London, Aug 3 : While the whole world is waiting for Prince William to pop the question to girlfriend Kate Middleton, the lady in question has warned the royal that she "won't wait for him forever."
Kate was hoping for a summer wedding, however, there hasn't been much progress on the front ever since William returned from his Navy stint.
However, now, that the couple is set for a Caribbean holiday on Mustique, their pals have revealed that Kate is adamant to get her boyfriend decide upon a wedding date.
"William has promised Kate she won't have to wait forever. But each time she tries to nail him down on a date, something comes up and the moment slips away," The Daily Star quoted a family friend, as saying.
Her plans came to a halt last week when royal aides laid down a new round of appointments for the Prince with the SAS and military brass in Whitehall.
It has now emerged that the 26-year-old royal will be moving back into his old bachelor pad in Prince Charles' Clarence House, washing off any speculations of moving in with Kate anytime soon.
"Kate prepared herself to do things to William's timescale but she's only human and she isn't going to be happy waiting in the wings forever. He has to show some commitment or she might just not be there when he decides to do something," said the source.
While William had promised Kate, 26, a more publicly recognised role, she still wants him to publicly acknowledge their togetherness.
"It isn't about being a public figure - the thought of that horrifies Kate. She just wants the world to know William loves her and that their future is together," said the source.
