OMG, I am so thrilled by this news! When I came home, my mother said to me 'it seems like Prince William is getting married'.
After having read so many rumours and gossip about it, the first thing I said was 'says who?' She said 'it's in De Telegraaf (biggest Dutch newspaper)'. I came online, checked it out and read Clarence House in the sentence. Then I knew it was official and I was so excited that I jumped through my room and the roof almost went off.
I said 'it's like my brother is getting married'.

I'm very happy for them, and am very curious for the official photo(s).

Wow, I am actually surprised by this news (that William and Kate got engaged). I really thought they would wait a few more years. I wish them all the best, and I actually feel kind of sorry for both of them now. I think it was the right time to get married, but the press attention now will never end.

I'm also very surprised that William would give Kate Diana's ring. It shows he loved his mother, but I'm not sure I would want the ring from such an ill-fated marriage.

How horrible! the photographers are being asked to stop flashing for a moment, but they don't even listen.
They must be blinded by all those flashes.

Anyone else got a bit moved and had watery eyes after he said that?

I still like that ring. I think it looks great on her and so much better than a plain diamond.

The ring may bring up neg feelings to some but it doesn't for her sons. Diana meant the world to her children. I love it when things are passed down. It can mean even more that a new item. Im sure he would have loved for his mother share his joy. This is as close as he can get.

To me, that he gave her his mother's engagement ring only displays how important she is to him.
I think it's a lovely gesture.

Kate looks great in blue and this engagement ring is so beautiful and means so much for Willaim! It's a big responsability and honour for her to wear that ring!

I hope she'll be happier than Diana was!

Kate has a really nice voice, I have not hear her speak before. I also like how she doesn't mind being called Kate or Catherine. I love how William said he liked his mother to be included in this event.
