He popped the question on Bonfire Night, a holiday on which people set off fireworks, host bonfires, and light effigies in honor of Guy Fawkes, who tried to assassinate the British king in 1605.
Chris took Sophie to Chatsworth House for Bonfire Night 2019, where the Bennet sisters live in the 2005 film adaptation of “Pride and Prejudice.” It’s one of Sophie’s favorite movies.
“It was really special,” Sophie said of the proposal.
The couple planned to have a “winter chic” wedding in December of 2020.
Sophie said she wasn’t a person who spent years dreaming about her wedding, but she liked the idea of a black-tie party with fireworks, sparklers, and winter-themed decorations.
