The big question, could a royal wedding take place in Britain in a not-too-distant future? CBS news correspondent Sheila MacVicar is live outside Buckingham Palace with more on that. Good morning Sheila!

Good morning Hanna! Well the gossip magazines are in overdrive, the tabloids2 are buzzing with seasonal3 speculation4 that Britain's Prince William is getting ready to tie the knot.

When is an invitation to dinner more than just a chance to sit down with the family? When it's the Queen who does the inviting5 and the dinner in question is Christmas Day with the royals. News that William's longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton will be joining the Christmas party has set off a fever of speculation.

"It's very much a media pressurizing, saying: Will they? Won’t they? There is no need, as along as she has prepared to wait for him, ,there is no need for him to commit to a marriage at this moment."

The couple met as students at a Scottish university. They've been together for five years. Unlike that other royal couple, younger brother Harry6 and his South African girlfriend frequently pictured rocking some royal love boat, William and Kate are discreet7 about their relationship. They may go to clubs together even family weddings, but they are rarely photographed together. She has just started a new job which includes making tea. He's still in officer training. And those obligations, said Majesty8 Editor Ingrid Seward, make it early wedding unlikely.

"Well, I think, it's quite possible they will get married, because they seem to be incredibly close. But I can't see them getting married soon, because William isn't settled in his life yet."

But after Prince Charles and his bride Camilla wed1 without a lot of advance notice, one retailer9 is taking no chances on losing out on what will be a lucrative10 souvenir market. In anticipation11 of engagement, Woolworth's has the china designed.

"Check that date Hanna, and it's a big question mark. But the growing popularity of the young royals and the endless fascination12 with the doings of Diana's children ensures that even if diamonds aren't in Kate Middleton's stocking in this Christmas, we'll be talking about them anyway. Hanna?

Hum, Sheila Macvicar from Buckingham Palace. Thank you.
