Prince William's Cousin Zara Phillips Is Engaged

Tuesday December 21, 2010 08:50 AM EST

Prince William and Kate Middleton will soon have another royal wedding to attend – one that isn’t their own.

William’s cousin Zara Phillips, 29, is now engaged too, after her boyfriend, England rugby player Mike Tindall, popped the question at their home in Gloucestershire on Monday.

“I am delighted that Zara has agreed to marry me,” Tindall said in a statement. “We are both very excited about the next stage of our lives together.”

Added Phillips: “I was really shocked when Mike proposed but I am very happy.”

There is no news on a wedding date or whether the blonde showjumper – who, as the daughter of William’s aunt, Princess Anne, is 12th in line to the throne – will beat William and Kate to the altar in late April.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman tells PEOPLE that Phillips and Tindall, 32, excitedly informed their families of the news shortly after she accepted his proposal.

The ring is described as a single solitaire diamond with pavé set diamonds on a split shank, set on a platinum band. No designer or store has been revealed for the jewelry.

Buckingham Palace released a short statement on behalf of Phillips’s parents on Tuesday morning, which read: “The Princess Royal and Captain Mark Phillips are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter Zara Phillips to Mr. Mike Tindall, son of Mr. Phillip and Mrs. Linda Tindall.”

Zara’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and the Duke of Edinburgh are “delighted with the news,” a spokeswoman tells PEOPLE.

Tony Romo Engaged to Candice Crawford

Friday December 17, 2010 09:45 AM EST

Candice Crawford received a very special gift from Tony Romo for her 24th birthday this year: a ring and a marriage proposal.

Crawford, pageant queen and KDAF-TV anchor, was celebrating the milestone with Romo, 30, and her family at Five Sixty restaurant in Dallas on Thursday when he popped the question, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Local station KDAF-TV’s Web site has a photo of the ring.

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback – who broke up with Jessica Simpson in July 2009, just before he started dating Crawford – isn’t the first of Simpson’s exes to announce an engagement recently.

Nick Lachey, her husband of three years, proposed to longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo in November – just about a week before Simpson announced an engagement of her own to NFL player Eric Johnson.

Earlier this year, Simpson said she has no hard feelings for Romo during an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, admitting she still cheers him on from the sidelines.

“Tony is great – still a friend of mine,” she said. “I still look at his cute butt in the outfit – uniform.”

Prince William and Kate Middleton will marry on Friday 29 April at Westminster Abbey, Clarence House has announced.

Prime Minister David Cameron said it would be “a happy and momentous occasion”. It will be marked by a public holiday across the UK.

The Royal Family and the Middletons will pay for the wedding itself, but the taxpayer will meet the cost of extra security and transport.

The couple, both 28, got engaged while on holiday in Kenya in October.

Westminster Abbey has hosted the weddings of the Queen and Queen Mother and was the venue for Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997.

The prince’s private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, said the couple chose the Abbey for its “staggering beauty”, 1,000-year royal history and its feeling of intimacy despite its size.

He said William and Kate were “calling the shots” on the wedding plans, but had a “rather large supporting cast” to help them.

“We know that the world will be watching on April 29, and the couple are very, very keen indeed that the spectacle should be a classic example of what Britain does best,” Mr Lowther-Pinkerton said.

“Prince William and Catherine have made it very clear that they wish everybody to be able to enjoy the day with them.

“Consequently, the day will be a proper celebration for the nation and the realms.

“Having said that, the couple are very mindful of the current situation, and for example, Prince William has already expressed a clear wish that any involvement by the armed forces should rely in great part on those servicemen and women already committed to public and ceremonial duties.”

‘National celebration’

The Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall, welcomed the couple’s choice of venue.

“We are very pleased they have chosen Westminster Abbey for their marriage and look forward to the detailed planning for what will be a great and happy occasion for the couple themselves, for their families and friends, for the country and Commonwealth and for well-wishers across the globe,” he said.

Dean of Westminster: “Abbey is a very special place”

The BBC’s Daniela Relph said William and Kate wanted to marry on a Friday in spring and 29 April was chosen because it fell after Easter and Lent and before a busy political programme in May and June.

