According to an article in the Guardian News, “prenups still seem a bit too un-British.”  There is apparently, “no evidence that a British royal has ever signed a prenup before.”  A prenuptial agreement might make sense for Kate Middleton, daughter of business millionaires, and Prince William of Wales, who will be the first King of England since William III, who reigned until 1702. (Even if the royal family, however, has agreed to cut household spending by 14% in 2012.)

A prenuptial agreement would keep royal business private, because of written privacy and confidentiality clauses.  Prenup lawyers sometimes recommend agreements between couples whose families have a history of divorce.  So it might be a good idea for Will and Kate, even though she is just a “commoner.”
