Like Diana, Kate is being hailed as the next “People’s Princess” and is already a favorite amongst paparazzi. Prince William proposed to his bride while vacationing in Kenya and presented Kate with his late mother’s engagement ring. Kate’s gushed over the proposal from Princess Di’s eldest son, telling the press, “He’s a true romantic and we had a wonderful holiday in Africa and it was out there in a very quiet lodge and it was very romantic and it was very personal time for both of us.”

Prince William and his bride said their “I ‘dos” on Friday as the world looked on. William in his military garb and Kate in a show-stopping Sarah Burton designed (Alexander McQueen designer) gown, the couple couldn’t look more royal if they tried! The bridal party included Prince Harry as his brother’s best man and Pippa Middleton as one of Kate’s bridesmaids.
