Royal dating tips

At the end of a lengthy engagement will be a fairytale wedding day for William and Kate. What tips can we mere mortals take from their courtship?

Don't rush into anything:
William and Kate have been dating since 2003 and had a brief split in 2007 before reuniting shortly afterwards. They’ve had plenty of time to make sure they’re onto a winner.

Be yourself:
Kate has taken some stick in the press over her background; her ancestors were working-class miners, her mother was an air hostess and now her parents run a party planning business. Kate has never tried to be anything she’s not and still bagged herself the UK’s most eligible bachelor.

Make some big gestures:
In 2008 William landed an air force helicopter on Kate’s front lawn. The Defence Ministry claimed it was part of the prince’s pilot training, but we think he was just trying to impress his beau.
