Britain's most eligible royal bachelor has finally proposed to his
girlfriend of 9 years, Kate Middleton. Prince William met Middleton while
at school at Edinburgh. The two became friends and later began dating.
Their relationship has been the subject of media scrutiny since they began
dating. Rumors of the royal wedding have been heard for months, and it
has now been announced that the pair is officially engaged.
According to reports, Prince William proposed to Middleton in Kenya while
on vacation there. He planned it so that it would be romantic, and Middleton
is wearing Princess Diana's ring. The wedding is expected to be the
only social event of the decade to rival Chelsea Clinton's wedding.
Already the dress that Middleton wore at the press announcement has sold
out, and wedding ring replicas are flying off of the shelves.
When Prince Charles ascends the throne, Prince Williams will likely become
the Prince of Wales, next in line to become King of England. Middleton
will be referred to by her first name, Catherine, and she may become a
duchess after she marries. The Queen will have a part in deciding her title.
