I agree. Other than that, I think she did quite well in the interview, yes she was nervous but she was natural, not fake. Hope she really knows what she is getting into and that 8 years were enough to understand.

Yes. According to the Daily Mail:

'It's the most brilliant news. I'm just so happy and so are they. It's wicked.'

This is wonderful news. I've always liked Kate and am pleased that the future Queen is such a pleasant natured woman; is very well educated; most attractive; has a sane, successful and supportive family; and has always comported herself with aplomb and discretion. Watching the announcement with them both I was struck with Kate's ease and confidence while facing the world's press for the first time.

I've just returned from the UK and think that this engagement and wedding will provide a positive fillip to the entire community. Things seem a little despondent there and a royal wedding is just what's needed to cheer the nation up.

Heartfelt congratulations to them both. I wish them good luck, and hope that they'll always be as happy as they are today. Watching the later interview, I was struck by how much he obviously loves her and how protective he's been of her all of these years.

I also congratulate the Queen and Prince Charles. Dynastically, these private and personal matters also become very important to the State. This future Princess of Wales and Queen has been well prepared for her role and knows her future in-laws and what will be required of her very well. All shouts fine to me.

I thought the interview was lovely showed a loving down to earth couple. Obviously William was more secure than Kate but I feel she handled herself well.

I think they suit each other. She spoke well and calmly and with time she will become a lovely princess.

I Lost my mother at 14 also, there are no words to describe how a youngchild feels when they loose a parent. That sets you up for life, the trust & abandoment( even with death)issues. It took me years to let myself get close to people again. & to this day I am still closed up to a certain point & look at thing in ALL DIRECTIONS ( not just tunnel vision). I analyze everthing. But, that is just me.

I to am happy that he gave kate the RING,h is reasons are wonderful( He wanted Diana to be part of his happiness)

The fact that they're engaged is just...not registering with me. I think I might be in shock.

Congratulations to them, anyway.

It shows you how much Diana was loved by the American press that her son's engagement is news-worthy, when there's a ton of other stuff going on here that demand more pressing attention.
