It’s official! Prince William proposed to girlfriend Kate Middleton last month at the remote Rutundu log cabins in Kenya, Africa. Accessed by a steep mountain climb or helicopter, the basic cabins have few mod cons but it is a place where the Prince can really relax without the usual security worries.

The Alaskan style cabins, described as a ‘rough-luxe’ getaway, are built from round cedar logs from the hillside with moss used to fill the cracks. There is no electricity, only a cosy log fire but the views over the surrounding wilderness are breathtaking.

Kate described the stay as ‘so romantic’.
