These two policemen getting engaged at London Pride will make you shed a tear (VIDEO)
Two police officers marching in Pride at London have gotten engaged on camera, in a touching scene, and another uniformed officer also proposed to his boyfriend in the crowd.
The moment of the proposal was caught on camera and video, and a picture was taken by the Metropolitan Police’s LGBT network and tweeted.
Luckily the recipient of the ring said yes, as the Met tweeted.
The Met tweeted the picture in response to a picture of another couple, one of them a police officer, getting engaged at Pride in London which saw tens of thousands take to the streets of London.
Watch the proposal between the two officers here:
A large police presence was felt at Pride following the mass shooting at Orlando, Florida’s Pulse gay club, which killed 49 and injured 53.

PC Anton Brown, the chair of the Network, said: “This is the culmination of two years’ work, which started with a conversation over a coffee in Berlin at the European Gay Police Association conference in 2014.
“The new staff association will represent LGBT matters in the Met, promoting recruitment and delivering training to LGBT liaison officers. It will also provide access to local and national events, promote reporting and provide support to members who have suffered LGBT crimes or bullying.
“The Network will also work with the LGBT community to signpost members of the public to support services.”
Earlier this week the Metropolitan Police Chief vowed to keep Pride in London safe – as extra officers are drafted in for security in the wake of a shooting at a gay club in Orlando which left 49 dead and 53 injured.
Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the head of London’s Metropolitan Police, spoke to press including PinkNews ahead of a meeting with LGBT business leaders, following the attack in Orlando.
