(Newser) – Prince William “has to” marry longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton, a court-watching source tells the New York Post. “Been seeing her too long not to. It would be another embarrassment for the Palace,” the source says, adding that “the wedding will probably be next year after he finishes military service. Face it, London is very depressed. The Crown could use a royal wedding at this point.”

“Understand, he's not all that easy and affable as he comes off. He's a bit of an arrogant young man who expects people to bow and scrape,” the source adds of the prince—but his sweetie has her own downside: “Not smart. Hasn't picked up a book in her life. But very calculating. Her mother's been planning this her whole life.”
