Britain's Royal Family Announces Engagement of Prince William

Hosted by

Kate Middleton today wore the same sapphire and diamond ring that Prince Charles gave to the late Princess Diana, only this time it came from Charles and Diana's son. Middleton's been called "Waity Katy" by British royal-watchers during her long romance with Prince William, the heir to the British throne. Now they're officially engaged, even as William's friends make cracks about the common origins of the bride-to-be. Sarah Lyall reports from London for the New York Times.
