As in ok.. ok.. here's the press.. lets not give 'em anything to gab abouts. A public face and a private face are two different things..

Actually the CCTV cam that was published shouldn't have been... but its out there

The usage of the CCTV was wrong and it was stated that they apologized

I heard from the news in German television, that William and Kate will announce their engagement in November 2010 and will marry in June 2011, because of Philipps Birthday.
Hope itīs true. We will see :)

You have to question the sources though.

It gets me though that the press would know more than the couple would want known.

Sheesh if I was Will and Kate..I'd do a friar bit and get married secretly. Romeo has his Juliet... and the problems that go with it. Wish the press would let them be.

Goodness if the press was right at any time announcing the "engagement" and wedding date....William and Kate will have celebrated their 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st wedding anniversaries by now.

At this point, I will believe it when I see it a ticker on MSNBC that Buckingham Palace (or rather Clarence House) is pleased to announce .....

Until then

SOOOO TRUE!!! The press is repeating the big news of Williamīs engagement since he left university. Weīll see.

Although I still hope that William will find someone better for the job than Waity-Katy, I believe itīs a done deal: one day theyīll get married.

I think it has to be next year with an engagement this winter or he will wait for some more years... It wonīt be 2012 because royals donīt get married in years with jubilees and so many other engagements like Olympic Games. The summer 2012 is already full and I donīt think William will get married in winter.

I believe if William doesnīt get officially engaged to Kate around Christmas, he wonīt get married before 2013...
Perhaps he really wants to wait until he has finished his military duties like William said once. But then Kate would have to wait much longer.

Every year William's engagement is supposedly going to be announced. Hopefully it's soon though.

This is wonderful! Obviously, it's a slow week in the news and the press has nothing better to do than make up stories. And we wonder why these two are taking lots of private time now and not getting married?! I certainly don't blame them- in fact, I think it's a brilliant move. When they do get engaged, they will never be left alone.

Since Iīm quite bored meanwhile of that ongoing rumours whether they marry or not I donīt follow them that regularly any more but I have two questions to our fellow "experts" here in the forum:

1.Are there any reasons concerning William not being able to marry her because he simply is still on some kind of education and therefore has to wait to marry because he canīt make a living for them both?

2. Are there some family members of William who donīt want her as his wife and therefore he isnīt "allowed" to marry her?

Please someone give a summary what might be the reasons for that long waiting or else what are the other obstacles.

Thank you, Stefanie

As far as I know, there's no one stopping William from marrying Kate. What could be stopping him are the events coming up. In 2011, there's going to be celebrations for the 90th birthday of the Duke of Edinburgh. In 2012, there's the Olympics in London plus the Queen's 60th jubilee. All events are costly for taxpayers during a dismal global economy. If there were a wedding during these years, they would weigh heavily on taxpayers, and leave many disgruntled.

That is why so many believe William and Kate won't marry until 2013, which is such a long way off. But anything could happen.

I donīt think that Phillipīs birthday is a handicap. He might not even celebrate because he might feel too weak for a big party. Elizabeth herself didnīt celebrate her "round" birthdays for a couple of years now. (Except of the "Trooping the colour") And a birthday is only one day in the year or letīs say a few days. So there are lots of days left in 2011. German press announced today that they might get engaged in November and marry on June 10th!!! in 2011! I think they heard this nonsense from some british newspapers. I even believe that Phillip would be horrified by the imagination of spending his birthday at his grandsonīs wedding because of that being a horrible exhausting event for this old man.

William is a very wealthy man in his own right thanks to the death of his mother and his inheritance from her estate and thus he would already be earning enough to support her and his family.

Even when he does marry, if in the present reign, there won't be any new sources of income than what he already has - his own inheritance from Diana and whatever Charles gives him from the Duchy of Cornwall. He won't have any other source of income once he leave the army.

Generally the members of the family don't talk about private matters so we really don't have any idea about this but...we know that she has spent time with Charles e.g. shooting at Balmoral and that she has attended major events in William and his extended family's life where other members of the family have been present (graduation from Sandhurst and Peter's wedding to name two). No reports have come from those events of her being snubbed by someone or anything else.

Why not push it?? I don't see anything wrong with Harry marrying a black, Asian or Hispanic woman. I think he will do just that to tell you the truth. If his marrying outside his race is a problem then the British are simply racist and I don't think they are. If that's what Harry wants then thats what he wants. The British people will have to adapt. Like Russo said, society should be advanced to the point where it doesn't matter if Harry marries a martian!

Black queen consort? That would be easy. How about explaining to the British people why their future monarch looks so different from them? A black King of the UK, a blue-eyed Emperor of Japan or a blond King of Tonga would, I am afraid, only alienate the people from the monarchies. There is a reason why the British Royal Family tried so hard to hide their German ancestry.
Most people do not know their ancestors, but royals do. Royals can trace their ancestors way back there. I love the idea of royals marrying commoners! I hope it'll always be like that.

What is wrong with a black queen consort????
As long as she adapts and does her job well I don't see the problem with it. So what if the future queen or princess of Britain doesn't look British! The Brits will just have to get used to it. It's 2010 for goodness sake...the country will not fall if theres a black or asian queen . If someone alienates themself from the monarchy then that's there problem...and that's racism. I feel sorry for the people like that. We're all human beings and we all should be accepted.

That's the God-honest truth.

I wouldn't be surprised if he does. I'm expecting that to happen actually. Marrying outside his race will not ruin the monarchy. It'll make it more diverse if anything. People thought a black president would ruin the U.S. but so far Barack Obama is doing just fine. The U.S. is not ruined. If marrying outside his race ruins the monarch then somethings wrong with Britain. We should be willing to accept all kinds of races.

That's what I like about Harry. He is not affected by "race". I think more people should be like him.

Do not forget HM rules many people of many colors and races. And PC wants to be Defender of Faith, not THE Faith. Many faiths.
Exactly!! I wholeheartedly agree.
The black princess or Asian, will add to the monarchy. She will most definitely spice it up. The monarchy needs some seasoning anyway.

I think the Brits better start getting used to the idea because Harry just might bring home a black princess.

I'm just curious. Has any European royalty dated a black or Asian woman?

Then there's Princess Angela of Liechtenstein. I forgot who she's married to, but she's a Latina/African-American woman who married a European prince.

Alexandra was born in Hong Kong, to a British Father and Austrian Mother.
Her father had a chinese mother.

Princess Angela married Prince Maximillian of Liechtenstein in 2000, she is the only black woman to marry into a reigning royal family.
