“We are very excited and delighted for them both. And, we are wishing them all of the happiness at this exciting time,” William said. “And, for me, personally, I hope this means he stays out of my fridge. He’s often been found scrounging off of my food over the last few years.”
William took a more serious tone when it came to his actual feelings about the upcoming royal wedding, “it’s a fantastic process to go through. The engagement and the build up to the wedding. They have a lot of happy times ahead of them. They are very caught up in the moment and I wish them all of the happiness and success in planning the wedding. I hope it goes very well.”
On Tuesday, Duchess Catherine shared her excitement during an event in London.
“William and I are absolutely thrilled,” the duchess said. “It’s such exciting news. It’s a really happy time for any couple, and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment.”
