What exciting news to wake up to this morning. It's about time we had another Royal wedding and Prince William has finally popped the question to Kate Middleton.
I thought it was a lovely gesture that he chose his Mothers' engagement ring to give to her as he and his brother had a very special relationship with Princess Diana. I know that she would be very proud of her son.
There was a very candid interview with both William and Kate where they were not afraid to tell us about their lives. It was different to when his Mother and Prince Charles got engaged. It was very stiff and formal, whereas William and Kate looked very relaxed and happy.
Prince William also explained why it took so long to propose. He said that he wanted to give her plenty of time to back out! What a genuinely nice person he is. He knows what his Mother went through so he really wanted to make sure that she knew what she was getting herself into. It also helped that they were friends for quite some time before they became involved with each other.
Kate is a beautiful woman and everyone will be waiting in eager anticipation to see what her wedding dress will look like and for that matter what the whole bridal party will look like as well.
No one can ever take the place of Princess Diana, but I have a feeling that Princess Katherine will make her, along with the rest of the Royal family, very proud of her future achievements.
