Art will keep us together

Will + Kate

Warm congratulations are in order for Prince William and Kate Middleton, who announced their engagement this week. Perhaps showing that art museums really are a great place to pick up a date, the happy couple met in 2001 at St Andrews University in Scotland, where both started studying art history—though Will soon switched to geography. But he’s clearly kept up an interest in the arts—maybe thanks to Kate’s continued influence—and joked during the opening of the Whitechapel’s new expansion last year that he had a secret to admit. “I am actually…Banksy,” the Prince said and added after a pause: “Any autographs I will do later.”
