Britain's Prince William engaged

Prince William and Kate Middleton started dating in 2003.

A royal source has confirmed to CNN that Prince William and Kate Middleton have announced their engagement. They will marry in spring or summer 2011.

The prince and Middleton, both 28, have been dating since 2003. Rumors have been rife for years that they have been close to marriage.

Prince William is second in line, behind his father, Prince Charles, to the British throne. He is an officer in the Royal Air Force.

Middleton is the daughter of a former airline flight attendant and a former pilot who made a fortune selling party supplies.

The prince and Middleton met when they were both students at St. Andrew's University in Fife, Scotland. She has been trying to outmaneuver the paparazzi ever since.
