William and Kate Count Down to the Royal Wedding

Making one of their last appearances before becoming husband and wife, Prince William and Kate Middleton met with a group of young athletes Monday in northwest England.

Mother Sarah Fawcett was at the event with her three children, and got to meet the Royal couple.

“I had only just got over the shock of meeting William and the next thing I was meeting Kate," Fawcett told People. "She has good eye to eye contact, and the smile on her face is as if she had come just to see me."

Kate does have a smile that seems to be getting wider the closer we get to the wedding. She has a lot to look forward to in just a little over two weeks!

The couple was presented a heart-shaped “courting cake” at the event, which is a pastry made out of shortbread and raspberry jam. And now I’m drooling.

And as the last minute plans come to a close, a list of guests has recently leaked, and it includes exes of both Kate and William. Also in attendance will be Harry’s on-again-off-again girlfriend Chelsy Davy. Talk about royal drama!

But the Prince is leaving all of that behind him. He says of Kate:

“I know that I am very fortunate. I have the support of my family and friends, I do a job I enjoy…and I have Catherine.”

Oh, and don’t forget, you’re stinking rich.
