The newly engaged couple: William and Kate

It's official. Prince William and Kate Middleton have finally decided to tie the knot.

The couple who have been together for nine years have decided on a spring/summer wedding, 2011 – 30 years after the ill-fated marriage of the Prince’s parents.

It has been reported that William proposed to Kate in late October on a private holiday in Kenya.

So the next question remains, what does one give as an engagement present to the second in line to the throne and his future queen?

The Board of Deputies of British Jews is currently discussing that very issue. Atalia Cadranel, director of PR and communications said: “I have been in meetings today to discuss the issue of what to get the couple. We are trying to think of the perfect gift.

“In the meantime we will be sending them greetings and the heartiest congratulations.”
