I have the question, when they went back to the palace as man and wife, William saluted many times, and than Cathrine bent down her head. Why?

To show her respect for the cause he was saluting.

I read about this and was very shocked! It's romantic, but probably not very smart.

Oh no. I don't think that was smart idea. A pre-nup is not a bad thing. It doesn't mean you don't love the person. It's about protecting yourself cause you never know what the future holds.

Let's say what if William turns into a demon and wants nothing to do with Kate? Then without a prenup she's screwed. She'll have to hire the best lawyers etc and a whole lot of time will be wasted. I hope it doesn't get to that but I'm saying those agreement are very important....especially if one has a lot to lose.

Agreed pre-nups should be signed when entering royal marriages.

The thing is, even if they did have a prenup, there's no reason to expect that a court would follow its terms. As of right now, they're not considered binding in any part of the UK. A court only recently allowed them to be entered into evidence at all, and it said that it would only be considered in certain circumstances.

Something I really wonder about: Kate entered the cathedreal with a ring at her finger, I think it was the engagement ring. Later she hadn't a ring at her finger when William gave her the wedding ring. In the coach I think she hadn' t the second one either. At the reception you can clearly see the two rings behind each other. So when she changed from one to none and to two?
It's not really important but funny to realize.

I could be that she did what I did when I married. When I got to the altar, I discreetly slipped my engagement ring onto my right hand. Once the wedding band was in place, I moved the engagement ring back to my left.

wedding scale

When Harry gets married do you think there will be the same amount of grandeur and worldwide excitement as William's?Or will he have a smaller scale wedding?[/QUOTE]



Well, IMO this WAS a pretty small scale wedding in terms of royal standards if you compare it with the scandinavian royal weddings or the dutch one (no great jewellery, no pre wedding evening receptions together with the bridal couple, no firework displays etc.)!
So, yes, I think Harry´s wedding could be as "grand" as this one, as Pr. Andrew´s wedding in 1986 (or Anne´s in 1973) wasn´t much more low-key than Charles and Dianas.

This was a fairly typical BRF wedding. They don't do the sort of stuff the others do.

Harry's won't be as grand as this unless William or The Queen or Charles is already deceased and he is 2nd in line.

This was similar to Andrew's but not as grand as Charles' but Charles was the heir apparent while William is only 2nd in line.

Harry's may very well not even be in London but be at St George's if in the present reign and after William and Kate have a couple of children - say he has dropped to 5th in line (William and Kate have two children) and the present Queen is still on the throne he wouldn't warrant the same scale of celebration but if he is still 3rd or even up to 2nd - William and Kate have no children and his father is King - then it would be similar.

I'm dying whilst waiting for it to come to the US (IF it comes to the US)! Usually we are a week behind. I don't know if we get the left overs or what, but my local bookstore usually only has about 2 or 3 copies on the newstand when I'm there. Some of the bigger issues have been absent.

She was wearing her engagement ring on her right hand on the way into the Abbey - I caught a glimpse of it at one point under her bouquet. When they came back out from signing the register she had moved it over next to her wedding band on her left hand.

also, a man should always enter an elevator first (to hold the doors open), walk in front of a woman when going down the aisle of a movie theatre (so he can break any stumble of hers), stairs - behind going up, in front going down, man in front when walking in a crowd, etc., etc. These are some of the active remains of Chivalry. Basically, it is common sense as most women are in high heels.
