So he’s finally done it. After years of dating, a break up, a make up, skiing holidays, beach jaunts, African safaris and countless official appearances Britain’s Prince William has put an end to speculation about when he would ask dark-haired Kate Middleton to become his future queen.

And there was much jubilation worldwide when the announcement was made, with wars, floods, volcanoes, Somali pirates, corruption and sports scandals being pushed down the news pecking order. Wills had asked beautiful Kate to marry him and that was the breaking news of the day.

Actually the 28-year-old prince had popped the question on a trip to Kenya in October although it was kept hush-hush for weeks, for whatever royal reason dictates these matters.

“The wedding will take place in spring or summer of 2011 in London,” said the official statement from Clarence House, the office of Princes Charles, William and Harry. “Further details about the wedding will be made in due course.”

The event is likely to draw a far bigger audience than the 750 million people who watched Prince Charles marry Princess Diana in 1981, given the vast improvements in technology.

It’s likely to be a fairytale on a par with that poignant day. William, tall and dashing, and Kate, slim, dark and elegant, make a striking couple. As bride and groom they’ll be positively irresistible.

Prince William gave Kate the sapphire and diamond engagement ring his father, Prince Charles, gave to Diana.

“It was my way to make sure my mother did not miss out on today,” the prince explained. Their wedding bands, in keeping with royal tradition, will be made of gold mined in northwest Wales.

Kings, queens, presidents, premiers and other heads of state will rub shoulders on the day. Although William and Kate have indicated they want a small, low-key affair it’s simply impossible with the number of people who have to be invited. Guests are likely to number more than 2 000.

Those rumoured to be on the list include US first lady Michelle Obama, Elton John and Hollywood golden couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
