46565, NORTHLEACH, GLOUCESTERSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM - Tuesday November 16 2010. FILE PICTURE DATED Saturday October 23 2010.  Prince William and Kate Middleton are engaged and will marry in 2011, Clarence House announced today. The announcement came after speculation reached fever pitch following a visit by Kate's parents to the Queen's Scottish estate last month. The invitation was seen as a clear sign that the couple were poised to announce they were marrying. They have been together for eight years and have recently been spending much of their time in north Wales where William is a search and rescue pilot. Their wedding, scheduled for 2011, will be the biggest royal event since the wedding of William's mother and father.

The location of the April wedding is said to be London’s Westminster Abbey, the venue for the 1947 wedding of the then Princess Elizabeth.

Many were expecting a summer wedding, but Prince William is said to have wanted a short engagement and himself and Kate both wished for a Spring wedding.

April 29 will be declared a national holiday, with thousands of guests expected to attend the wedding and millions more watching on TV and online.

“They wanted a Friday. They wanted a spring wedding and they wanted to give the country a day off,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told Good Morning America.
