Let the royal wedding frenzy begin. Prince William and Kate Middleton are finally making it legal. Prince Charles announced that Prince William and Catherine Middleton
got engaged last month during a holiday to Kenya. They plan to marry next spring or summer in London. The pair met while in school at St Andrews eight years ago and have had an on-again, off-again relationship since then including a breakup in 2007. Some British tabloids have given her the nickname "waity Katie" as the relationship lingered on without any engagement announcement. The Prince proposed using the diamond and sapphire ring that his father had given to his mother. The ring cost £28,000 back in 1981
when Princess Diana chose it from a selection presented to her by Garrard jewelers.
No details have been released about the wedding but after the marriage the couple will live in north Wales where William is based with the Royal Air Force. Prince William will become the Prince of Wales after Prince Charles ascends to the throne and at that point Middleton would become the Princess of Wales, a title also given to his mother Princess Diana. Middleton will become a duchess when she marries the Prince. She has already spent the last few years in the spotlight because of her relationship with Prince William and has made several best dressed lists.
