Prince William and Kate Middleton Engaged

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Prince William has popped the question to longtime partner and university flat-mate Kate Middleton. Miss Middleton, of Berkshire is not royal or aristocratic, and the engagement is a signal of changing times, even in the stuffy upper-echelon of U.K. royal life. As the tabloids prepare for the next several months of wedding coverage, questions abound: how will this engagement be different? 

We're joined by the BBC's Rob Watson for more on the story.

Just thinking back to yesterday when John H was talking about the "Britishers" reactions to Prince William's engagement. First, no one - except ignorant yanks (which John is obviously not) - uses the term "Britisher" anymore. So what up with that? Then John goes on to refer to the royal family as a "nasty crew". Since when was this show an editorial platform for him to spew this kind of invective?! I think he owes the queen an apology! As an ex-Brit myself, I happen to think the royal family is an embarrassment, but I don't want to hear my daily news presenters jump into the mudslinging. Leave that to your guests!

The comments regarding the virginity, or lack thereof, of Kate Middleton were extremely offensive to me as a woman. I was shocked to hear the comments regarding this topic--what century are you in, and what tabloid do you work for????. Celeste especially--shame on you! In general: While your program is informative, you as hosts exhibit an arrogance that is not appealing to the audience. Stop being so "cute", and full of yourselves.
