There are eight main sections where the 1,900 guests will be seated for the wedding ceremony. The British Royal Family and the Middletons will have prime viewing seats, naturally, in the South and North Lanterns respectively. Sitting next to the Middletons on the left of the altar will be the Spencer family, including Princess Diana’s three siblings and their spouses. The forty-plus foreign royals will be sitting alongside the British Royal Family, with foreign dignitaries (such as Commonwealth Governor-Generals and Prime Ministers) will be seated behind them, in the South Transcept.

The North Transcept behind the Middletons will seat the bridal couple’s friends. The Stalls North and South will be filled by Faith representatives, members of the British government and more friends. The general congregation will fill the North and South Naves.

The selected guest list features a small portion of those who will be attending the ceremony. We already knew about the British Royal Family, and the Middletons and most of the foreign royals, but some we didn’t know were attending include: the former King and Queen of Bulgaria, the former King of Romania, Prince Seeiso of Lesotho and his wife, Princess Lalla Salma of Morocco and the Swazi King. The Crown Prince of Bahrain was listed as attending, but has today cancelled his attendance due to public outcry.

13 Governors-General of the Commonwealth will be attending, as will seven Prime Ministers. Other guests include various military officials linked to the groom and his brother, Harry; individuals associated with the groom’s patronages and charity work, David and Victoria Beckham, Sir Elton John, Joss Stone, Guy Ritchie and Mario Testino.

    I WAS LOOKING AT THE GUEST LIST AN WAS SURPRISED TO SEE THAT THERE WAS NOT MENTION OF ANYONE FROM THE MOUNTBATTEN FAMILY MENTIONED,

    LORD MOUNTBATTEN HAD TWO DAUGHTERS, LADY PATRICIA BRABOURNE, NOW COUNTESS MOUNTBATTEN AND LADY PAMELA HICKS. INDIA HICKS, LADY PAMELA’S DAUGHTER, WAS BRIDESMAID AT THE WEDDING OF CHARLES AND DIANA. I AM ALSO SURE THAT COUNTESS MOUNTBATTEN’S SON LORD BRABORNE IS GOD-FATHER TO PRINCE WILLIAM

    ANY FEED BACK.

    This is only a selected guest list – there are around 1900 people invited to the wedding, and only a one or two hundred on the list given by the Court. There are many people which are not on the list that will be there. We just have to wait until Friday and see.
