Getting so gittty and excited for this wedding !!!!! And for my part I am excited to see Felipe and Letizia so it's a win,win for me..... (and Daniel and Victoria, and Max and WA, and Mathilde and Phillippe)

Edit- oh yes and Albert and Charlene, who honestly I forgot were even attending.....Do you think the BRF will send someone to their wedding? (Sophie and Edward perhaps)
its true. I complain about the DM, but I'm always posting it here
I was thinking maybe Kate and William could represent the family at C&A' wedding. Just to see Kate sporting a tiara :P (will they be wearing tiaras?)
Actually, Sophie is looking so beautiful lately, (if you haven't , go check her thread) I would be just as happy to see her there.

I believe in the past that the term was originally often used amongst Cockneys [native-Londoners 'traditionally born within the sound of Bow Bells' and historically a working-class area] to indicate 'a good party', the 'knees up' referring to dancing; there's an old English song much beloved of Cockeys called 'Knees up Mother Brown'.

I am afraid I am completely unable to help you with the full lyrics - all I have ever heard is ' Knees up Mother Brown, Knees up Mother Brown, Knees-up, Knees-up, Knees-up, Knees-up, Knees-up Mother Brown', sung whilst all dance around merrily, hopping about from foot to foot, and with the knees 'going up'.

Yes, Victoria Arbiter is generally regarded as a 'safe source': I posted this earlier on another thead [Catherine Middleton Family Wealth Thread]

Dickie Arbiter keeps in very close contact with the Palace still, and although this is obviously going to have to rank as 'unverified opinion', I can tell you from what I have learned in my job that the Palace Press Office sometimes use Dickie Arbiter to help spread background information on an 'unattributed basis' to enable certain information - probably more accurately described as 'mis-information!!!' - put into the public domain by the tabloid press and particularly the 'Red Tops' [a term used to indicate those tabloids such as the Sun and The News of The World - both of which have 'Red' Title lines, to be corrected.
[Arbiter senior being regarded as a 'safe pair of hands']

There is also the wide belief [again you will just have to treat this as unverified information] but again I was told this in my job, that the Palace likes to keep what I should call the 'papers of record' [Times, Telegraph etc] 'well-briefed' in order to help keep the balance - as a general rule, the Papers of Record are regarded as not resorting to 'grubby tricks' to get information, and as such could technically 'continually lose-out' in their royal reporting, as the 'Red-Tops' would then get all the 'scoops' and thus it would be inequitable to allow the tabloids to 'profit' [i.e. with more scoops] if the balance was not redressed in some way.

I don't want to throw this forum 'off-track' but if anyone is interesting and can point me to an appropriat thread for my proposed post, I can show you one of the 'grey-area tricks' used by tabloids to 'get royal news' and you can therefore see how dirty it gets.

Hope this helps

Alex

Sounds like we need a "British Royals and the Press" thread. Not only for the post you wish to make about the "grey-area tricks" but also a place to rant, rave and sometimes shake our heads in disgust at the printed media and its contributors.

You can't post pictures directly from your hard drive. You have to upload them to an image hosting server like Photobucket or Imageshack, and then post that url between the IMG tags.

Royal couple to share balcony kiss on wedding day - Telegraph


In a series of meetings, Bishop Chartres has been counselling them on how to cope with the pressure of building a family in the glare of public scrutiny. The couple are also believed to have discussed the impact their upbringings have had on them and how their roles would change as parents.

I guess it's never too soon

Crown princess Victoria and prince Daniel attend the wedding at Westminster Abbey, but they are not invited to the wedding party in the evening, because only 300 nearest to the happy couple are invited. Victoria told to Aftonbladet on Saturday, that they haven´t made any plans to Saturday evening yet.

Kate and William will be touring Canada from June 30th to July 8th. That might make it hard to attend a wedding in Monaco on the 9th.

Perhaps someone will adress this vital issue during their engagement tomorrow :P

tnks for the information. The only royals I'm aware will be attending the evening reception, are the Greek ones. Richard Quest from CNN interviewed King Constantine who confirmed he will attend all 3 events.

Things are going to be rough on kate then...cause William rides horses often.

Sure she's found a way to deal within the last eight years....she's been to his polo games so she must have some ways to handle the allergy