The extra holiday will fall in the same week as Easter Monday, giving millions of workers a three-day week.

Mr Cameron said: “We want to mark the day as one of national celebration, a public holiday will ensure the most people possible will have a chance to celebrate on the day.”

The Scottish government followed suit in declaring a public holiday.

The wedding date falls six days before the Holyrood elections on 5 May. As 28 working days are needed between dissolving parliament and polling day, parliament could be dissolved a day earlier than expected.

Elections to the Welsh and Northern Ireland Assemblies, some English council polls and the UK-wide referendum on voting reform are due to take place the same day.

But Mr Cameron dismissed concerns that the public holiday would come too close to polling day.

‘A party’

“The timing of the wedding is entirely a matter for the Royal Family. People are perfectly capable of seeing the difference… a day of celebration and a referendum and local election campaign,” he said.

Earlier, there was prolonged applause at the Church of England’s general synod when the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams expressed “delight” at the forthcoming marriage on behalf of those present.

Addressing the Queen, he said: “Prince William and Miss Middleton will be very much in our thoughts and prayers in the months to come and we know that you and the rest of the family will be supporting them with prayer and wisdom and love as we shall all be trying to do.”

Anti-monarchy group Republic said creating a bank holiday for something “most people are not interested in” was “absurd” and that an extra day off should only be for something everyone could relate to.

Prince William and Kate Middleton speak to the press following the announcement of their wedding. 

Prince William proposed to Kate with his mother Diana’s diamond and sapphire engagement ring.

Asked why he had done so, he said: “It is very special to me and Kate is very special to me now as well. It is only right the two are put together.”

Mr Lowther-Pinkerton said the couple were “completely over the moon” about their engagement.

“I’ve never seen two happier people,” he added.

The Press Association reported that a concert in Hyde Park had been proposed to coincide with William and Kate’s wedding.

It said a senior royal aide had refused to confirm the suggestion but had added: “Their view on it would be, ‘Let’s have a party.'”

Meanwhile, Prince Harry has joined Miss Middleton for a wedding rehearsal at Westminster Abbey, where she will marry Prince William on 29 April.

Harry is best man to his brother, the second in line to the throne, and plays an important role in the ceremony.

Fly past

Kate’s maid of honour – her sister Pippa Middleton – and her young bridesmaids and pageboys also attended the run-through.

William, an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot, did not attend as he was on duty.

Kate Middleton will be staying in the hotel’s Royal suite 

Earlier, Clarence House said William and Harry would arrive at Westminster Abbey in a state limousine at 1015 BST – leaving almost 40 minutes before the ceremony begins.

It also gave details of the planned flypasts after the wedding.

Three aircraft from the RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight – a Lancaster, a Spitfire and a Hurricane – will be followed by two Typhoons and two Tornado GR4s in box formation.

Timetable (BST)

 

  • 1015 – The groom and Prince Harry arrive at Westminster Abbey
  • 1051 – The bride, and her father, leave the Goring Hotel for the abbey
  • 1100 – The marriage service begins
  • 1230 – The bride’s carriage procession arrives at Buckingham Palace
  • 1325 – The Queen and the bride and groom appear on the balcony
  • 1330 – Fly past by the Royal Air Force and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight

Clarence House also said the route of the carriage procession would pass along The Mall, Horse Guards Road, Horse Guards Parade, through Horse Guards Arch, Whitehall, along the south side of Parliament Square and into Broad Sanctuary.

The wedding service will be relayed to the gathered crowds by speakers along the procession route, with tens of thousands expected to hear the couple exchange their vows.

There will also be screens at Hyde Park and Trafalgar Square.

A special website has been set up for people wanting to know where to watch the service in central London.

Royal wedding: Prince William to marry Kate Middleton

Prince William is to marry long-term girlfriend Kate Middleton next year, Clarence House has announced.

William, second in line to the throne, will marry in London next spring or summer and live in north Wales, where he is serving with the RAF.

“We are both very, very happy,” the prince said. He had proposed on holiday in Kenya in October, giving his fiancee his mother’s engagement ring.

