I wish everyone would stop talking about Will and Kate's wedding until there's an actual engagement. There's a long history of the press reporting upcoming "royal engagements" for couples who never got engaged. Or, in some cases, were never couples in the first place.

I actually heard from a so-called insider that Kate's not going to marry him anyway because she doesn't want to be a member of the royal family. She's very torn because she loves him, just not his family. Suppsedly in college she had told friends she didn't believe in the monarchy and wanted it abolished. That would make an interesting tabloid story if anyone could ever find proof of her feelings on the subject.
