The Duke of Cambridge opened up on the emotions he felt in the weeks before he proposed to Kate.
In an interview released following the announcement of the engagement in November 2010, which recently resurfaced, Prince William revealed he thought for a long time whether to ask Mr Middleton for Kate’s hand before or after receiving a yearned “yes” from his daughter.
