Royal Prenup To Be Signed By Middleton?


A Royal Prenup could be signed by Kate Middleton before her wedding to Prince William on 29th April 2011, according to the Associated Press.
The couple have dated each other since their university years, but a number of divorce lawyers say the second-in-line to the throne would be "well advised" to seek a prenuptial agreement. Lawyer James Stewart, whose firm 'Manches' handled the multimillionaire divorce between Madonna and Guy Ritchie, said, "It's an absolute statistical no-brainer that a prenuptial agreement would be highly beneficial in this case". The British Royal family have a history of failed marriages, three of Queen Elizabeth Ii's four children have been divorced, while Prince William's uncle on his mother's side also has two ex-wives. The Prince's office has declined to comment on a prenuptial agreement but Stewart added, "In the 21st century, there is a real need for any couple in the public arena to enter into a properly drawn up prenup".
Prince William's father Prince Charles reportedly decided against a prenuptial agreement before marrying his second wife Camilla in 2005. Even if 29-year-old Kate agrees to sign a contract, it is unlikely to be made public. Lawyer Stewart adds, "Kate is joining a family known as The Firm, and every other employee of the royal household has a contract of employment which includes a fairly severe gagging clause.
