What Will Prince William wear to his wedding?

Does anyone know what Prince William will wear to his wedding? Is there a special uniform or will he wear his RAF dress uniform?

Let's not load an irrelevant history onto Ms. Catherine Middleton in the 21st century.
I am only confirming facts.

As for superstitions: if the BRF wasn't superstitious, they would have let Diana name her firstborn son John, after her father, as she wanted.

But no: at once rose associations with King John the Lackland, and Prince John Windsor pushed away by his family because of his epilepsy, which they considered a curse.

You make excuses about it to me & what is the BRF doing? The same.

To gabby windsor - my newspaper this morning (The Scotsman) gave a sort of 'time-line' of their relationship. It indicates a break up during their last year at University (2004/2005) when William appeared to be struck on Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe (evidently a blue-blooded heiress). There was also the 'break-up' in 2007, but I think that appears to be more of a pulling back than a break-up. It would appear, anyway, that in William's mind the proper break-up was the earlier one.

I assume he will wear either a morning suit or his military uniform at the present time.

Hihi, as this wedding hopefully is no "MOURNING" event, you surely meant a "Morning Suit"

Can't people just be happy for the two of them? You don't know them, they don't know you, they aren't friends or members of your family.

ROYAL WEDDING SEEN PUMPING $1B INTO U.K. ECONOMY

LONDON, Nov 17 (Reuters) - The marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton next year could give a 620 million pound ($985 million) boost to the British economy, retail reseachers Verdict said on Wednesday. The forecast came as Asda, Britain's second-biggest supermarket group, said it was already selling a 5 pound mug to commemorate the engagement of the heir to the British throne to his long-term girlfriend, announced on Tuesday. Verdict estimated the engagement could be worth 12-18 million pounds in merchandise sales, while sales of wedding-related products could top 26 million pounds. The real boost to the economy, however, could come from creating a "feel-good factor" among consumers that proved elusive this year with the England team's dismal performance in the soccer World Cup. "If, as expected, it is a big set-piece event, it could well capture the nation's imagination and provide a fillip to the retail sector," said Verdict consulting director Neil Saunders. Verdict forecast food and grocery retailers could benefit to the tune of 360 million pounds as shoppers buy treats like wine and champagne to toast the happy couple, while travel and tourism revenues could be boosted by an estimated 216 million.

I think he'll wear a uniform just like most crown princes.

I feel soooo happy for them. It is like the end of the malediction. A love marriage, not an arranged one!

Diana would have been very happy.

I'm sure she is somewhere, she watches everything and she smiles.

Except William is not the Crown Prince. However, since he is in the military, and if he follows tradition, I would imagine he he will wear his.

Prince William & Kate Middleton wedding: Royals warned not to dump cost on taxpayer | Mail Online

Quote:
The Royal family has been warned not to leave taxpayers facing an enormous bill for a lavish wedding following Prince William's engagement.
Campaigners insist it will be 'sickening' for the public purse to be squeezed for the occasion at a time of such austerity and drastic spending cuts.

The cost of providing security for such a high-profiled event alone is expected to run into millions of pounds at a time when police budgets are stretched.

Anti-monarchy campaign group Republic has declared the wedding a 'private matter' and urged the Government not to spend a 'single penny more' on the Royals.
There is a poll on the article entitled "Are you happy to spend money on the wedding", and I don't know how many people have voted but at the moment the statistics lay at 72% = No and 28% = Yes.

Totally unrealistic. This wedding promises to bring significant business to the city.

Yes to the city, but not to the UK as a whole.
I can understand there argument that this wedding shouldn't be paid for by the public.

The public is going to pay for some of this wedding, in the form of police officers who will be needed to keep public order.

With that in mind, the police officers will then in turn spend their hard earned money in the cities and towns that they live by "living." So it has a trickle down effect.
