Prince William & Kate Middleton Are Getting Married!

Finally, after 8 years of courting, Clarence House announced today that Prince William & Kate Middleton are to be married sometime in Spring/Summer 2011 in London! Reportedly, Wills asked Kate's father for his daughter's hand in marriage (how traditionally sweet!) before popping the question last month whilst the two were holidaying in Kenya.
The couple who are both 28, are said to appear in public for photographs later today, where the future Princess will show off her engagement ring for the first time! They will then proceed to broadcast their news with their first ever television interview together tonight.
Clarence House said: 'The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton.'Prince William and Miss Middleton became engaged in October during a private holiday in Kenya. 

'Prince William has informed The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince William has also sought the permission of Miss Middleton's father. Following the marriage, the couple will live in North Wales, where Prince William will continue to serve with the Royal Air Force.'
A spokesman at Buckingham Palace said: 'Both the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are absolutely delighted for them both.'

If Kate decides to follow in the footsteps of her predecessors, her ring will most likely be made from a nugget of Welsh Gold. The custom was initiated by the Queen Mother in 1923 and has been used for Royal brides since. The Queen Mother's wedding ring, the Queen's in 1947, Princess Margaret's in 1960, the Princess Royal's in 1973, Diana's in 1981 and Camilla's in 2005 were all made from the same nugget, reports Daily Mail. 

Well, we hope she will be a peoples' Princess like Diana, she certainly has big footsteps to follow in!

Congrats to them both!
