The Today Show has just reported that Prince William and Kate Middleton are engaged and expected to be married next year. The Prince of Wales announced the engagement after Prince William informed The Queen, Miss Middletonâ€™s father, and other close family members. Prince William actually popped the question last month while the love birds were vacationing in Kenya. How romantic!
Prince William,28, and Kate Middleton have been dating for about eight years. They have had a few splits over the years, but always come back to each other. How romantic! The Prince and Miss Middleton have made the saying â€œlove will come back if set freeâ€ true.
Look very closely at Kate's engagement ring in the picture to the left. Yes, the picture is small, but look close. Does it look familiar? It's Princess Diana's ring! What a lovely sentiment. A gorgeous sapphire surrounded by diamonds.Â This picture was taken today during a press conference/photo opportunity for the world to set their eyes on the newly engaged Royal couple.
What is rather interesting is that the British Monarchy is using Facebook and that is how the announcement was made public. This truly is the future and social networking is a big part of it!
Prince Charles told a Today interviewer that he is very happy about the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The Queen is also very happy about the marriage, which is expected to be the biggest event since the marriage of Prince Williamâ€™s parents, Princess Diana and Prince Charles.
Although an exact wedding date has not yet be set, it is expected to be next spring or summer in London. The couple will live in north Wales following the marriage, and Prince William will continue serving in the Royal Air Force.
