Parents of Kate Middleton on Prince William Engagement: Awesome!

by at . Comments

Following many years of dating, and countless misleading tabloid cover stories, Kate Middleton and Prince William announced their engagement this week.

How do the former's parents feel about their daughter becoming an official part of the royal family in 2011? Pretty darn great!

"I would just like to say that Carole and I are absolutely delighted by today's announcement and thrilled by the prospect of a wedding sometime next year," said father Michael Middleton. "They make a lovely couple. They're great fun to be with and we've had a lot of laughs together. We wish them every happiness for the future."

The Wate-ing Game: William and Kate have made their love official.

William and Kate (who will be referred to as "Catherine" going forward) also met with the press this morning. At the media session, the Prince said he proposed with his mother's engagement ring (SEE IT BELOW).

"It is very special to me," William said. "It was my way to make sure my mother did not miss out on today and the excitement that we are going to spend the rest of our lives together."

Forgive the THG staff, readers. It just got awfully dusty in our offices. Please, give us a moment...

Diana's Ring

This is the rock that used to belong to Princess Di and is now around the finger of Kate Middleton.

Of course her parents are saying that, they can now mingle with the upper class. It its so clear that Kate and her family are just after the title. Will is probably confused because his father married his mother mostly because of the pressure to chose an upper class lady. And we all know how that turned out...although at least all Di did was sleeping around, she didn't need the title and was already rich. I'm rooting for Will to say NO at the altar, that'd be a climax for those gold diggers!!

It is such a classy thing to do to use Diana's ring but them William takes after his mother in the class category. Kate seems like a great gal and maybe the Queen learned her lesson from not letting Fergie to with Andrew when he was in the service. I wish William and his Kate many, many years of total happiness. God Bless you both.
