Prince William proposes to his long time girlfriend Kate Middleton. The 28-year-old Berkshire beauty, whose parents run a children’s party supply business, is apparently descended from the 14th-century monarch King Edward III and his wife Queen Phillipa. How convenient!
The couple is rumored to wed in the spring or summer of 2010 in London. Wow ... that definitely does not give her design team much time to plan the most extravagant wedding to hit London since Princess Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles. The fiancée of Prince William of Wales definitely has some big shoes to fill!

The 18-carat oval sapphire surrounded by diamonds was the one worn by Princess Diana.
