WATCH: Knesset Guard surprises girlfriend with marriage proposal during dignitary visit

This is thought to be the first proposal to take place at the Knesset.

Surprising marriage proposal at the Knesset
With the red carpet out for a visiting dignitary, Knesset Guard Guy Gosland invited his girlfriend, Bat-El, to see an honor guard at work.
As Bat-El approached them, the guard stood at attention and Gosland left the formation, got down on one knee and asked her to marry him; she said yes.
The police band that was there played “Hava Nagilla” and Knesset Director-General Ronen Plott wished them mazal tov in Knesset Speaker Yuli Edeltstein’s name. Gosland got the rest of the day off to celebrate his engagement, and a different guard took his place.
According to the Knesset, this was the first proposal to take place at the seat of government, but it may not be the last.