Miss Middleton said joining the Royal Family was a “daunting prospect”.

“Hopefully I’ll take it in my stride,” she added.

The couple, both 28, met at St Andrews University, Fife.

William said using Diana’s ring was “my way of making sure my mother didn’t miss out on today and the excitement”.

Prince Charles said he was “thrilled, obviously” about the engagement, joking: “They’ve been practising long enough.”

Kate Middleton’s parents Michael and Carole said they were “absolutely delighted” and “thrilled” by the news.

Her father said: “We have got to know William really well, we all think he is wonderful and we are extremely fond of him.

“They make a lovely couple, are great fun to be with and we’ve had a lot of laughs together. We wish them every happiness for the future.”

The royal engagement was announced in a brief statement released by Clarence House.

It said: “The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton.

“The wedding will take place in the spring or summer of 2011, in London. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course.

Analysis

Peter Hunt Royal Correspondent

We have become slightly cynical, perhaps, slightly sceptical. We all lived through the fairytale royal weddings of the 1980s and we know where they ended up.

But I know many people who are actively thinking about where they will place their picnic tables and chair once they have a date. These are occasions that people do delight in, in this country.

I don’t think William of all people wants to do a rerun of his parents’ ill-fated marriage and for that reason I think the wedding is unlikely to be in St Paul’s Cathedral.

The Guards Chapel, which was the setting for the 10th anniversary memorial service for his late mother, I suspect, may be too small, given that we are talking about the marriage of a future king.

That’s why inevitably, I suspect, the wedding will be at Westminster Abbey where, of course, his grandmother the Queen married in 1947.

“Prince William has informed the Queen and other close members of his family.

“Prince William has also sought the permission of Miss Middleton’s father.”

The Queen said she was “absolutely delighted” for both Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Prime Minister David Cameron said the engagement marked “a great day for our country” and wished the couple a long and happy life together.

He said he had received the news in a call from Buckingham Palace during a cabinet meeting, and it was greeted with “a great cheer” and “banging of the table” from fellow ministers.

He had slept overnight on the Mall ahead of Diana and Charles’ wedding, he added.

Leader of the Labour party Ed Miliband said “the whole country will be wishing them every happiness”.

Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond said William and Kate’s romance was “a match made in St Andrews” and everyone in Scotland would join him in wishing them well.

Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones offered his congratulations, saying: “I’m very pleased to hear that they plan to begin their married life in north Wales.”

The Countess of Wessex said the royal family was “absolutely thrilled and we all wish them all the luck and love in the world”.

James Whittaker, who has reported on the Royal Family since the 1960s, said life as a princess will be “very very demanding”.

Dickie Arbiter, the Queen’s former press secretary, told the BBC: “She’ll become a service wife.

 

David Cameron said Prince William was ”extremely excited”

“He’ll have to do his statutory royal duty, his royal bit, but he will be very much a working helicopter pilot with RAF search and rescue for the next three years, and Kate will have to get used to living in North Wales, although I think she’s pretty much used to it at the moment.”

Meanwhile royal commentator Margaret Holder said she thought the marriage would give Prince William the warm, cosy, family life he wanted.

“What he’s finding with the Middleton family is what he didn’t have as a child and I think that’s very good for him.

“I think this is going to be a very, very good and successful marriage. And I think this will take the monarchy through well into the 21st Century. I think Kate is very modern, she’s very relevant.”

Prince William and Kate Middleton both started out on the same history of art course at St Andrews in 2001, although William later switched to geography. For several years, they shared accommodation with friends.

Miss Middleton, who is six months older than William, was credited with persuading the prince to stay on as he struggled to adjust to university life during his first year.

 

Prince Charles told reporters he was ”thrilled” about news of the royal wedding

They graduated in the same ceremony from St Andrews in 2005 and their families joined them for a celebratory lunch.

The couple’s relationship was exposed in 2005 when they were photographed together on the Swiss ski slopes of Klosters.

They split briefly in 2007, but more recently Miss Middleton – who has no royal or aristocratic family connections – has been to several official events, heightening speculation of an engagement.

Miss Middleton is the eldest child of businessman Michael Middleton and former air hostess Carol.

