We’re thrilled that Prince William finally proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Kate Middleton! Let’s take a look back at the life of the handsome heir to the English throne!
The eyes of the world will be on Prince William and Kate Middleton when they wed next year. Considering that William’s parents Prince Charles and the late Lady Diana‘s fairy-tale wedding was the television event of the century back in 1981, we have a feeling this is going to be one hugely regal affair. We’re so happy for the couple, who began dating in college! And we think it’s a touching tribute to his late mom that William gave his bride-to-be Diana’s engagement ring.
We’re not the only ones excited that after years of speculation and break-ups and make-ups, William finally popped the question. Across the pond, William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and her husband Prince Philip “are absolutely delighted for them both,” according to a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace. And his father, Prince Charles, said he was “thrilled.” We’re sure Princess Diana would be proud of the man her beloved Wills has become.
