Prince William to Marry Kate Middleton ... By 2012

by at . Comments

Rumors of a royal wedding are intensifying as CBS says it's no longer a question of "if," but "when" Prince William and Kate Middleton will walk down the aisle.

They're both 27, and have been together, "more or less," for eight years.

The latest rumor is that William and Kate have come to an "understanding," if not an engagement. They are headed down the path to marriage - just not now.

That's stating the obvious, according to one source, who says, "Everyone believes Prince William and Kate Middleton will be together, eventually married."

The latest report claims is likely based on plans for the couple to wed before William's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, marks 60 years on the throne in 2012.

That means Prince William and Kate Middleton have just three years to tie the knot - and the clock is ticking: "She has to learn to speak in public," says a royal family observer. "We've never heard Kate Middleton speak, and she's a shy girl."

"She will be having media training."

Another celebrity gossip report in Britain says William will be spending some time with his father, Prince Charles this month, and teasingly asks, "Will they discuss a wedding announcement? Wait and see!" We're totally convinced.
