Prince William has proposed to Kate Middleton and the biggest wedding in Buckingham Palace since 1981 will be held next year. The ceremony is expected to be held at Westminster Abbey in a highly anticipated, grand event coined "the wedding of the century."
Twenty eight year old William proposed to Middleton while vacationing in Kenya in October. The on and off again couple have been dating for eight years, and to her chagrin, media outlets coined her nickname "Waity Katy."
Clarence House issued a formal statement regarding the engagement which read: "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 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."
A spokesman for Buckingham Palace stated: "Both the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are
absolutely delighted for them both."
The first interview since the engagement news was released will be held this evening. Middleton is expected to reveal her engagement ring as well.
