Guardsman Proposes live on ITV

Guardsman Gregg Westwood, 1st Bn Grenadier Guards, proposed to his partner Mercedes Witchalls at White City’s Television Studios on ITV’s Live show ‘This Morning’ programme.

Guardsman Westwood’s sister entered him into an ITV This Morning competition to make a surprise proposal of marriage live on ITV’s This Morning show.  His partner thought he was still training in the Falkland Islands so was completely taken aback. 

I was very excited and overwhelmed by the support of my family who helped make all this possible. It has come together perfectly with the surprise of Mercedes not knowing and it’s been perfect day. I couldn’t of asked for anything more this is a new chapter in our life together and also looking forward to see what the future hold for me and my family Gdsm Westwood



It takes huge confidence to make such an audacious proposal which Guardsman Westwood says come from his infantry training, operational experience in Afghanistan and confidence gained from performing immaculately when marching in the Queen’s Birthday Parade.
