Prince William and Kate Middleton Engaged

16 Nov

Soundbite: Prince William and Kate Middleton press conference Soundbite: David Cameron’s reaction Prince William has revealed that he proposed using the engagement ring of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, to make sure she “didn’t miss out on the excitement”. William and his long-term girlfriend, Kate Middleton, got engaged on holiday in Kenya last month and will marry next year. Miss Middleton, showing off the distinctive blue sapphire engagement ring alongside her husband-to-be tonight, told reporters that joining the Royal Family was a “daunting prospect”. But she added: “Hopefully I’ll take it in my stride.” Prince William said of their engagement: “The timing is right now, we are both very, very happy.” The Prince of Wales says he is “thrilled” by the engagement of his son Prince William and Kate Middleton, while his wife the Duchess of Cornwall said the news was “wicked”. Speaking at his Poundbury model village in Dorset, the Prince joked: “They have been practising long enough.” Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding will be even bigger than the The X Factor final. Just don’t bet against Simon Cowell being at both of them. Both the BBC News channel and Sky News devoted their entire schedule to the couple today following the marriage announcement by Clarence House, with BBC1 also interrupting its normal programming to bring viewers the big news. It is likely to be a fair reflection of the blanket media coverage that will be devoted to next year’s wedding
