Prince William and Kate Middleton were taking up the majority of the headlines this past week with the announcement of their engagement. Everyone's been gossiping about the royal union, from the future queen-in-waiting's style to the gorgeous ring. But we just can't get enough of these two. What can I say, I'm a sucker for fairy tales.
- The moment that the engagement was announced, British product companies started churning out the Will and Kate memorabilia. Gotta milk it for all it's worth, I suppose? Between the tourism and merchandising, the country is expecting a £620 million boost in their economy. Sadly the cute couple has their faces plastered on some pretty fugly collectors' items. Here are 10 of the worst. -- The Frisky
- Nowadays, there's less of a shock factor when a guy bends down on one knee and opens a box of bling. Picking out your own engagement ring is becoming more and more popular. So do you think Kate Middleton would've wanted to pick out her own, or do you think she's satisfied with her MIL's 18-karat blue sapphire? -- Lemondrop
- After eight years together, you can imagine these two have been through quite a bit. And through it all, Kate remained patient. Proof that good things come to those who wait. -- Betty Confidential
