Hailing from a “commoner” background, it must be a complete mind-trip to realize you may be the Queen of England one day. Well, Kate Middleton just “got the fairytale.” Prince William finally proposed–with his late mom’s ginormous sapphire engagement ring no less–on a recent holiday the pair took to Kenya. The prince revealed that he carried around the engagement ring in Kenya in a rucksack for three weeks before he popped the question. Hey, even a prince gets nervous! Likely the wedding of the decade, the royal nuptials are set to go off sometime next year. Here the future queen dons a pair of sleek and stylish rectangle-framed shades–just oozing the refreshing, young attitude that she’ll bring to the royal family. We repeat: mind-trip.   –rpuccia