She was raised in a modern five-bedroom detached house in the Berkshire village of Bucklebury and her family, who are self-made millionaires, run a mail order toy and party goods company.

The couple will marry in the year which would have marked the 30th anniversary of Prince William’s parents’ wedding.

The first interview with the couple will be aired on BBC News at 1900GMT. William and Kate – A Royal Engagement will be broadcast on BBC Two on Tuesday night at 1930 GMT.

Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales, KG, FRS (born 21 June 1982), is the elder son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales, and grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He is second in the line of succession, behind his father, to the thrones of 16 independent states, although he is resident in, and most directly involved with, the United Kingdom, the oldest of these realms.

Following his education at numerous schools around the United Kingdom, obtaining a degree from the University of St Andrews, and spending parts of a gap year in Chile, Belize, and countries in Africa, William enrolled in the military. He was commissioned as a lieutenant in the Blues and Royals regiment of the Household Cavalry – serving with his brother Prince Harry and,[2] two years later, earned his wings by completing pilot training at Royal Air Force College Cranwell.[3] In 2009, the Prince transferred to the Royal Air Force, was promoted to flight lieutenant and underwent helicopter flying training with the aim of becoming a full time pilot with the Search and Rescue Force.[4][5] As of Autumn 2010, he has completed his generic and special to type helicopter training and is now at RAF Valley on No. 22 Squadron performing co-pilot duties on the Sea King search and rescue helicopter. On 16 November 2010, Clarence House, his home near Buckingham Palace, announced that in 2011 he would marry long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton.

Catherine Elizabeth “Kate” Middleton (born 9 January 1982) is the fiancée of Prince William of Wales. Since their relationship began, Middleton has received widespread media attention and there has been constant speculation that they would eventually marry. On 16 November 2010, the office of the Prince of Wales, at Clarence House, announced to the media that Middleton and Prince William intend to marry in 2011.

Middleton grew up in Berkshire and after attending Marlborough College, went to the University of St Andrews. She met Prince William, also studying there, in 2001. They soon started a relationship, media attention quickly followed, and in 2005 her lawyer complained of harassment. In April 2007, the press reported that William and Middleton had split up. They continued to be friends, and later in 2007 they reunited. Since then, Middleton has attended many high-profile royal events. She has been admired for her fashion sense and has been placed on numerous “best dressed” lists.

On bended knee: Roberto Martinez proposed to Ali Fedotowsky on tonight's season finale of The Bachelorette's
6:36 AM on 3rd August 2010

She endured heartache and humiliation during a drama-filled season, but it was a happy ending for Ali Fedotowsky on tonight’s finale of The Bachelorette.

The 25-year-old became engaged to insurance agent Roberto Martinez, 26, against a romantic Tahitian backdrop after choosing him over landscaper Chris Lambton, 33.

While dropping to one knee, Roberto said: ‘I want to make you smile. I want to make sure you wake up every morning for the rest of your life knowing that you’re so, so loved.

‘Share your life with me. Be my wife. Will you marry me?’

Quashing wide-spread rumours she ended the show alone, an emotional Ali immediately replied: ‘Yes!’

Before he popped the question, she admitted: ‘I am in love with Roberto. The love I have for him is so strong, I couldn’t possibly be wrong.

‘I don’t know what I did in this life to deserve his love.’

He slipped a dazzling Neil Lane diamond ring onto her finger and swept her up in a huge embrace.

But the former Facebook employee, who started her search for love with 25 suitors, did initially agonise over her final pick.

‘They’re both great guys,’ she said at the start of the show. ‘But I need to pick who’s right for me.’

Her final date with Roberto helped to make her decision crystal clear.

The pair enjoyed a day of jet-skiing, swimming among a school of stingrays and picnic on a private beach.

They shared intense kisses in the rain, with Ali calling him one of the ‘sexiest men’ she’s ever met.

‘My heart is exploding,’ she said. ‘Everything I came here to find, I found in Roberto.’

‘I love Roberto,’ Ali confessed to the camera, revealing she didn’t want to say goodbye at the end of their date.

