the parade that is part of a festival that is happening from June 24 to Sunday. The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, celebrated the event in a speech to the crowd.
“The best antidote to sadness, melancholy, mourning and hatred is the Gay Parade in London,” the Metro newspaper said.
