I'm inclined to agree: I'm not comfortable with the 'atmosphere' that's emanating from the headlines and the few photos I've looked at - I won't read the articles...

I think William and Harry are having a blast and trying to squeeze in as much of the area as they possibly can and most likely planned ahead of time by the bride and the groom. Somehow the word "sedate" and Guy Pelly do not seem to go together in my book.

The park was completely shut to the public, unexpectedly when Henry and William arrived with the wedding party.
I understand doing that in the UK, but I see no reason to do it in the USA. A lot of people are tweeting reporters with angry comments.

Graceland has been open in the past for Special Events in the evenings. It was only a matter of time until the right daytime group was accommodated with exclusive access. Trust me, Graceland will benefit from this for years to come.
See Unique Elvis-Themed Parties - Memphis, Tennessee for group booking info.

I have been to Graceland. You just can't buy a ticket and walk right in. It is on a ticketed entrance system with a small group being let in a set time just like they do at BP. They would just have to set aside a block of time for the royal group. Closed to the public for 2hrs max. The house isn't that big.

You've got to be kidding...Pelly LOVES the press!
He's reveling in this. And his bride must have known what to expect, so she must have no problem with it.

So happy Prince William, Prince Harry and the wedding group had a good time on their tour of Graceland.

Those pictures look like its the rehearsal dinner. Since they are in suits and stuff. Plus the rehearsal dinner is usually the night before after they do a rehearsal at the venue.

It should be interesting to see what the guys wear. In America, the groom and his groomsmen usually wear matching tuxes or suits. Not the morning suit that Brits wear. Does anybody know what time the wedding starts?

I thought it was the reception that was themed not the wedding.

Apparently the reception wasn't fancy dress based on the the Telegraph story which the band leader says the William and Harry were in their morning suits.

That dude on twitter was posting pictures of William on the Tarmac getting on the plane in Memphis then on the plane and then in airport in Dallas. That is pretty over top if he was a local Memphis news guy.

Interesting that Sgt Probert was with William in Memphis instead of in England with Kate and George. She didn't go on the Aus NZ tour so she probably has to fill in because the tour RPOs are probably due some vacation after working 3 weeks straight.

Prince Harry 'twerks' as Prince William sings in 'crazy night' at Guy Pelly's wedding - Telegraph
Perhaps this is how it is done locally.

In a shocking development, the DM is complaining about the security bill

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...y-princes.html

I don't see how the get the 50k total. The RPOs would have been with William and Harry if they were in KP instead of Memphis. It just the airfare and lodgings and supposedly W&H stayed at a private residence. I don't understand why the York girls still have RPOs all the time.

It is not like politicians who have police protection don't ever leave the country. They do it all the time.

If I'm not mistaken, the York princess' security is paid for privately by their father.

This is significant: plans to recreate historic Order of the Bath service image showing Queen in full regalia like her father now cancelled

Rebecca English ‏@RE_DailyMail 8m
Queen due to be photographed making an offering during the ceremony but last night aides admitted she couldn't manage it in heavy regalia...

Prince Charles will now step in to make the presentation of gold and silver coins....

Rebecca English ‏@RE_DailyMail 3m
The Queen still there in full regalia but it's a rare BP acknowledgement that at 88 she is finding her role occasionally more challenging.
