Prince William and Kate Middleton to finally make it down the aisle in 2011
According to recent reports, the Prince William and Kate Middleton will finally tie the knot in 2011 bringing an end to the “will they, won’t they” saga which has plagued the couple for the last year.
A senior palace source has reportedly confirmed that wedding plans are in full swing, although the official announcement of the engagement isn’t due until early next year, with the nuptials due to take place during the summer.
It is thought 3 dates during July and August have been earmarked for the big day and the Queen is expected to declare the day a national holiday.
The couple got together in 2001 when they met while studying at university in St Andrews. Although a source revealed the Prince would have liked to have waited until his mid-thirties before tying the knot, he realises he can’t keep Kate waiting any longer. The 28-year-old has already been dubbed Waity Katy by the press because of the length of time she’s been dating the Prince.
Speculation is already mounting over who the bride will choose to design the all-important dress. It’s believed Kate will opt for a British designer with names such as Bruce Oldfield, Vivienne Westwood, Amanda Wakely and Jenny Packham all being mentioned as possible contenders for the role.
The Royal Mint will also prepare a special coin to mark the Royal wedding date.
2011 has been chosen for the much anticipated wedding as the following year would have been too hectic as London is hosting the Olympics, plus the Queen is due to celebrate her Golden Jubilee in 2012.
