The royal palace has yet to confirm rumors that Prince William is ready to pop the question to longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton, but websites and publications all over the globe have already gone bonkers running headlines about the couple.
People magazine was quick to pick up the story. Their latest cover reads: “The Next Princess: Why They’re Ready to Wed.” It even gives a blow-by-blow account on their love story and speculations on how the prince will propose.
According to CBC News, the rumor started when blogger Tina Brown wrote on The Daily Beast on Monday that “a highly placed source in royal circles said that two days in June have been mysteriously blocked out on the palace diaries—June 3 and 4.” She then speculated that those are likely dates for “an engagement announcement.”
“We don’t comment on speculation,” a Clarence House spokesman told CNN after the rumor exploded.
Still, people are excitedly waiting for the palace’s final and formal announcement on the matter. They two have been dating on and off for the past seven years, so we are all hoping for the best.
Do you think Prince William will propose to Kate soon?
