Apparently, Kate deeply regrets not being able to share the news of her engagement with the prince with her grandpa. The royal family expert, Katie Nicholl also wrote about it in her book Kate: Our Future Queen. “She knew that he would have been delighted for her,” the author says. William accompanied Kate to her grandfather’s funeral, a sad beginning to their fresh engagement.
In the end, the couple decided to hold off on their announcement for two more weeks, although their close ones already knew of their plans to wed. The queen was also aware of the situation seeing as, according to law, she has to give her approval for the wedding. The rest is history.
