I’m watching the interview with Prince William and Kate Middleton – for anyone who’s missed it, here are the best bits!
The proposal was lovely and romantic, Kate seems really excited and the gesture of having Diana’s engagement ring seems to mean so much to both William and Kate.
Will says, “I’m reliably informed it’s a sapphire with some diamonds” and he’d been carrying it around in his rucksack while the couple were on holiday in Kenya until the time was right to propose!
The couple say they’re calm on the surface and “paddling like ducks underneath”, particularly the last two weeks while they’ve had to keep everything quiet.
Kate’s parents are over the moon. William had asked Kate’s dad for his permission, and Kate knew he’d asked but didn’t know when he’d pop the question.
Kate says, “family is very important to me and I hope we’ll be able to have a happy family ourselves.” When asked if they’d like lots of children William quite justifiably said “one step at a time”!
