There were no press restrictions at the weddings of Lady Helen or the Earl of Ulster. The pics of these weddings that were printed in Hello were the same as those in many other publications. There was no "deal" on those occasions with any magazine.

Frankly, without the informal shots of Kate, Chelsy and Harry, I can't imagine more than a handful of people would really be interested in the Phillips. Let's be honest, inspite all the gushing on the bride, she isn't a ravishing beauty and neither can be said of the groom. Neither are spetacularly rich in their on right. Nor any great professional acclaim to warrant a second look. And if the story on Peter and Autumn having editorial approval is to be believed, they knew it too. As much as I think the photos of the guests are lovely, they were "pimped out" for the benefit of the P&A. If the couple couldn't afford a grand wedding, they should have had one.

I don't think that is fair to say. He is the Queen's grandson and with that I think many people would be interested in the wedding. I say would because its not going to get any press coverage. Instead we will hear about Britney Spears "the cyclone". I also don't think its right to say that they couldn't afford the wedding so they shouldn't have had a nice one. He is a royal, he may not have a title, but he is none the less. Because of this they should have as nice of a wedding as all of his cousins. For heavens sake he is also the oldest of her grandchildren

Oh yeah if they didn't sell the photos it would have been a wreck with all of the photographers trying to get the shot.

In the large group shot spread over the open of two pages why is Lady Louise not in it. The Lindley children and many others are in it. Zara's boyfriend, but not the Lady Louise.

I see her in one photos between her parents in the church

Who cares. People on this planet, including minor insignificant royals, have done far worse throughout history. They are not even on the Civil List anyway. So he's the grandson of the Queen... and the couple were paid for an exlcusive. Big deal. The press and certain people seem to be trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.

The whole thing - wedding and honeymoon - was hadled in a tacky "nouveau riche" manner - I suspect that we shall see pictures from the delivery room on the birth of the first baby ... for a fee, of course!

I find it intriguing by the push to portray a lot of the younger generation of royals as "down to earth". They don't do any official royal engagements (at least not the gruffy kind without a load of good press) and expect the paps to leave them alone at their leisure events. Yet, at every turn, they are happy to trade of their royal connection for relatively trivial gains. I mean there are tons of travel brochures with common folks standing about the site or near the resort logos. How many of these commoners would even be asked to consent releasing their photos from the visit? The hint-hint of Peter knowing someone at the resort is so desperate. Are the couple really so strapped from the cost of their wedding that they can't afford a honeymoon?

For some reason her parents did not want her photographed and therefore sent her straight home from the ceremony. I thought she was in one of the BBC videos but apparently not.

I don't understand this very company gives free holidays to many celebrities in exchange for photo rights - Zara Philips, Prince Micheal and Princess Micheal, Gary Player, Tiger Woods, Angelina Jolie - numerous South African local celebs. Not a single person blinked an eye when we saw the pics.

I think a lot of the bad press boiled down to the fact that they wanted a private wedding, so no media allowed, but then sold the wedding the wedding photos - well that and I think it had a lot to do with the photos of Harry, Chelsy and Kate. Most papers would of killed for them. I know the Peter is the Queens eldest grandson but there is just not that much public interest in him like there is in his sister or his cousins, most of the press coverage in the run up to the wedding was about Chelsy meeting the Queen for the fist time and would Kate and William be there. I guess that makes it easy for people to question if there had been no Harry, Chelsy or Kate would there have been any deal and it can make Peter look like he sold his family. Then allowing themselves to photographed on their honeymoon in exchange for a reduced rate makes it seem like the used the wedding to make some quick cash. The whole thing just seems a little tacky to me but I guess it was their wedding and their honeymoon so it is up to them what they want to do.

I thought she was at the reception cause in the article I think Autumn mentioned saying something like "do I look like a princess"? to Lady Louise at the reception unless I misunderstood what she meant by that.

The sub-headline is actually " 'Do I look like Cinderella?' Autumn asked little Lady Louise" (Hello! page 91). Nothing about looking like a princess.
ETA.. the context and quote appear on page 78: "Arriving at Frogmore for the wedding party, Autumn might almost have thought she was dreaming. "Do I look like Cinderella?" she asked Lady Louise, the little daughter of the Countess of Wessex."

Thank you Warren.

That will teach me not to rely on a story without an apparent link (post 140)

^Sorry princess came to my head lmao I guess I was reading too much about the royal families the day I posted it. I'm not sure if the context was trying to say she was talking to Louise at the reception or they just combined the quote with that part of the story.
