Like a pair of fine steeds, two humans of noble lineage and handsome hindquarters have come together for mating and merriment. Prince William is engaged to Kate Middleton! The wedding is expected to be even bigger than Charles and Diana's.

Wills and Kate, both 28, have dated on and off for eight years. The wedding is expected to occur in a few months; it will likely be an even bigger, fancier affair than the last royal wedding. (Good thing that kind of public scrutiny turned out to be so much fun for the participants?) No word whether there will be live Facebook updates from the Queen.
