Love and jubilation were in the air on Saturday afternoon in London as crowds celebrated Pride.

While punters adorned in rainbow-themed costumes applauded the parade, one couple embodied the atmosphere by getting engaged.

To make things even better, one of them was an on-duty police woman.

British Transport Police tweeted footage of the special moment which has since gone viral.

The happy couple, which have asked not to be named, were cheered by spectators as they embraced.

The Sun report that they have been together for five years and live together in London.

They were inundated with congratulations from other police forces after BTP shared the video on social media.

Members of the public also joined in:

This recalls scenes from one year ago when PC Phil Adlem broke from his duties to propose to his partner,

Even now, the emotions of this moment remain strong.

An estimated 26,000 people are expected to take part in this weekend's Pride parade, which concludes on Sunday.

If you are wondering why there was a heavy police presence at the event, it was because the Metropolitan Police, London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade were asked to launch this year's Pride as a mark of respect for their acts of bravery following the recent terror attacks and the Grenfell fire tragedy.
