Harry makes Priya Thakker feel very special

Harry Styles has proposed to a One Direction fan.

But other Directioners shouldn’t get too upset about his engagement – he was only joking when he popped the question on stage in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania earlier this week.

Harry, 20, decided to ask devotee Priya Thakker to marry him after he heard that she’d turned up to the band’s gig at the Lincoln Financial Field in a wedding dress.

‘I heard there was a girl here in a wedding dress… is there a girl here in a wedding dress? Now I feel bad letting this go to waste so what’s your name?’ said Harry.

‘Priya? Priya… will you marry me? There’s been a plot twist!

‘We’ll take the engagement gifts and then we’ll… okay, awesome. I almost wore my wedding dress. It could’ve been awkward. But that’s a different story.’

Harry and his bandmates are currently on the North American leg of their Where We Are stadium tour and will play in Detroit, Michigan tomorrow night.

Despite Harry having moved on to another part of the US, it looks like overwhelmed Priya won’t be forgetting their sweet encounter anytime soon.

‘I’m probably never going to sleep again to be honest. I just keep replaying “Priya will you marry me?” in my head IN HIS BRITISH ACCENT OMG,’ she excitedly Tweeted yesterday.
