Hundreds of millions of people worldwide tuned in to watch the April 29, 2011, fairytale wedding of the future King of England to a commoner. A royal wedding frenzy was set off the previous November, when the engagement of Prince William to long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton was announced. The couple met as students at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and their eight year courtship, unusually long for a royal, earned Kate the nickname "Waity Katy" in the tabloids. The couple honeymooned in the Seychelles, and admirers around the world watched as they gave birth to the "royal baby," Geroge Alexander Louis, on July 22, 2013.
