Will and Kate Get Engaged, PR Companies Think You Should Too

Travel News — By Candice Walsh on December 14, 2010 at 6:00 am

Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their royal engagement earlier this month, after 9 years of being together. The proposal occurred during a private trip to Kenya.

People all over the world were tickled pink about the engagement, while other critics deemed the whole thing to be a lovely “diversion” from the current economic problems going on in England.

Of course, then the PR companies stepped in to make the most of the occasion by publicizing their clients in the travel industry. We saw the same phenomenon happen with the movie release of Eat, Pray, Love, but this one is just amusing.

Here are a few delightful snippets, some with heavy encouragement to get engaged yourself. Significant other required.

“Following the exciting announcement of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s engagement, Kuoni has selected a range of romantic Kenya holidays that provide the perfect setting to propose to your loved-one.”

You’ll need an ID for this one.

Ten Manchester Street is offering all engaged couples called William and Kate a complimentary afternoon tea with chilled bottle of champagne.”

Finally, my personal favorite:

“Not sure if you are planning any Kenya features following William and Kate’s engagement but if you are, please find below car rental fact box lead rates from Holiday Autos.

Will do!
