Prince William: The time felt right to propose
Question of the Day
LONDON (AP) - Britain's Prince William says he had discussed marriage with future bride Kate Middleton for more than a year before he finally proposed on a holiday in Kenya last month.
The prince, speaking in a joint television interview as they announced their engagement Tuesday, said the couple had been discussing marriage for at least 12 months.
William says he had been planning to pop the question for a while. But he says "as every guy out there will know, it takes time a certain amount of motivation to get yourself going."
The prince says "it just felt really right out in Africa and was beautiful at the time."
William did not disclose precise details of how he proposed but said it showed his romantic side.

LONDON (AP) _ Prince William's fiancee Kate Middleton says his mother, the late Princess Diana, was an inspirational woman and she would have loved to meet her.
In a televised interview, Middleton said she was very nervous about meeting William's father Prince Charles and his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II. But she said they were both very friendly to her.
Middleton said Tuesday she was initially very shy about meeting William when they were both at college, but they became very close friends early on.
She says they went through good and bad times throughout the eight years they were together and came out stronger.
