• Take a tour of the future princess's hometown

    2011-01-13

    Those who have become enthralled with the love story between Prince William of Wales and his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton, have a new travel option coming their way. While we have watched William grow up and know plenty about his background, the future princess is a commoner that has the world wondering where she came from.

    Tending to the needs of curious parties, a tour operator in England will begin taking customers around Middleton's hometown of Bucklebury, located west of London.

    "There seems to be more interest in the States than in [England]," Adrian Morton, owner of a local tour company, told The Associated Press. "You can see the places where she went to school and where she was christened. And locals are interested, too."

    Bucklebury is a small, affluent town home to approximately 2,000 people. Morton has not yet received criticism for planning on bringing tour buses throughout the quaint area, but he suspects that restaurants and other local businesses will enjoy the influx of visitors.

    Middleton met the heir to the throne of England when they were both studying at the University of St. Andrews. They have been a couple for nearly nine years.
