@JanetNorCal I'm not aware of any plans to publish evening guest list. They regard it as totally private. No official pics.

We don't expect anyone from the palace to even give us a flavour of the best man's speech in the evening. We'll have to try guests after.
The palace it seems isn't giving in so I guess we'll have to make do with paparazzi shots and info from the guests.

New article: k after reading all that the palace is seriously beginning to piss me off they have to give us something from the evening reception!

Why do they have to give us anything from the evening reception?

They want William and Kate to have a private celebration and they are ensuring that they get it.

Just because other royal houses wish to deny their young couples any privacy on their wedding day doesn't mean that the British have to do so.

I am pleased that the British are insisting on giving the couple some time to simply relax, be themselves and enjoy some of the day without the prying eyes of a lot of people they don't know, will probably never meet and about whom, in a real sense, they don't care.

We see the wedding and the balcony and that is as it should be.

No I just meant they could atleast give us a small something even just a small official article just stating " Oh the couple and their friends danced the night away to 90's music" or just something like that I don't need full on like other royals do just something anything! It's just judging by what I'm hearing we're not going to know ANYTHING heck we even got more from Charles and Camilla's wedding I believe we got an article on the reception. And who knows maybe the other couples ASKED to release photos of their receptions we never know how it works I doubt other royal households denied anyone privacy I'm sure the couple would have to give their consent first.

Not sure where to put this but US magazine Life& Style is saying Chelsy Davy will wear a long Alberta Ferretti dress to wedding and a shorter one to night reception. They claim designer approach her and offered gowns for free to wear to wedding-

Ditto. I share your sentiments in this regard. In all honesty and on the big scheme of things, we're a bunch of nobodies as far as William and Catherine are concerned, so they do not have to release anything they don't wish to. It's their wedding, and we should be happy we get to see what we are getting to see.

The saying that comes to mind here is what I tell my students when they get mad for not getting the cookie they wanted, or what have you:

'You get what you get, and you don't get upset'.

I need to explain myself. When reading that article I got so excited and was like "oh how I wish I was there" which is why I said I wish they'd release something. When I say I'm angry they're not giving us anything I mean in the sense that from everything I am hearing it almost feels like we'll have zero details from the evening reception.

Normally no matter what wedding it was be it Charles and Di or Edward and Sophie we always heard about the reception afterwards but it just sorta feels like this time we won't hear anything. Not that this will be the case but it just feels like it to me. I'm not asking for the couple to release private photos or videos(though I wouldn't be against them doing that but they're not going to) all I'm asking for a little bit of info on what happened.

I guess some of us will still see it as an invasion of privacy and others would enjoy to read some info. I dunno I generally love experience every aspect of the wedding. I just sorta feel part of the "family" that way. I'm really excited for them and just want to hear little details like "the Queen danced to the YMCA" or something like that. In a sense for me when I read stuff like that it's not only humbling but makes me laugh. I like reading that they all enjoyed themselves.

I'm not trying to invade their privacy I mean I am majorly excited for that day I probably won't even be as excited for my own wedding day. And really honestly in my opinion yes we don't know them but I think William and Kate are smart enough to understand that the public are the people who support you so of course there's going to be a high level of interest on the whole day. I really don't think they don't "care" about us.

Ok, not to be rude, but I have never really thought too highly of Guy Pelly, and truly hope he does not have as much pull in this wedding as some of these articles are saying. Not to be a snob, not that I know William and Harry, but this is a royal prince, and to cheapen it, somewhat, as to try and mix common vs. pomp vs. elegant vs. royal, has to be difficult at best. I mean, from what I have read of this young man, I really hope the Queen has a lot of say in this. It would seem sadly:

Charles and Camilla are determined to put their out of this world stamp on it...their inviting corporate sponsors, their own friends, their out of touchness. I am sorry, but in MY view, Camilla walks a fine line in having any say in any of this. She is NOT his mother, her mother, etc. And given the past, lady, stay out of it, or, tread lightly with advice and any input.

While I truly appreciate William and Harry's down to earth and grounded frames of mind, this is not a wedding for their common friends to really have much say. You risk..cheapening it. I am not trying to sound mean or cause trouble, but at the end of the day, they are different than us...they are royal, and while I know it is their wedding, we expect, and they should provide, the pomp and circumstance. I do very much love, given the state of the world's economical challenges, they are certainly creating a wedding that respects and acknowledges what is going on.

Just my two cents, not trying to offend anyone.

And now you have explained one of the reasons why I have become a republican - the sheer ordinariness of William and Harry.

That they have repordely asked Guy Pelly to help organise the dancing for the evening isn't a surprise. It is what he does - run a nightclub and Harry and William enjoy clubbing at his place.

