about the meeting with the Queen
Quote:
I first met her at Peter and Autumn's wedding and again it was amongst a lot of other guests and she was very friendly.
honesty, I'm not very familiar with Will&Kate story, but I was thinking that she met HM earlier.

anyway,
the interview was very nice, William was relaxed, he was smiling and joking, Kate seems to be more nervous, but I totally understand her.

Now I'm waiting for a wedding date and I will start the countdown

All the best for them, lot of love

I know everybody here is all happy that Wills gave Kate his mothers ring, however Russo disagrees. I think that he should have made a lovely necklace out of it and chosen something else for her. That, is, however, just my opinioin.

I think that the 8 years of dating will work in their favor. They did not rush into anything & even took a break.

Remember, Queen eilizabeth did the same thing. & King & Queen ( at that time) I think made them separate for a time( I think that they went on a Tour of various countries) & when their returned wanted to know if the couple still felt the same way.

Just curious what being "mormonish" has to do with it? I find Miss Middleton surprisingly elegant and self-possessed. Do we all have to flash what we have to be attractive. Kudos to you ma'am for being your lovely self!

I know- I nearly ignored the headline figuring it was another tabloid blow-up- then I actually saw who the headline was FROM and did a double take!

Good for them.

Actually, I think they mean more Quaker, or Amish, than Mormon.

After all the rumours and hype, it did feel slightly odd to see the real thing announced.

But because he's over 25 he doesn't have to, but I think he did anyway bless him.

As for the government approving the marriage, that doesn't happen in the UK. It's all down to the Queen no one else.
thank you i missed your post earlier

She might do the odd thing hear and there, but I doubt she would do anything official. Not until officially married. William isn't at Sandringham this year so we don't have that.

Again, we agree. It would have been nice if she had her own ring.

TB: There's a story that goes around that you had a picture of him on your wall.
William: There wasn't just one, there was about 20.
Miss Middleton: He wishes. No, I had the Levis guy on my wall, not a picture of William, sorry.

They have been talking about announcing for about a year.
He said he asked Kate before her dad in case her dad said No.

I saw the news alert on my phone this morning, and my fear was that either I was dreaming or that there would be a retraction issued by the time I got to my laptop to check!

William certainly managed to catch everyone by surprise with the timing of the announcement, but it seems he likes to keep the media guessing.

Just heard the news this morning, on the radio. Considering how long we have been talking about the possibility/likelihood of this event, and how much we have said, I'm mildly surprised we've managed to find enough to say now it's finally happened to get to 24 pages on this thread already! Surely no-one is surprised by it! And I see there are related threads. They'll have to wait since I have to go on a trip.

She seems nice, and they seem happy. There can be no doubt they know each other well and know what they are getting into. I look forward to the ride we will all share leading up to the wedding.

I'm so happy for both of them! What a surprise to come here and see this! Probably the happiest day of my (short) royal watching!
