Aretha Franklin Engaged

From Prince William and Kate Middleton to Prince Albert II and Charlene Wittstock, 2011 was a year of royal romance and from the looks of it 2012 promises more of the same as The Queen of Soul announces her intention to say “I do.”

The Associated Press reports that multi-Grammy Award-winning singer Aretha Franklin, who has reached the top of the charts 22 times over the course of her career, holds the number one spot in the heart of her prospective groom, longtime friend William “Willie” Wilkerson.

The superstar is currently contemplating a June or July walk down the aisle in wedding wear possibly created by Donna Karan, Valentino or Vera Wang. According to reports, the ceremony may take place in Miami Beach, Florida, with the happy couple enjoying smooth sailing during their first hours as newlyweds at a reception aboard a private yacht.