The next morning, Ali called off a planned island adventure with Chris by breaking the news that she was ‘in love with somebody else.’

She said she didn’t want to put him through the motions of the final date and rose ceremony when her mind was already made up.

‘I have to let you go here and not wait till tomorrow. This wasn’t an easy decision,’ she told Chris. ‘I just didn’t want to put you through tomorrow because I knew it was going to be so hard.’

A visibly heartbroken Lambton, who had earlier received her father’s blessing to propose, took the rejection in his stride.

‘Thank you for being honest,’ he told her. ‘Good luck tomorrow. Go find out tomorrow if he loves you.’

A true gentleman, Chris told the camera: ‘As much as this situation hurts, I want to see Ali happy.’

Moments later, Lambton said he saw a rainbow forming in the sky and took it as a sign from his late mother.

‘That’s my mom telling me it’s going to be OK,’ he said.

He hasn’t given up his search for his perfect girl, saying: ‘I just have to learn from it and move on. 

‘I still want that one person who is just everything to me. You can’t be complete unless you have that one person.’

‘I just have to keep looking.’ 

Ali’s quest for love first began on last season of The Bachelor, when she chose her career over Jake Pavelka.

She was then chosen to return as The Bachelorette, with 25 eligible bachelors vying  for her affection.

But this season she was left blind-sided when favourite Frank Neuschaefer, whom she picked to be in the final three, quit after reconciling with his ex-girlfriend in Chicago.

Earlier in the season wrestler Justin Rego, known as Rated R, was ultimately kicked off the show after Ali discovered that he had two girlfriends.

BUTCH PATRICK aka Eddie Munster has found love at last – at a vampire convention!

Child star Butch  – who played Lily and Herman’s pointy-eared son on the classic ’60s sitcom The Munsters – plans to marry a former NFL cheerleader who’s been a fan of his since 1964.

The 57-year-old actor met Donna McCall, 55, at Pennsylvania’s DraculaCon II in May – and it was love at first bite!

“As a little girl, Donna wrote fan letters to Butch when The Munsters aired in prime time,” an insider told The ENQUIRER.

“They met at the vampire show in May, immediately started dating and fell in love.”

Donna, a retired pharmacist who was a Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader from 1976 to 1979, told The ENQUIRER:  “My first crush was Butch Patrick. I met him for the first time, but I feel like I’ve known him FOREVER . . .”

Eddie’s getting married!

This has got to be one of the most unabashedly romantic stories I have ever heard. It’s got the perfect amount of cheese, sap and sincerity to make your little heart swell and burst.

Or if you’re a dude writing for Manolith, it’s so freakin’ awesome that Eddie Munster is getting hitched to a former Phildelphia Eagles cheerleader! Not bad for a young werewolf…which is what Eddie was–though I always thought he was a Vampire-Werewolf mixed-breed.

Stereotypes aside, Donna McCall was a huge fan of the hit TV show “The Munsters” back in the 60s, and as a fan of the show, she naturally wrote fan letters to her childhood crush, Butch Patrick, who played Eddie.

I have always loved Butch Patrick for his willingness to embrace this chapter of his life, and his willingness to smile when d-bags like myself call him Eddie Munster in public. Regardless, Butch carried on a correspondence with McCall in 1964, during the show’s first season.

After the show ended, life happened, but a few years ago McCall reached out to Patrick once again, this time via email. After staying in touch for quite some time, the two agreed to meet at this year’s DraculaCon II. After having known one another for years, they finally met, a whirlwind romance began, and not long after, Butch popped the question. Donna said yes, of course. These two crazy kids have set up home together in West Chester, PA.

8 + 2 +1+9+5+3 = 28 = his life lesson = what he is here to learn = Unabashedly.

August 2nd

8 + 2 +2+0+0+9 = 21 = his personal year (from August 2nd, 2009 to August 1st, 2010)

21 year + 7 (July) = 28 = his personal month (from July 2nd, 2010 to August 1st, 2010) = Unabashedly.

When his number (28 (8 + 2 +1+9+5+3 = 28)) comes up, that’s when he gets to live/experience what he is here to live/experience.  So this is HIS month!!!
