Prince William's engagement to Kate Middleton was made official today in a rather unusual way by royal's standards: Twitter.
The news appears to have been delivered first in a 132-character tweet from the royal home the Clarence House: "The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton - www.princeofwales.gov.uk"
It was only minutes later that the British Monarcy weighed in with a tweet: "The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are absolutely delighted at the news of Prince William and Catherine Middleton's engagement."
The engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton had long been rumored.
