Prince William of England finally proposed to his long-time girlfriend, Kate Middleton. They announced their engagement today and as you can see in the photos below, soon-to-be Princess Kate kept her engagement ring on display. She’s wearing the ring that was once Princess Diana’s engagement ring. Below are Prince William and Kate Middleton engagement announcement photos and interview video.
According to whoever speaks for the Royal Family, a Royal wedding is planned for either Spring or Summer 2011. After dating the Crown Prince of England for eight years and enduring the British public calling her ‘Katie Waitie’ because she was always a bridesmaid and never a bride, I’m betting that Kate already has the wedding pretty well planned. But then again, the Queen will undoubtedly have to have some input into the whole affair.
Of course the media is looking for comparisons between Kate Middleton and Princess Diana. It was gallant of Prince William to come to his future bride’s defense and say she would make her own mark in the world and not be in his mother’s shadow.
Hope you enjoy the pictures and video below of the Prince William, Kate Middleton engagement announcement. I’m betting we can look forward to lots of news about the wedding plans from now until it happens. Then we have the baby watch for the next heir to the throne. This will go on for basically ever.
Best wishes to the happy couple. We are looking forward to the Royal Wedding! They do look happy in the photos don’t they?
