Because everyone loves a Royal Wedding, Prince William and Kate Middleton have done us a favor and FINALLY decided to tie the knot. And their happy engagement, which actually took place last month on a trip to Kenya, was announced, interestingly, on Twitter.
“The timing is right now. We are both very, very happy,” he says.
Prince William has given his fiancée his mother’s ring. “It’s very special to me. As Kate’s very special to me now, it was right to put the two together.” The diamond and blue sapphire ring was originally given to Diana, Princess of Wales, by William’s father, Prince Charles in 1981. He adds, “This was my way of making sure that my mother didn’t miss out on today.”
