In news that will no doubt delight American royal-watchers (and New York paparazzi), princess-to-be Kate Middleton, Prince William’s on-and-on girlfriend for the past eight years, will move to New York in January to train as a fashion photographer and stylist, according to the UK’s Daily Star. She reportedly made the decision after William told her that they could not marry until 2012 when he finishes his work as a helicopter pilot for the Royal Air Force and turns 30.
Waity-Katie, as she is called in the British tabloids, is said to be fine with postponing the wedding yet again and is excited at the opportunity to establish her own career (apart from being a future princess and queen, of course). While in New York, she will train with photographer Nikolai von Bismark, a good friend of both Prince William and Prince Harry.
“She feels this is her last chance to carve out some sort of identity for herself before she is swallowed up by the Royal Family… Kate knows her choices will be very narrow once she is formally engaged, so she wants to make the most of her time now,” disclosed a family friend. (Daily Star)
