Kate Middleton will become the latest in a long line of commoners to marry into the royal family.

The former student lacks blue blood, is neither a lady nor a princess and does not have a double-barrelled name.

However, there is no requirement that members of the royal family pick a royal or aristocratic spouse.

In fact, there has been a distinct lack of princes or princesses marrying those high up the line.
One of the last was the Duke of Edinburgh, formerly Prince Philip of Greece and a descendant of Queen Victoria, who married the Queen, then Princess Elizabeth, in 1947.

However, the Countess of Wessex, like 28-year-old Miss Middleton, is also distinctly middle-class. The PR girl who once worked for Capital Radio was born Sophie Rhys-Jones and her father was an ex-car salesman and she was brought up near Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

LONDON, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 16:

Prince William and Kate Middleton pose for photographs in the State Apartments of St James Palace on November 16, 2010 in London, England.

After much speculation, Clarence House today announced the engagement of Prince William to Kate Middleton. The couple will get married in either the Spring or Summer of next year and continue to live in North Wales while Prince William works as an air sea rescue pilot for the RAF.

The couple became engaged during a recent holiday in Kenya having been together for eight years.
