“It was 2/2/22 when you proposed to me and made me the happiest woman alive.”

Piet took to social media to post many images from the big event. He said that the pair were married in “cold and windy” conditions and referred to King as his “best friend”:

“The weather wasn’t quite ideal. It’s cold and windy. “It’s perfectly imperfect of me to ask my closest friend to spend a lifetime with me.”
