Prince Charles reacted with predictable pride to the upcoming wedding of son Prince William to Kate Middleton, saying he was "thrilled."

Then he slipped in a wry quip: "They've been practicing for long enough."

In his quick BBC interview, Charles was alluding to the fact that William and Middleton, both 28, have been dating for eight years.
