Wills and Kate Wedding Watch: Let the Countdown Begin!

Oh, it’s on.
According to Tina Brown on The Daily Beast this week, there is speculation that Prince William and Kate Middleton will announce their engagement on June 3rd or June 4th, with a wedding to follow in November. Keep in mind, however, it’s all theoretical at this point, solely based off Tina’s intel regarding blacked-out dates in the Palace Diaries (the royal calendar).
Today, England was abuzz with speculation, a source close to Wills telling the Daily Mail , “Prince William has never given the merest hint about what is on his mind regarding his relationship with Kate Middleton and his office is under the clear impression that if he does decide to pop the question, they will only be told a matter of days or even hours before he wants the world to know.”
A wedding this year would make sense: Prince William is due to begin a 3 year search-and-rescue tour of duty with the RAF in January 2011. Considering the age of the Prince Phillip (he turns 90 in June 2011), the miserable mental state of the British people (weddings are cheery, uplifting affairs) and the fact that Queen Elizabeth–with whom William is very close, and presumably wants to please–celebrates 60 years on the throne in February 2012 (something William wouldn’t want to distract from)…
Well, it certainly all adds up.
For now, all we can do is wait and see. Kate Middleton, you are so very close…!
