It's not a big deal if you are a royal because a wedding is just as much an official engagement representing your country as it is a wedding. Being royal, you don't complain about not being invited to the evening event and if you were really bothered about arriving by rolls-royce, you get your palace staff to make the necessary arrangements.
Lets also not forget, HM herself did not attend the party in the evening.

V&D did have a lovely wedding, and I am sure all the invitees had a wonderful time. That said, we just do not do things in that grand a style here in the UK.

I don't think that William being the heir to the heir had anything to do with it or the recession. If I'm not mistaken it's a worldwide recession but it didn't stop the Swedes. Plus it's not just about the transport etc, there is a reluctance within the BRF IMO to mix with the European Royals and become friendly with them in the same way that those other Royal families are friendly with each other.

well angela, if it's true that's a very unwise attitude for the BRF to have, imo.

For sure, their Monarchy is one of the oldest and most secure but these are VERY republican times we are living in, and things can change almost overnight.

Just ask the Royal Families of Nepal and Iran.

The way I see it, all the Royals of the 21st century are in the same boat...with their subjects questioning their relevancy more than ever.

I still think the big deal was that William isn't the sovereigns son but the sovereigns grandson. If Victoria did it better (isn't she first in line?) then good for her. It's about time other royal houses get some attention.

Sigh,why does the BRF have to do most events in private!

Of course, his speech probably would have been different had it been for public consumption.
