Prince William & Kate Middleton to Marry Next YearMara Siegler
Chelsea Clinton may lose her title of Wedding of the Century in no time. According to those in the know on Britain’s royal family, Prince William and his longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton are expected to tie the knot next summer at Westminster Abbey.
“A date has been earmarked for a royal wedding next year,” a senior Abbey source told Britain’s Daily Mail. A date hasn’t been specifically nailed down, but the second of week of August is being discussed. They’ll announce their engagement in next July, probably to avoid too much media chaos and speculation (which, obviously, has already started).
A friend of the couple said, “To be honest, next summer would be perfect. It’s pretty much impossible for them to marry in 2012 due to the [Queen’s Diamond] Jubilee and the London Olympics, which means that unless they take the plunge next year, Kate would have to wait until 2013 to walk down the aisle. She has been very patient so far, but I think that is asking rather too much — even of her,” the friend said.
William and Kate have been on-and-off for years, meeting when they were both students at St. Andrews University. Being that they are both now 28 years old, the Queen to be has been nicknames, “Waity Katie.”
One thing is for sure-When they do decide to marry, it will be a wedding to remember!
