More invite details: Invitations arrive for Royal wedding - Telegraph

A royal aide said: "Ultimately who would be attending the Palace reception was the couple's choice. It will be a mixture of their friends, people who are known personally to the Royal family and members of the foreign Royal families. There will not be many people present who are there just by dint of their office. The couple were also keen to keep the evening reception intimate."

There will be two versions of the invitation sent to guests for day-time events - one inviting them to the ceremony at the Abbey only and another also including details of the Buckingham Palace reception. A separate invitation will be sent to the couple's close friends and family for the dinner.

Members of the late Diana, Princess of Wales's family are also expected to attend the entire day, including her elder sisters Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and her three children, the Prince's cousins Emily, George and Celia to whom he is close. Earl Spencer, Prince William's uncle, is also expected to attend with his new fiancee, Karen Gordon.

I dunno why it is maybe it's just me but the way these articles are written the dinner reception sounds so boring somehow I cannot picture any dancing the way it's written lol but obviously there will be since that's what the press release said. Question where in the world would this reception be held at BP somewhere where there is a dance floor I take it?

It's this room right? http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2008/...x327_popup.jpg

I still don't see where they'd have room to dance I dunno why I can't see it maybe it's just the picture that's making it hard to imagine.

That room is the formal dining room not the ballroom. It's got carpet on the floor! You can't dance on a carpeted floor! The ballroom has a wooden floor and no sideboards at the walls when food dishes are kept. They could very easily eat on one room and then open out into the ballroom where a band is stationed to play the night away. (This is what happened at the Swedish royal wedding last year, the final royal guests were see leaving at 4am! It was a good night!)

I would have liked to have a ball for a reception and with 40 crowned heads attending. Any chance of tiaras in the evening?

I`m a bit confused - the article says that 40 crowned heads (I guess Kings and Queens) have been invited and then it says 40 members of foreign royalty which is not the same. If 40 is the number, then it`s not much, is it?

While more recent precedent makes it unlikely, you're not being completely out there. The future Edward VII wore his garter robes to his wedding in 1863.

Thank you, Princess Robijn So it`s 40 foreign royals. I guess each royal family will be represented by one couple only? Well, it makes sense since to the recent royal weddings the BRF sent only one or two reprentatives (Prince Charles for the Spanish wedding, Edward and Sophie for the Danish or Swedish wedding etc.)

I don't know how much store we can set by expectations; wasn't Sarah Ferguson expected to receive an invitation?

Not all of these Commonwealth countries have the Queen as the Head of State and so don't have a Governor-General!!!! For example South Africa and India are both republics, they have presidents, not a governor general. There are 15 Commonwealth countries that have a governor-general, so don't know where the number 60 comes from. Although I saw one suggestion, that retired Governors-general could be invited. Or, Australia has state governors, maybe they are being invited along with the Governor-General. That bumps up the number, do the individual Canadian provinces each have a governor?
