A nation’s hopes and dreams were dashed this weekend: in a real shocker, Prince William and Kate Middleton announced they were calling it quits. Let’s get right to the media hysteria:

  • I bet Woolworth’s feels stupid after making all those Wills and Kate wedding souvenirs.(Mirror)
  • You knew those photos in the nightclub would come back to haunt him: did the prince’s playboy ways come between him and Kate?(Evening Standard)
