"Prince William has informed The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince William has also sought the permission of Miss Middleton's father."


The Queen said she was "absolutely delighted" for both Prince William and Kate Middleton.




Miss Middleton is the eldest child of businessman Michael Middleton and former air hostess Carol.


She was raised in a modern five-bedroom detached house in Berkshire and her family run a mail order toy and party goods company.





Congratulations on behalf of everyone at Great British Life.
