Prince William & Kate Middleton Get Engaged!
It's safe to say that Kate Middleton is pretty much the envy of every 20 something. She's just landed herself an incredibly nice life...by saying "yes" to Prince William who asked for her hand in marriage just three weeks ago. After much speculation, the long time couple will make it official come this spring or summer. One could say that Kate pretty much has a set life...and yes, we're green with envy, but congrats nonetheless.
After beginning their relationship back in college, the two have been dating for about eight years.
"Prince William has informed the queen and other close members of his family," the statement said. "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."
William, second in line to the throne, is an RAF search and rescue pilot.
Prime Minister David Cameron said he was delighted by the news, and sent the couple his best.
And who says being apart does not make the heart grow fonder? With just one brief break up during their eight year relationship, the couple claims that made them even stronger.
So what's the engagement ring? The same one William's mother Princess Diana sported in the 90s. The two announced their engagement today and spoke candidly with press.
