Every little girl dreams of someday being a princess and marrying her one true prince, who is hopefully handsome and romantic.
For Kate Middleton, this dream will become reality on April 29, 2011. Prince William met Kate at The University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and after eight long years of dating, he finally proposed in Kenya this past October.
The princess-to-be was born January 9, 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, Berkshire to parents Michael and Carole Middleton. She has two siblings: a sister, Pippa, and a brother, James. Kate is a commoner, as her father was a flight dispatcher and airline officer and her mother was a flight attendant. Eventually, they started their own company- Party Pieces, a mail-order party planning company.
She was raised in Berkshire and attended Marlborough College- a co-educational public school in Wiltshire. She then went to university, where she met Prince William, and graduated with honors in History of Art. The prince and future princess both attended The University of St. Andrews in Scotland. They then dated on and off for eight years.
As for the honeymoon, noone knows where this will be yet. Rumors about a week-long tour of Canda and the Scilly Isles are floating around. Be on the lookout Canadians and Northeners! According to The Daily Mail, "The couple have reportedly drawn up a shortlist of British honeymoon destinations-- because Palace officials don't want them going on an expensive foreign break while Britons see their living standards squeezed."
