Wow. This is truly touching.

Now that the official announcement has been made that Prince William has proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Kate Middleton, more details are coming out about the engagement, and according to palace sources, he gave his bride-to-be the engagement ring that his father, Prince Charles, got for his mother, the late Princess Diana!

What an absolutely lovely gesture. That must have been such a big step for him.

According to an official statement:

"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."

Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Phillip, are reportedly "absolutely delighted for them both," and soon after, Charles said:

"We're obviously thrilled. They've been practicing long enough."

Middleton's parents, Michael and Carole, also were in agreement:

"They make a lovely couple, they're great fun to be with and we've had a lot of laughs together. We've got to know William really well. We all think he's wonderful and we're extremely fond of him. We wish them every happiness for the future."

Although the location and details are not being released right now, expect the ceremony to take place during the spring or summer of 2011!

That's coming right up! So exciting!

Congratulations are once again in order!

Try and enjoy this time together, regardless of the media overload!

It's been a long time coming; you two deserve every happiness coming your way!

    To my friends across the pond -

    how does a girl like her snag a prince? is she rich? or have famous parents or something? i can't imagine plain old jane doe catching herself a piece of royalty…….

    just curious………..

    It is touching. It's also bizarre considering her marriage didn't work out and she was later MURDERED. Say no to bad omens, people.

    The ring goes from the finger of one dumb blonde to the finger of a very stupid brunette. How long do you give this marriage ? I mean how long before he takes a mistress after the wife gives him an heir or heiress ? Watch for the big splash when and if they do get married. They can all go to hell for all I care, only Queen Elizabeth has a sense of duty in that family and deserves our respect. Kate is a terrible nickname, she should be called by her birth name Catherine. Such stupid people ! I won't be watching the royal wedding on TV, that's for sure.

    Congrats to them!

    However, that ring is a symbol of misery and his parents' ill-fated marriage. He should have gotten a new ring.

    I don't think William is someone who's looking for a bombshell beauty with fake boobs. I think he's looking for someone who is a plain Jane and has natural beauty. She makes him happy, that's all that counts. Doesn't matter if she doesn't have money or isn't "sexy".

    Re: pinkmafia – i think she is very pretty.



  11. 11

    "practicing" Heh.



  12. 12

    Re: April 20th – shes middle class, she met william as they went to the same college, so she must be quite wealthy in her own right, princess diana wanted her boys to marry 'normal girls'.

    Re: LazaroSi3333 – dont ever insult princess diana, have soem respect for the dead, you twat



  13. 13

    not sexy? WTF? I think shes gorgeous.. sexy dosent have to mean skanky!!!

    As far as I’m concerned, British Royalty died with Queen Elizabeth 1st, who had no children. And what on earth in this day and age, are the British "royalty" still dressing up for and playing as though they live in the 18th century? They don't they should just get over it. All those stupid airs’ and graces, and mothball uniforms - ridiculous!
    Yes, give me American gossip any day over some horsey looking British couple.



  15. 15

    Re: April 20th – Well, apart from his supposed and outdated "blue" blood, he's not much of a catch himself…just saying.

    Re: Diva-Babe – dianna was the most stupid woman I ever heard or read about, she said herself her brain was the size of a pea, she was right. This kate looks dumb too, maybe all british people are, who cares ? Paying taxes to support a royal family has to prove the british are not so smart.



  17. 17

    I predict this marriage will be much more successful than that of William's parents since these two are similar ages, have similar educations and interests, and have known each other for a while and gotten to be friends. The Di/Charles "fairytale" always struck me as shallow — two people pushed together for convenience who didn't belong together. All the best to William and Kate!

    Prince William: John Kennedy Jr. Part II. Ain't gonna last. Mark it.

    Its about time. It will be nice to read/watch something 'Royal' for a change rather than Lindsey Lohan jailbird gossip. Bring on the brits!

    Re: LazaroSi3333 – Who the f are you to tell them what they should do and what Kate should be called? They aren't gonna change the name she has been called for many years because "Catherine" sounds more royal. Ridiculous. Who gives a crap?

    The reason Charles cheated is because he never really wanted to marry Di, he married her, because she fit the mold of what the royal courtiers wanted in a princess. He always wanted to marry ugly horse face, but met her too early and then she married. He was banging Camilla before he even met Di. William actually likes Kate and seems to genuinely care for her.

    For someone who doesn't care you sure seem to know a lot about it.

    Re: For Every Sprinkle I Find…

    Yeah, the marraige was a sham. We know why he married her, but why did she marry him?



  22. 22

    givingTHAT ring, a symbol of his parents horrible marriage, doesnt seem like a very good idea
