London: Prince William and his bride to
be Kate Middleton will start thinking about having kids soon
after their wedding, which is set to take place next year.

28-year-old Prince William, the second-in-line to the
British throne, is to marry his longtime companion Kate
Middleton in 2011, according to a statement yesterday.

"I think we`ll take it one step at a time. We`ll sort
of get over the marriage first and then maybe look at the
kids. But obviously we want a family so we`ll have to start
thinking about that," Prince William said in an interview with
ITV News.

Seated side by side in their first interview together
after the announcement, the couple said they are hugely
excited and looking forward to spending the rest of our lives
together.

Answering a question on her close-knit family, Kate,
28, said, "Yes. It`s very important to me. And I hope we will
be able to have a happy family ourselves. They`ve been great
over the years - helping me with difficult times. They are
very, very dear to me."
