Britain's most eligible bachelor will finally be tying the knot. Prince William will likely propose to his girlfriend of eight years, Kate Middleton, in February 2011, according to People Magazine.

"There won't be an announcement before Christmas because William has got to ask the Queen first," said longtime royal watcher Ingrid Seward. "And they will get married soon after."

The couple, both 28, met as students at the University of St. Andrews in 2001. They have been dating on and off since then and Middleton has appeared by William's side at various high-profile royal events. –ISHITA SINGH
