TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2011 /CNW/ - It was a fairytale wedding for a
powerhouse couple. Prince William and Catherine Middleton gave the
monarchy new blood and relevance. To everyone else around the world,
they gave a love story to remember.
Part of the frenzied excitement over the engagement and marriage of Will
and Kate stemmed from the sense that the couple's love match was real,
not staged like many royal pairings of the past. This union of the son
of beloved Princess Diana to a commoner suggested the royal family was
evolving with the times. From their wedding to their cross-country
Canadian tour, they captured the hearts of a nation.
Maclean's editor-in-chief Mark Stevenson said the couple was a natural
choice for 2011 Newsmakers of the Year. "They were never very far from
the headlines this year," he said. "And at every stop on their Canadian
tour, the crowds were captivated by a very modern royal couple."
Maclean's 7th annual Newsmakers issue is 120 pages, and is on newsstands for an extended period starting
Thursday, Dec. 1. The issue looks at all the winners, losers, heroes,
heartbreakers, comebacks and setbacks of 2011.
