To the world he’s the second in line to the British throne, but for the past eight years Prince William has been Prince Charming to Kate Middleton, and on November 16, 2010 Clarence House issued the long-awaited announcement that the couple have taken their first steps toward a happily ever after.
A love story which began during their days as students at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland led to a proposal from the royal romantic in October 2010 as the pair enjoyed a holiday getaway to Kenya.
During their first photocall together, Prince William revealed that he presented his bride-to-be with the sapphire and diamond engagement ring once worn by Princess Diana. “It was my way of making sure my mother didn’t miss out on today.”
While the public is privy to plans of a wedding in either the spring or summer of 2011, further details of the impending I do’s are to be revealed at a future date.
