in the news: princess kate

After years of speculation, Prince William has (finally) proposed to his long time girlfriend, Kate Middleton. The couple spoke publicly on the BBC tonight to share their happiness with the world.

The British heir to the throne revealed he popped the question while the couple was holidaying in Kenya with friends. Kate told the BBC that it was very romantic and obviously private, because she left the details at that.

She is now wearing her fiancé’s mother’s beautiful engagement ring, featuring one giant sapphire surrounded by a ring of diamonds. Princess Diana picked the ring after Prince Charles proposed in 1981.

With the wedding to be held next spring or summer, we can look forward to at least six months of intense royal wedding related speculation.

The biggest shock of all from the interview, at least to me, is that after all the talk early on about Miss Middleton being a mere commoner, we finally get to hear her talk and realise her accent is decidedly posh. Who knew!

Watch the interview with the happy couple and read more at the BBC.

P.S. How fabulous is Kate’s appropriately royal-blue Issa dress? Perfect for the princess-in-waiting!
