Prince William and long-term girlfriend Kate Middleton have got engaged, with the royal wedding expected to take place in the spring or summer of 2011. Prince William is said to have popped the question to Kate while on holiday in Kenya last month, and this morning Clarence House confirmed that Prince Charles was "delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton". The couple met while studying at the University of St Andrews and began dating in 2003. Despite a brief split in 2007, rumours of their engagement have been circulating intensely, with Kate even garnering the unfortunate nickname "Waity Katie" in the tabloid press. Now that Prince William and Miss Middleton are now definitely destined for the aisle, we'll be the ones waiting - to see how all the spectacular wedding plans coming together... and of course Kate's fabulous wedding dress.
