LONDON â€” Britain’s Prince William will marry his longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton next spring or summer in London, the royal family announced Tuesday.
The announcement ends years of rumored splits, reconciliations and will-they, wont-they speculation. It will be the biggest royal wedding since Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer almost 30 years ago.
Prince Charles’ Clarence House office said the heir to the British throne was “delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton.” It said the couple got engaged last month during a vacation in Kenya.
William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and her husband Prince Philip “are absolutely delighted for them both,” Buckingham Palace said.
Prime Minister David Cameron was delighted, too, wishing the couple “great joy in their life together.” He said he announced the news during a Cabinet meeting, and it was greeted by cheers and “a great banging of the table.”
The couple will give their first sit-down interview on Tuesday afternoon. It will be the first time that Middleton will speak publicly.
