David Cameron said that the couple should have some space, although this is a very public affair.
The PM says he got wind of the news during a cabinet meeting this morning. It was met with "a great cheer" and "banging of the table" from fellow ministers, he says. Mr Cameron also tells reporters he's spoken personally to William in the last few minutes and the prince sounded very excited.

Didn't think I'd be this excited thought it would be an anticlimax after the years of speculation LOL

Not to be non romantic....but I wonder if a study was ever done on how much the Charles/Diana, Andrew/Sarah weddings cost and how much money they brought into coffers.

The list for William and Kate will see every Monarch,Heir and Spare there is and then some,Alberts might not see Monarchs but Heirs and Spares and friends.He's a HSH,not a HM.But hey,this is Kate and Williams day.I'm absolutely delighted for them both,and,I must add,I am
impressed with Catherine's discretion over the years,admirable.

The list for William and Kate is already short from ready as with these events,mostly all Houses are informed and agenda's are drawn

And,a little pump and circumstance is what the UK could do with right now or may next year,it will boost the economy in the aftermath of a crisis that hit the islands more then any place else in Europe,except Iceland ofcourse.....

From BBC: "BBC East Africa correspondent Will Ross says: Prince William popped the question at a secluded game reserve in the foothills of Mount Kenya, where he has stayed several times before. He first visited the reserve's luxury lodge with his ex-girlfriend, Jessica Craig, whose parents own it. He spent part of his gap year in Kenya and is extremely fond of Africa, so perhaps it's no surprise that this is where the couple became engaged."
