Sunday a Flemish royalty TV program showed a little interview with Princess Victoria.
She said she and Daniel were really looking forward to the wedding and that they were curious how Kate and William handled everything because they know now that a lot of decissions have to be taken when you're getting married.

maybe the question has been asked, but I still don't understand why all the monarch's and spouses with the crown princely couples weren't invited?! Even if William is only a heir to the heir, this is the most worldwide talked about and important wedding of the 21st century so far. (may all the other crown princely couples forgive me). Why do we not see any member of the Jordanian Royal family? (I undersatand why Mubarak and Ghadafi aren't showing up)

All I can offer by way of a response is that we have been continually told that the guestlist is the work of Catherine and William who have been very heavily involved in its compilation [compare Charles and Diana's Wedding and that of Sarah and Andrew, where both couples' main input was to supply lists of their own friends and relatives who they wanted to attend]. With William and Catherine's wedding, we have been told that every single decision about the ceremony, the receptions, the guestlist etc has been the 'hands-on' work of Catherine and William and they believe that the mix of guests they have chosen is one which is the best way of arriving at the most 'personal' wedding they can.

Incidentally, I understand that an invitation to President Obama and in particular his wife Michelle was NOT issued because of the HUGE extra security that would be required, which is apparently necessary in addition to the present large security operation. Apparently lots of US secret service people would have had to be present and it would have been impossible [allegedly] to integrate them with the present English arrangements. To 'compensate' for any alleged 'snub' to the Obamas, a State Visit is being planned for them in a few weeks' time.

Hope this helps

Alex

Also, this is wedding of the heir's heir, not the heir to the throne. This means the wedding is less "formal" (fewer official guests, etc). When Prince Charles married, as the heir, tons of dignitaries and major foreign royals came (including the emperor of Japan, who hasn't attended any other heir's wedding).

My understanding is that the invitations went to the monarchs and the monarchs themselves decided who would attend. So Queen Margrethe decided to go herself on behalf of Denmark, but King Carl Gustaf decided to send Victoria and Daniel on behalf of Sweden.

I suspect the reason Jordanians are not attending is that they are carefully watching the protests in the Middle East and not wanting to appear like they are partying when things are going down in their country. The situation seems to be changing rather rapidly there.

Actually, I suspect that the Obamas are glad they weren't invited with everything that has happened this week. Now they can visit the storm-damaged areas in Alabama before heading to the shuttle launch in Florida.

The reclusive Duchess of Kent will break a long self-imposed exile from public life to attend the royal wedding.

The 78-year-old, who prefers to be known simply by her first name, Katharine, will appear at the ceremony on the arm of her husband the duke, who is the Queen’s cousin.
A rare occasion indeed to see the wonderfull Catherine,Duchess of Kent again!

The Obama's will pop-in for a State Visit in may,so that's soon.And ofcourse we all know that as William isn't an Heir,all is a tad notched down so no elected Heads of State,just family,and all the Royals are Family one way or another.Loved the attendance by the Lady Elizabeth Anson!!

NO,it is not Auntie!It's the most hyped up media wedding of this year,yes,not this century!And especially the americans can't get enough of it to hype it up,they seem to think a Monarchy is a Disney invention and this is a film-set in London as one of the BBC reporters said this early morning,and he was right.For more explanations read Lady K's post

It is definitely the most spoken about wedding of the century so far. Everyone around the world knows that today is the big day, but noone I know knew that Felipe and Letizia, Mary and Fred, WA and Maxima, Philipe and mathilde, Haakon and MM, and Victoria and Daniel were getting married the day they were. I do admit though, being down the line the way William is protocol wise etc. it doesn't require to have the masses of Royalty.

Surprised how many women are in bright, light colors like pink and almost WHITE! And some of the hats are atrociously bright... I hope The Duchess of Cambridge-to-be blows them all out of the water...
