There's never been a shortage of speculation on whether Prince William will ever get married to longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton. Now the latest gossip to emerge is that the 28-year-old Prince William will wed Middleton, also 28, in the summer of 2011.
According to the UK's Daily Mail, a senior source at the Westminster Abbey has dished that the pair will get married there during the second week of August next year. "A date has been earmarked for a royal wedding next year," the source said.
Others speculate the wedding could occur on Aug. 31, which would mark the 14th anniversary of the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
The timing seems about right if Prince William is sticking to his word that he'd be ready to finally take the plunge when he turned "28 or even 30."
Of course, there has been no official announcement that the couple is even engaged in the first place. People reports that a spokesperson for William's official residence, Clarence House, called that wedding date talk "wide off the mark."
But a friend close to the couple told the Daily Mail if the August 2011 rumors were true, the timing "would be perfect." "It's pretty much impossible for them to marry in 2012 due to the Jubilee and the London Olympics, which means that unless they take the plunge next year Kate would have to wait until 2013 to walk down the aisle," the source added. "She has been very patient so far, but I think that is asking rather too much....even for her."
