After being together for eight years and getting tons of speculation tossed around about whether or not William was going to seal the deal, it’s official.
Kate Middleton and Prince William are getting married!
The royal engagement was announced in a statement Tuesday:
“The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton. The wedding will take place in the Spring or Summer of 2011, in London. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course. 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.”
It’s about time! This wedding is going to be epic. Princess Diana had a massive wedding, I think this one will blow that one out of the water.
Congrats to the happy couple! Happy wedding planning!
