Rumor Mill: Engagement hype ramps back up for Prince William and Kate Middleton
Are Prince William and longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton inching closer to an engagement?
That's the word from both Radar Online and the U.K.'s Daily Mail -- in other words, not the best of sources. But, still, it's a slowish Monday morning so we'll play with this for a bit. What exactly has these two bastions of public information so convinced that a royal engagement is imminent?
Radar Online claims that "recent developments" mean the couple will announce their intention to marry... sometime between now and February. "Recent developments" would apparently include the Daily Mail's report and the fact that "London betting parlors are getting in on the action." Whatever that means.
Kate and Wills recently attended a wedding together which is, of course, enough to get any royal watcher talking. But, the plot thickens -- Kate reportedly wore a dress custom-designed by designer Daniella Issa Helayel who -- DING DING DING -- also designs wedding dresses.
The Daily Mail also points out that Kate is having ensembles custom-designed to "to avoid the humiliation of turning up in the same dress as another guest." And we know that the only people on earth who take the trouble to avoid turning up in duplicate outfits are British royals and Bjork.
Kate's family recently spent time hunting at William's family estate in Scotland. Apparently bloodsport is a clear sign that Kate's parents and the royals were negotiating terms of a marriage.
