Launching with The Engagement of the Century

By VanessaRose · November 17, 2010 · 0 Comments ·

Okay, so you may think "The Engagment of the Century" is a bit dramatic, but when you're talking international newsmakers, there hasn't been a couple this popular since Charles and Diana. So we thought, what better way to launch our new engagement blog than with what is (arguably) the most important proposal in 30 years.

Oh um, if you haven't heard? Prince William finally proposed to girlfriend of eight years, Kate Middleton.

The juicy details:

  • Wills proposed to Catherine Elizabeth Middleton while on vacation in Kenya three weeks ago
  • William and Kate have been dating for eight years since they met at St. Andrews University, both studied Art History
  • In Britain, Kate was often referred to by media as "Waity Katie" insinuating that she was holding on to the relationship in hopes of becoming the future Queen of England
  • William gave Kate his mother's 18 carat blue sapphire engagement ring <p>


See below for videos of the couple's first appearances as fiances and a collection of look-alike rings your future fiance may actually be able to afford.
