On June 21, 2008 the happy couple gathered alongside their respective families to announce to the media their intention to wed, Hello magazine reports. The nuptials will take place in Mechelen, a Belgian city which is forever linked to another royal– Anne Boleyn, the second wife of King Henry VIII.