As for Camilla. If it is true that she was given the right to cross off people then remember that she would only have been given that right by William so he must also approve of her decision to cross off people - just as someone crossed off Fergie. If William had really wanted these people there then noone would have been crossed off. But I also take these reports with a grain of salt - they are from the DM and the source for the Camilla crossing off people is from one of them crossed off. Since Diana died have either of them had anything to do with William? Camilla on the other hand has been a major part of his life for the last decade as his father's partner and wife. The fact that he is including Camilla's granddaughter is his wedding party speaks volumes for how William sees Camilla.

As for the invites to friends of Charles read carefully. The one that I remember is the one that says an American billionaire is getting a free flight to America in exchange for an invite but if you read the article carefully this person is a big time supporter of Charles' charity and may very well be getting the invite for that reason.

One to compare is with is the story that a top guy from Audi is being invited and then reports of William getting an Audi for Kate as a wedding gift - now the DM headline could have been Audi execs helps William with wedding gift for Kate in exchange for invite - but that wouldn't accurately reflect the story and wouldn't be written because it would put William in a bad light - and the DM won't do that. The DM thinks that by attacking Charles they are doing a service to William and his dead mother.

The father of the groom, like fathers/parents of the groom everywhere have some say in the wedding and who is invited - just as the parents of the bride do.

How do you think they should behave then? What would make them less ordinary or not at all?

They are supposed to be princes but they don't come across as in any way different to the rest of us. Charles and his siblings were very much royal at the ages that William and Harry are now. They didn't go to clubs and get drunk publicly as Harry has done and William as well.

They don't set themselves apart in any way. If they aren't different then why should they get the privileges and the position?

I was a monarchist when I started here in 2008 but reading the posts here and realising just how ordinary William and Harry are - lacking the regal nature that royals should have - I have become an avowed republican and can't wait for the next referendum in Australia as I will certainly vote for a republic next time. I mean how could anyone actually want William as a future King and Kate - she is nice and all that -- but if the girl next door can be a princess with all that that entails then there is no reason why the girl on the other side shouldn't be able to become my Head of State - why should the one who is lucky enough to fall in love with a particular man get the position while the other is denied it?

I completely disagree with the above post :)

I don't see William as ordinary in any way, nor does he represent the ordinary ideal of the common person. He knows who he is, we know who he is and there is nothing ordinary about that!

So the man has had a drink or few at a nightclub? Big deal. If that's the worst of it then anyone who is inclined to judge him on that needs to get a grip.

Tell me what elected politician hasn't had a few too many drinks or found themselves in a less than desirable situation. In fact, I don't think you're a politician unless you or your dignity has been compromised in some way

It would appear that William has not found himself in such company, at least nothing which has ever come to light and until it does, I'd endeavour to suggest it hasn't happened. He's sensible and to me that's perfectly evident.

And I'd certainly want him to be my King. The man, to me, "get's it". Constitutional matters aside, the apparent ease with which he interacts with those he meets does not suggest to me he is ordinary, but quite the opposite. He is a man who despite the immense wealth and privilege, is personable and considerate. The man reflects some wonderful values though yet a good many are rather dissimilar to those of his father and his grandmother where the public are concerned. He isn't intimated to get involved and I mean hands on. And regularlyat that.

It's laughable to think this man should in some way replicate the way his father handles himself socially. If anything, you'd probably want to distance yourself from that style of social awkwardness which Charles certainly has. And it seems to be what William has done and good for him. He isn't his father. Though let it be said that that may have more to do with William being his own person, than intentionally wanting to be different to his father.

Henry has been a bit of dill but in recent years appears to be, as would be expected of someone his age, maturing into a reasonable and responsible young adult by all accounts.

Catherine may be common born, but evidently has a good deal of self respect and handles herself with such dignity. And whilst the consort of the monarch has no constitutional significance in Australia, as a dual British citizen, I have not the slightest ounce of protest that this lady should one day, as is currently expected to happen, become my Queen. And as an Australian, my sentiment is unchanged. She'll make a wonderful wife for the King of Australia in the unlikely event William actually becomes King of this continent and her external territories.

Intelligent, engaging, trustworthy and loyal. It's my opinion you'd be hard pressed to find all those qualities in your average 'girl next door'. So certainly for me, there is something quite reassuring and something very 'uncommon' about this young woman.

Perhaps the British posters have a better look on this: how do you think the weather will be this coming Friday?
Cloudy, partly cloudy, sunny, etcetera?

I think it's fairly important that it is at least dry.

How on earth does the writer know what William will say? I can't imagine anyone in William's circle (his friends or Harry) giving out this information.

This looks incredibly made up to me.
