Hear Kate Middleton Speak For The First Time At Engagement Press Conference!

by Chiara Atik · November 16, 2010

Are you just as obsessed with Prince William and Kate Middleton? Check out this video from their press conference earlier today. For most of us, this is the first time we've ever heard Kate Middleton's voice: she's been Prince William's girlfriend for 8 years, but this is her first time speaking in public. She sounds much posher than we expected...-

The newly engaged couple gave a press conference at St.James's Palace, during which Prince William explained why it took him so long to propose, and the significance of the engagement ring. (It was Diana's!)

Another thing to notice is that the reporters are all calling her "Catherine" as opposed to "Kate"; it's long been said that Middleton would prefer the name "Catherine" for official engagements.
