It’s the fairy-tale wedding of the century. The relationship between Britain’s Prince William of Wales and Catherine "Kate" Middleton has been on many people’s lips for many years. Newspapers all over the world have been trying to get the latest gossip on the happy couple. Britain even announced a national holiday for the wedding so people could watch it, joined by billions of TV viewers worldwide.
Kate was born on the 9th of January, 1982 in a small English countryside town. She lived in Amman, Jordan between 1984 and 1986; her parents worked for British Airways. She studied the history of art at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. In 2006, Kate joined the clothing fashion chain Jigsaw as an accessory buyer. She has become a style icon and is frequently on the “best-dressed women” lists of glossy fashion magazines.
Prince William of Wales was born on the 21st of June, 1982. He is the eldest son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales. From his birth, it was expected he would one day become king of England. His early years were spent out of the public spotlight, following the tragic death of his mother. He graduated from Scotland’s St. Andrews University and went on to join the military. He is now a helicopter rescue pilot.
William and Kate met at university. Reports are William became interested in Kate after seeing her on a catwalk at a college fashion show. The world’s media soon followed them everywhere and newspapers were full of speculation about their on-off relationship. Kate frequently appeared with William at royal events. In Kenya in October 2010, William proposed to Kate and soon after, their wedding for April 29th was announced.
