The incident at the time saw Ora branded “wrong and irresponsible” by Home Secretary Priti Patel.

According to The Sun, the couple proposed to each other at the same time.


A source said: “This isn’t about them doing a big showy thing and crowing about it beforehand.

“It’s just about them being in love and deciding the time is right to formalise their relationship. They couldn’t be happier.”

The source added: “They didn’t do a whole, ‘Will you marry me?’ thing and an Instagram post.

“There’s no ring or big build-up. They just got closer and closer and eventually said to each other almost simultaneously, ‘I want to marry you.’’

The pair both relocated to the US, but have since been seen at Ora’s mansion in London.
