A French soldier in training proposed to his girlfriend on Wednesday on the Champs-Elysees in Paris, shortly before a military jeep carrying French President Emmanuel Macron passed during Bastille Day celebrations.
Amid the gasps of the cheering spectators, the soldier in uniform went down on his knees, chatted a little with his girlfriend, and then put a ring on her left hand, as appeared in a video posted by Macron on his Twitter account, commenting with best wishes.
The French army also posted the video on its Twitter account, tweeting, “Everything is possible for our soldiers on the National Day. Congratulations.”
A spokeswoman for the ground forces said that the soldier's girlfriend was allowed to cross a security cordon, after the soldiers learned of their comrade's intention.
The proposal came as French soldiers were preparing for the traditional military parade along the Champs-Elysees, linking the Arc de Triomphe and Place de la Concorde.
The French National Day commemorates the invasion of the Bastille, the medieval fortress that was a symbol of royal power, during the French Revolution.
