If some of the journalists I have seen on TV get their way, he will be announcing his engagement to an Australian girl he meets on Bondi Beach!

As there is a General Election in Britain by June there I highly doubt that they would be any engagement announcement that would then see the royal event overshadowing the political one.

The earliest I see an engagement announcement is after the election in June, while William is in the middle of the intense training leaving Kate to fend for herself.

Quite right, the earliest is August time I think.
The latest is after Williams training 2014.

well if he finishes his training in 2014 then I think it's the next general election in UK, so an engagement will come after august 2014 in that case

Haven't a clue, I don't know the woman. However it seems that if they want to get married, the only time it can be fitted in right now is in 2015.

I think she may, she's waited this long. But some form of promise maybe needed.

For all we know they may be engaged privately already! I'm quite sure we will not have to wait until 2015 and an engagement announcement can be made just as easily after a general election as before. I'm not sure the two events are really connected - usually politicians quite like a distraction! Even a 2012 engagement or wedding is possible even if the Olympic games are taking place - two big events in one country during the course of one year is not unusual and could even be the prefered choice of doing it.

The royals must be seen to be separate from politics so having a wedding overshadow an election would allow for the royal family to actually become a fully political issue with the costs etc all being debated as part of the election.

2012 already has 2 big events with the Queen's Jubilee and a third might be overkill (particularly if they want people to visit from overseas for all three events). Some people may already have to choose between the Jubilee and the Olympics (I know I do and the Olympics have won). Had they been in separate years I would have gone to both.

That's insane!

Whenever the engagement is announced, isn't the wedding prepared rather fast anyway? I thought that's how it worked.

There are certainly some beautiful days for weddings in the autumn. I was married in October. Unfortunately, it drizzled all day; but it wasn't cold.

I think an engagement this year and if it's announced before the election a wedding later in the year otherwise definite engagement and wedding next year.

The British royals tend to announce and marry in the one year so either the engagement and wedding this year or both next year.

I don't see them really liking the idea of having millions of people waiting in the streets for hours, and some even overnight, during late autumn or early winter any more so I don't see a wedding late this year. That leaves a June engagement and a September/October wedding.

I don't see any possibility of an engagement before the election for the simple reasons that it would overshadow the election, as I have said before, and that is a non-starter. Could you imagine a candidate or two actually promising to cut the costs of the wedding and the consequent one-upmanship that could follow till someone suggests have the royals pay for everything themselves to stop using taxpayers money for anything? These sorts of things happen in election campaigns so it is easier to not have the royals in the spotlight at all during the election, hence why I believe no engagement until after the election.

My money is on either a late summer / early Autumn wedding this year, or a summer wedding in 2011.
