A Royal Wedding Is In The Works! Prince William’s Engagement To Kate Middleton Announced Via Twitter

- By Bossip Staff

Britain’s Prince William will marry his longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton next spring or summer in London, the royal family announced Tuesday.

Here’s the interesting part. Prince Charles’ Clarence House office made the announcement via Twitter:

That tweet was followed a few hours later by one from the British Monarchy:

The couple plans to wed in Spring or Summer of 2011. It will be the biggest royal wedding since Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer almost 30 years ago.

Prince Charles’ Clarence House office said the heir to the British throne was “delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton.” It said the couple got engaged last month during a vacation in Kenya.

William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and her husband Prince Philip “are absolutely delighted for them both,” Buckingham Palace said.

Prime Minister David Cameron was delighted, too, wishing the couple “great joy in their life together.” He said he announced the news during a Cabinet meeting, and it was greeted by cheers and “a great banging of the table.”

The couple will give their first sit-down interview on Tuesday afternoon. It will be the first time that Middleton will speak publicly.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have been off and on for a minute since meeting at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. Rumor has it the Prince paid $200 in 2002 to be seated in the front row of a charity fashion show that Kate was modeling in. It is believed that they began dating the following year, but their relationship first became public during a 2004 ski trip in Switzerland. The Prince has been very protective of his girl, attempting to shield her from the media frenzy that claimed his mother’s life.

While Middleton is far from poor, as a member of the middle class she’s definitely marrying up!

Visions of a royal wedding were stoked by the visit several weeks ago of Kate’s parents — Michael and Carole Middleton — to Balmoral, Queen Elizabeth II’s 50,000-acre estate in Scotland. It marked the first time the Middletons had been invited to such an intimate royal gathering.

Britain’s royal watchers said the invitation to Balmoral was a way of welcoming the middle class Middletons into the very highest realm of British society. Middleton is not from the aristocracy. Her parents worked for British Airways before founding Party Pieces, a successful party-supply business. She works for the family business.

Congratulations to the happy couple.

So ummm announcing a royal engagement via Twitter — is that just a modern move or another sign that it’s the end of days????

    William and Kate are 12th cousins…
    Ofcourse since Ancient Egypt, royals are still “keeping it in the family”

    • ManchesterUKer

      A lot of people are distantly related. 12th cousins isn’t remotely closely related.

    Bout time he make that trailor trash legit

  • Lyoness

    Congrats to them. They’ve been together for a minute. Just saw a little interview of them on CNN. It actually almost feels like he’s the one marrying well. Her family is really close and her parents are still married and happy. He sounded really happy about that and wants that stability in his own life. Strip away the royal stuff and they seem like normal people deciding to make the plunge.

    I’m not English but whoever said the Royals do nothing for the UK… why would anyone visit England if there wasn’t royalty. It would just be a boring, dreary place otherwise. Most people like to do the touristy thing and take pics of Buck Palace, Tower of London, blah, blah. Stream of revenue for England. It’s their hustle 🙂

  • FYI...

    The royal couple – who have been dating on and off for almost eight years – are related to each other by an Elizabethan soldier named Sir Thomas Leighton. He is William’s 12th generation great-grandparent, and Kate’s 11th – meaning the pair are 12th cousins, once removed. The revelation by Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper has also uncovered how diplomat Sir Thomas was a murderous despot and dictator who was Governor of Guernsey for 40 years.
