A Royal Engagement!

What a wonderful way to start a Tuesday with news that Prince William and Kate Middleton have made it official with the announcement of their much anticipated engagement! So many little girls spent their Saturday mornings dressed up in tiaras, pearls and white gloves attending a tea party surrounded by stuffed animals pretending to be a princess. To actually become a princess is quite an exciting prospect and it seems that Kate will transition beautifully into Princess Catherine! She certainly already looks the part in one of her many unique hats.

After keeping the engagement a secret for nearly a month,
the couple looked relaxed and happy to share the news with the press at St. James's Palace in London earlier this week.

BBC News journalist Tom Bradby was granted the only interview with the couple following their announcement, and it is one of only a few times in which the public had a chance to hear from Kate herself. The soft spoken couple talk about the development of their relationship from friends to fiances, the romantic proposal, and why William waited so long to propose.

Like many in the wedding industry, we are eagerly awaiting news of more details as they unfold. Martha Stewart Weddings recently interviewed Mark Niemierko, a top London wedding planner, about what to expect for a royal wedding. Check out the full interview Here.

We plan to tune in and see what this wedding looks like for ourselves, no matter what time we have to get up...will you?
