Hot damn! I just jumped up and down like someone in my own family just announced an engagement. I'd say it's about time! Congrats to William and Kate, may you have a happy, wonderful life and a peaceful reign together.

That's perfect - thanks for confirming this! I believe the DOC will be included in the official family photo. What do you think?

OMG! I just woke up, made my espresso and turned on my computer, and what do I see splashed on my browser home page? Prince William and Catherine Middleton ENGAGED! I had to rub the sleep out of my eyes to make sure I was seeing that right. And then I had to come right here to see if it was for real. YAY! I am so happy that the speculation is over and we now have a Royal wedding to look forward to! Woo hoo!

I think certain aspects of the wedding will have to be paid for by the taxpayer such as security, upkeep and maintenance of the horses and carriages (if used) and doing up the venue. But as a British taxpayer myself, I'm happy to pay for something that is going to be a happy national event and distraction from all the doom and gloom at the moment!

The official announcement referred to her as Catherine Middleton and I wonder whether that is how she should be referred to from now on?

I think this will be apparent from the interview later today.

Surely either name can be used? Catherine on her passport, Kate for everyday use?

We have to call her Catherine too? We can't call her Kate anymore? Kate isn't offensive.
