It’s about damned time – the British royal family released a statement that Prince William is finally engaged to his long-time girlfriend, Kate Middleton, whom he met at university in 2002. Â They began dating in 2003, and almost immediately there was speculation about whether Middleton would become the next member of the royals.
The rumors were up, down, and all around – at one point the press said they were on the verge of breaking up – but now they’re finally heading toward the finish line. Prince Charles expressed relief at the announcement, and apparently the wedding is being scheduled for spring or summer of 2011. Â It’s going to be huge, you can bet on that.
