It’s official people, Prince William is taken. Bride-to-be and Future Queen Kate Middleton will be his blushing bride on that regal day. Also known as “Waity Katy” she is rumored to have captured Prince William’s attention when she modeled black underwear beneath a transparent dress during a charity fashion show. Their long running romance commenced in 2001, and over the eight year stunt, they have co-habitated in a shared house. A bit unconventional, but so was their engagement announcement via TWITTER!
The first tweet came from the royal home the Clarence House: “The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton –www.princeofwales.gov.uk” AOL News reported that the tweet out-scooped Prince William’s website, causing a flurry of updates.
Soon to follow was a tweet from the British Monarcy: “The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are absolutely delighted at the news of Prince William and Catherine Middleton’s engagement.”
The couple is said to marry in Spring or Summer 2011. “2011 would be Diana’s 50th birthday and also the 30th anniversary of her wedding to his father,” Katie Nicholl — author of William and Harry: Behind the Palace Walls and royal correspondent for the Mail on Sunday — told Us.
THE RING! According to BBC, Prince William gave Kate his late mother Diana’s platinum and 18-carat sapphire and diamond engagement ring from Garrard Jewelers. AOL reports that Diana chose the ring, which cost $28,000 at the time, from Garrard Jewelers.
Kate is the daughter of self-made millionaires, Michael Middleton and Carole Middleton; owners of a children’s toy and party business. She is also the eldest of three children and has certainly set a high bar for her younger siblings.
Post wedding plans include Prince William continuing his service in the Royal Airforce.
Perhaps your childhood dreams of coming into royalty have been dashed, but remain hopeful. Your prince charming is on the way.
We love it! Congrats to the happy couple!
