I would agree on both statements: the list should have been proof read before being released. Here's hoping that on Monday morning, the list will have been reviewed and cleaned up.

They probably released it because the constant questions about who has been invited to the wedding. Because in the past, BP has only announced the attendees a day or two before the wedding. Although to be honest, the last royal wedding (Charles and Camilla) was the first one that was held during the media age of the internet, etc. Sophie and Edward married when the internet was out but it wasn't as so widespread. Now you have Twitter, Facebook, blogs, etc. I think most of the old guard is used to dealing with newspapers!

So they are newbies in that sense. They really should have learned something from the Swedish wedding.

I've always heard that his funeral eulogy enraged William and caused a rift between them. (Truthfully, I'm surprised William invited him at all).

It's his uncle. He can't very well invite his maternal aunts and not Earl Spencer. That would give the press a field day with an endless ream of suppositions.

I wouldn't anticipate there to be a rift as such, rather, there's never been any public held occasion apart from the memorial or concert held for Diana, by where we would see them interact. Who knows what kind of correspondance they have. Only they know

The Spencer's have as much of a right to be there (not that you were suggesting they don't) as William's paternal relatives and I was glad to note that they are seated behind Catherine's immediate family. An appropriate seating arrangement, I thought.

I agree and I also think it is an appropriate seating arrangement. It is and remains, after all, his family from his mother's side.

After looking at the arrangements I was wondering where Diana would be sitting if she were still alive. Obviously not with the Middletons or Charles and Camilla.

She'd sit with her family, the Spencers.

Well, at least one name has already been removed from the guest list: the Prince of Bahrain. Just as well, really, because there would have been demonstrations in London. Instead, the excuse was "the ongoing situation in the Middle East".

I wish I could see Diana, but I'm sure that somewhere will be followed by...
Spencer family, no one in this interesting.

CP Hakoon & CP Mette-Marit and CP Frederik & CP Mary could not see the list. I wondered.

A foreigner with a question.

Hey,

I am from Oslo in Norway and I am interested in the royal wedding. I find the British monarchy far more interesting than the Norwegian monarchy and I can't wait for the wedding.

I was wondering, my knowledge of the royal family is limited, and I was wondering about something. Given the recent issues emerging in Bahrain and the video evidence of military helicopters gunning down peaceful protestors, why is the Crown Prince of Bahrain attending the wedding?

Doesn't it seem that, by inviting the crown prince of Bahrain, the royal family are seemingly condoning the massacres?

Thanks for your answers in advance, I am confused.

Norway and Denmark are represented by King Harald and Queen Sonja and Queen Margrethe, respectively.

I am sure that Diana will oversee this all, even though she is mortally no longer with us. And I think having the Spencers there will give a feeling that she is at least somehow present. They are, after all, her siblings and in-laws.

Does the royal family choose who will be at the wedding or does the invitation specifically states who exactly is invited?

I just don't understand why Margarethe is invited and not Fred and Mary.

Maybe they rejected the invitation being busy with different things,I think they do have their own specific reasons

Was it not so that the invitations were sent to the Heads of State, who could then decide who to send?

I believe I have read something like that on these forums.

Correct. Invitations were sent to all the crowned heads of state. They got to decide if they attended or not, or if they would be represented by other members of their family or not.

The Lady Saltoun was invited and considered a member of the extended British Royal family. It's an interesting comment since she was married to one of Queen Victoria's great grandson's.

From doing some reading, Queen Elizabeth has always considered them part of the family.

I was wondering about the Earl of Harewood.
Did I miss something or is he not on the invite list.
