Kate Middleton's Bucklebury Bunch: Royal wedding to be Berkshire village affair | Mail Online

quotes
When Prince William and Kate Middleton walk down the aisle at Westminster Abbey, they will be in the company of the world’s great and good.
But also sitting in the pews, in keeping with the couple’s desire for a ‘People’s Wedding’, will be a selection of characters from Miss Middleton’s home village in Berkshire. Kate and William have invited a friendly postman, a trusted shopkeeper and his wife, the landlord of the Bucklebury village pub and their butcher to share their special day.

The names of the locals on the Royal wedding guest list were leaked this week as villagers started to receive the gold-embossed invitations. Shopkeeper Chan Shingadia and his wife Hash – who has checked with Kate’s father, Michael, whether she can wear a sari to the wedding – said they were delighted to receive theirs. Mr Shingadia, who lives above their Peaches Stores shop, said: ‘We’re over the moon, absolutely thrilled. I have known Kate six years. She comes in regularly. She has brought William in on about three or four occasions. The very first time it was mind-blowing to have a Prince in my store. He likes Viennetta ice cream – he buys that a lot. I’ve got to know him better each time. What’s lovely about him is despite the fact that he meets a lot of people, he still remembers my daughter’s name."

I know the fruitcake bit had already previously been reported on, but they also add that William made a special request for a "Chocolate Biscuit" for the Buckingham reception.
