Prince William’s longtime girlfriend, Kate Middleton, turns 27 today, and the media is abuzz with speculation that the prince might use the occasion to finally pop the big question. British tabs are waiting with bated breath for an engagement announcement, and have dubbed Middleton as “Waitie Katie.” The prince will be hard-pressed to top last year’s birthday surprise to the lovely Kate…flying a military helicopter to her house and landing on her yard. When he wasn’t certified to fly it!

Kate and William have been dating for a long 6 years, and their relationship has British bookies hedging bets on the couple’s engagement. Odds for an engagement announcement sometime in 2009 have shortened from 6-4 to 1-2 in the last few weeks, reports Agence France-Presse (AFP). Gotta like those odds, Kate. Hang in there! You know Paris Hilton’s odd’s are like a gazillion-to-one, even though she likes to tell herself they’re much better. Ain’t no way the Queen’s gonna tolerate THAT skank.
