The Future Queen of England...

Kiwi blogger Blair Mulholland has brought an important point to the attention of local readers... To quote Blair, "Kate Middleton is HOTTTT!"

Those in the UK are probably well used to seeing photos like this (taken back in September, while the pair were holidaying in Ibiza) and reading about Middleton, but she is less recognised overseas. (And is it just me, or does she look a little like Ms Victoria "Posh" Beckham??)

Tipped by many Royal watchers as a future Queen of England (actually 'Queen consort' to be precise), there has been much media speculation recently that an engagement between Prince William of Wales and Kate Middleton was imminent.

British retailer Woolworths has apparently already commissioned Wills & Kate engagement memorabilia, despite any evidence of royal plans. Bookmakers William Hill have stopped taking bets on whether the pair will get engaged... although you can still have a wager on the exact date.

William Mountbatten-Windsor and Kate Middleton began dating in 2003, while they were students at St Andrews University in Scotland, and have been together ever since.

Earlier this month, Prince Williams asked the press to respect 25-year old Middleton's privacy and stop taking her photo, after she was mobbed by photographers outside her London home on her birthday.

Britain's main tabloid newspapers have now agreed to stop printing paparazzi photos of Kate Middleton.
