I'm going down the Canongate tomorrow to see how the land lies...

There is another big event tomorrow (Friday) close by - the Re-opening of the National Museum of Scotland.

Early warning for wedding crowds...

From Lothian and Borders Police:
"There will be crowd control and crowd safety measures put in place, including barriers, and some limited traffic restrictions.."

The mother of England rugby star Mike Tindall has said her son is so in love that he wouldn't mind if his royal fiancée 'worked at a Tesco checkout'.
Proud Linda Tindall described Princess Anne's daughter Zara Phillips, who is 13th in line to the throne, as 'a lovely girl' and 'perfect' for her boy.
With just two days to go before the couple's long-awaited wedding, the down-to-earth Yorkshirewoman said of the Queen's grand-daughter: 'He has a lovely girl, Zara is perfect for Mike.

----------------

I hadn't realized that they have been dating for 7 years! Wow...can't wait until Saturday.

What I like about this are the quotes attributed to Mike's Parents:
'We have not met the Queen before but we've obviously met her parents. [Princess] Anne and Mark [Phillips, her ex-husband] were most welcoming and kind.
'We have met Princes William and Harry because they are fans of rugby. They sometimes come to parties that Mike's had, like his 30th birthday. They're very down to earth. But we haven't met any of the other Royal Family.
'We have always followed Mike's career and when he started to see Zara we started supporting her career too.
'In the closed season if he was going to support her in a three-day event, we would often go down to support her as well.
'We were at Aachen when she won the World Championships and have seen her lose and win the World Title.'
Mrs Tindall said that although the pair come from very different backgrounds, they share a stable upbringing which will bode well for their future.
The mother-of-two said: 'I think the stability and security has given Mike very strong family values, something I think we share with Zara's family.
'Mike's has now grown up into a well-balanced, thoughtful and caring young man. He has a lovely girl, Zara is perfect for Mike.'

Since Zara is in line to the throne then when she does assume the throne then mike will be a prince consort at the least. Right?

Zara is in line to the throne, but unless something happens to Charles, William (and any potential children), Harry, Andrew, Beatrice, Eugenie, Edward, James, Louise, her mother and Peter and Savannah she WILL NOT be Queen. All of those listed have to not be available in order for Zara to be Queen. But if that was the case, one would assume that within a reasonable period of time....Mike would be a Prince Consort (after he is given another title of course).

At the conclusion of her wedding, Zara will be Zara Tindall, MBE. Though she will probably continue to go by Phillips professionally.

And that's about it.

The floral arrangements look beautiful so far, and I like the red carpet, and it seems there are two special chairs in the front of the church, most likely for the Queen and the D of E.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. The only way Zara will ever be Queen is if a whole lot of people die ahead of her in line, which is beyond unlikely. Furthermore, she carries no title as the daughter of an untitled man, so Mike Tindall will have no title after they marry. As Zonk said, she'd be Zara Tindall, MBE, and that's it.

Why would you think Zara would be Queen one day anyway?

Please share with us the aftermath!
We have been told time and time again it will be a private event, but people will need to get inside the church somehow, right?
Even if just a quick glimpse of the bride and family!

As I type this it is 6.32 am Friday morning in London/Edinburgh so we have about another 12 - 14 hours to wait for the potential first photos of people arriving at that event to show up.

Is this because it was her Mother who was a Princess and her Father was not a Prince?

I know that Edward & Sophie have chosen 'Lady' for Louise, (as is custom for the daughter of an Earl or Count), but Louise is Legally a Princess still.

Why the difference? Do you know, can you help me with this?

At the request of their mother,the children of the Princess Royal do not hold any royal title, nor are they entitled to one by right of birth, as they are the grandchildren of a monarch in the female line.

Then let's hope that the kirk has a roof that doesn't leak....

Does anyone know where the guests from the Royal family stay? At Holyroodhouse? Do they have guest appartments there?

Under the 1917 LPs of George V only some people are automatically HRH Prince or Princess.

These are the children of the monarch - Charles, Andrew, Edward and Anne

Male line grandchildren of a monarch - William, Harry, Beatrice, Eugenie, Louise, James, Richard, Edward, Michael and Alexandra.

Eldest son of the Prince of Wales - none

As a result Anne's children weren't entitled to any title as a consequence of being her children. This was the same thing for the children of Princess Margaret and Princess Mary - George V's own daughter. However Princess Margaret's husband was created Earl Snowdon before the birth of Lord Linley so that Linley was born as the heir to a title and Princess Mary's children were born 'Honourable' as they were the children of the heir to an Earldom through their father.

Anne, and Mark refused a title for Mark at the time of their wedding and again when Peter was on the way. They also refused a title for the children when they were born. So they became Mr Peter Philips and Miss Zara Philips but having no title hasn't affected their position in the line of succession and they are both higher in the order than four people who were born HRH Prince/Prince - Richard, Edward, Michael and Alexandra.

The LPs were sexist in that sons could pass on the HRH but daughters couldn't.
