Prince William pops the question to ‘his princess’

STOP what you’re doing, now! Prince William has popped the question. Yip that’s right. He is officially off the market. Wills will wed his girlfriend of eight years or so, Kate Middleton next year. He proposed to Middleton using his mother’s sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring some three weeks ago while the couple were holidaying in Kenya. Congrats to them both.

The British media is going mad over the news quite possibly because this is the biggest thing to happen to the Royal Family since Princess Diana’s death in 1997. Just look at some of these headlines:

You’ve got to love how the press also scrutinise every little detail about young Kate. Look at this excerpt below from one of the articles I’ve seen online:

William proposed to Kate with his mother, Princess Diana’s, engagement ring while on holiday in Kenya three weeks ago. That puts Kate in line to become the first commoner to be queen in modern times. The couple, both 28, met while studying at St. Andrews University in Scotland and will marry in the spring or summer of next year.

“It was very romantic,” Kate said. “There’s a true romantic in there.”

While most of it is very endearing and sweet, the fact that they call her a commoner is crazy for me! Bless the British press!
