The engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton

Prince William, the heir to the heir to the throne has finally announced his engagement to Kate Middleton, his long time girlfriend at the State Rooms of the London's St.James's Palace on Tuesday, both are 28. Their wedding will be some time in Spring or Summer 2011.

Prince William gave his future bride the same 18-carat Sapphire diamond ring, which his father, Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales had given to his mother, Diana, the Princess of Wales, for their engagement in 1981. It is an oval sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds in a cluster setting chosen by Diana herself.

The country is delighted and wishing them every happiness.

This has brought back my memories on the engagement and marriage of Prince Charles and Diana in 1981. Only If the Princess of Wales were still around, the occasion would be much more merrier.
