“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 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 wonderful news and I can’t wait to see the wedding on TV next year. Congratulations Prince William and Kate!
One interesting fact about this royal couple, who are destined to one day be King and Queen, is that both William and Kate are descended from Mary Boleyn, sister of Anne Boleyn, through her daughter Catherine Carey.
