Have you heard? Prince William and Kate Middleton are engaged, and we’d like to send Kate our regards (despite our skepticism over William’s “total shock” marriage proposal). On occasions like this, our favorite place to turn is someecards. Their cards reflect our best sentiments toward the Prince’s new fiancée — not to mention the money we’ll save on international postage thanks to their e-mail delivery. More

Bollocks, Kate Middleton. It was a “total shock” when Prince William proposed to you three weeks ago while you were “on holiday” at a quiet safari lodge in Africa? But you’ve been together (on and off) for almost nine years! Are you telling me that in all that time the subject of marriage never came up? (We know it must have, because in your recent ITV News interview with Tom Bradby, Prince William mentioned that lately you and he had been discussing your future and the possibility of marriage.) So why did Prince William alone get to decide when to take one of the biggest steps of your lives? Because he’s royalty and you’re a commoner – albeit a rich one?
Last time I checked, the Queen’s name was Elizabeth, not Victoria. So what’s with the outdated 19th-century traditions? You and Prince William are in your 20s. You already live together. (Sinners!) You say you’re down-to-earth and have good senses of humor, respectively. And yet Prince William orchestrates your marriage proposal as though it’s a scene out of a Jane Austen novel? At least Jane Austen was a mistress of satire. And she never married. So there. More
Now that our bids for future Queen of England are officially over, we can start focusing on Prince William and Kate Middleton’s eventual marriage — where they’ll live, for example. Back in 2006, there was a rumor that Prince Charles was busy building an eco-palace for the pair, on the grounds of the Duchy of Cornwall’s Harewood Park Estate.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are finally getting hitched, according to announcements today by the British royal family. Their wedding, which is expected to happen in spring or summer 2011, will be the biggest royal wedding since Charles and Diana’s fairy-tale ceremony in 1981, and is expected to be one of the most widely-watched television events in years. According to officials at Clarence House, the couple, both 28, got engaged last month while on a trip to Kenya, when Prince William gave Middleton his mother’s sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
The royal engagement has sparked a wildfire of media reports, and has us contemplating the past and future of their relationship.
