Queen 'delighted' at engagement of Prince William: palace
Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is "absolutely delighted" that her grandson Prince William and his girlfriend Kate Middleton are engaged, Buckingham Palace said Tuesday.
A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said: "Both the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are absolutely delighted for them both."
The couple got engaged during a holiday in Kenya last month and expect to marry in spring or summer 2011, said a spokesman for Clarence House, the residence of William, his younger brother Harry and their father Prince Charles.
