Just announced by Prince Charles

The Prince of Wales - Home

BBC News - Prince William to marry Kate Middleton next year


Prince William is to marry long-term girlfriend Kate Middleton next year, Clarence House has said.

The royal engagement was announced in a brief statement released by Clarence House.

It said: "The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton.

The wedding will take place in the spring or summer of 2011, in London. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course.

Prince William has informed the Queen and other close members of his family.

Prince William has also sought the permission of Miss Middleton's father."

The Queen said she was "absolutely delighted" for both Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Prime Minister David Cameron said the engagement marked "a great day for our country" and wished the couple a long and happy life together. He said he had received the news in a call from Buckingham Palace during a cabinet meeting, and it was greeted with "a great cheer" and "banging of the table" from fellow ministers.

Leader of the Labour party Ed Miliband said "the whole country will be wishing them every happiness".

Blimey.... I never thought I would live to see the day . Congratulations to the couple & their relatives!

Apparently they got engaged during a private holiday to Kenya.

After so many fake news stories, it feels so surreal to hear the real thing has finally happened. Congrats to the happy couple - so glad the speculation is finally over.

The timing fits in well in advance of the Diamond Jubilee and will throw Harry into the paths of other talented young women.
