Biggest Headline of 2010: Prince William and Kate Middleton's Engagement

We're looking back at the biggest headlines of 2010, and we'll be revealing more throughout the month of December. Here's one of the stories that created the most buzz over the past 12 months and don't miss the rest of our Best of 2010 coverage across the network!

Prince William and Kate Middleton revealed their engagement on Nov. 16, and set a date of April 29, 2011. We celebrated their happy news with lots of pictures, quotes, and fun facts.

At the end of October, William and Kate attended a friend's wedding, and less than one month later announced their own plans to marry. William gave Kate his late mother's engagement ring, which they showed to the world at their presscall. Kate wore a beautiful blue Issa dress for the announcement, and it then sold out in 24 hours. The happy couple spoke about the ring and proposal, and gave lots of romantic, memorable quotes about their relationship.

Their families were thrilled about the news, with the Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince Harry and the Middletons all reacting positively. We took a look back at their courtship in pictures, and also got to know Kate better with fun facts about our future Queen.
