Kenya holidays pay off for Prince William
Prince William chose Africa holidays in Keny as the perfect romantic spot for proposing to her long-term girlfriend of 8 years, Katie Middleton.
Romantic Africa holidays in Kenya during last October have paid definitely paid of for Prince William, as his proposal for marriage was accepted with delight by his 8-year long girlfriend, with Clarence House confirming he is to marry sweetheart Kate Middleton some time next year.
It might have been the sunshine or the inspiring wilderness of holidays in Africa, we're not really sure, but Prince William picked this as the ideal romantic destination to get down on one knee (although he says the getting down on one knee part will remain a secret) and pop the question to his long-term girlfriend.
William – who is second in line to the British throne - will marry in the year which would have marked the 30th anniversary of his parents’ wedding. The wedding is expected to take place some time during the spring in summer, with no official date confirmed as of yet.
The couple have been dating for eight years, following their meeting at St Andrews University in Fife, Scotland with Miss Middleton being widely credited with convincing William to remain at the college following a difficult first year.
Since then the couple have been dating on and off over the last eight years.
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 statement went on to explain that, following the marriage, the couple would live in north Wales, where Prince William will continue to serve with the Royal Air Force.
Following the announcement prime minister David Cameron’s spokeswoman said he was “delighted” and sent the couple his very best.
Ed Miliband said he was also delighted for Prince William and Kate Middleton. “The whole country will be wishing them every happiness.”
