So, at long last the speculation is over. The greatest joy will no doubt be felt by the moderators of this forum who will no longer have to add additional threads to the Wills and Kate engagement speculation!
I can't help thinking how proud Diana would have been of how her boys have grown up. Charles and Camilla have done a wonderful job of being there for their boys and I extend my best wishes to all of them especially Wills and Kate.

Well, he doesn't shy away from things -- at least in this respect. Perhaps it was his Mother's wish after the divorce. I hope he comments on it.

The giving of his mother's engagement ring to Catherine is a great disappointment to me. I had hoped she would have her own ring.

Clarence House have just confirmed that William has given his fiancee the engagement ring that his late mother wore. It is an enormous 18 carat blue sapphire surrounded by smaller diamonds. We might get a glimpse of it on Kate's hand shortly when those much-awaited photos of the happy couple are released.

Well perhaps for Prince William her lovely ring is full of wonderful memories. But I must admit I didn't expect it.

Congrats Will and Kate!

Have to add FINALLY, as well. The end to the worlds logest series of rumors. LOL!

I hear it's his mothers ring after all. Very nice.

BBC feed keeps cutting out here. Overload I suspect. (I'm at work...hee hee)

Fun Day! :)

I hope she doesn't wear the Spencer Tiara to represent Diana's side of the family at the wedding. To many references to Diana would take away from the happy couple!
Can't wait to see the interview oh and poor Camilla having to look at that ring at events LOL she can't get away from Diana ever either.

I think it is actually very touching that he gave his mother's ring to her. From the love of his mother to the love of his life. It shows how much both women mean to him. Very touching.

In a news story I just watched, they said that he proposed last month... How did they keep it secret for so long?
I think that it was great that they did. I can see that William really wanted to keep a quite for as long as they could.

I just heard that william gave kate his mother's ring. I wish he would have gave her something else( Give her the ring as a Gift from him) but, another enga. ring altogether. But, we know that he loves her so. All is well

Oh, dear ... didn't expect him to give her Diana's ring. I guess that by giving it to her, he is saying that it isn't bad luck and just move-on. Probably the smart thing to do ... the longer the ring is "in hiding" the more of a negative vibe around it. This way ... it's really no big deal.

If I understand it correctly this event at 4:45 is a photocall with photgraphers and written press. At 7:00 there will be an interview with the couple on ITV.
