Prince William poured cold water on any hopes Kate Middleton might of had of a imminent wedding following an off-the-cuff remark this week. The 27-year-old laughed off a question regarding a potential marriage from an injured serviceman during a public visit.
The Prince was visiting a rehabilitation centre in Llandudno, North Wales, when serviceman Simon Brown who has been blinded, cheeky asked for invite to the Prince’s wedding.
William took the question in his stride and answered good naturedly: “You’ll have to wait a while I think.”
That was probably not the response long-tern girlfriend Kate Middleton was hoping for. The pair have been dating for the past 7-years after meeting at St Andrews University as students. They’ve been playing the dating game for so long that the press have invented their own nick-name for the 28-year-old, Waity Katy, as she’s hung on so long for an engagement with the Prince.
The pair split up back in 2007 but remained friends and by the end of the year, they were back together again. Kate and William have been forced to spend a lot of time apart in recent months whilst the Prince has been away in Anglesey, at RAF Valley training with to become a helicopter pilot, leaving Kate alone in London.
Reports had surfaced that the Royal family were working behind the scenes in preparation for the nuptials. However given William’s recent comment, this seems unlikely. Although speculation has been mounting that a wedding could be planned between William and Kate in 2012 to coincide with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
