With fruitcake, I still do that. The icing is the best bit.
I hope they don't just have a plain white cake with no decoration.

Although the tiara looks lovely on her, I don't see her wearing it for the wedding, nor do I see her wearing it anytime in the near future simply due to the comparison issue.

I recently read in a book about queen Victoria's court that the queen insisted that all princesses had to wear tiaras for dinner which some hated and complained they get headaches from wearing them, so the queen allowed them to wear golden hairnets renaissance style instead which became some sort fo Royal fashion after that.

I wonder how Catherine would look with such a hairnet with integrated tiara part as there surely are some left in the Royal vaults?

Princess Michael of Kent wore one (with flowers) at her wedding, and it looked very nice.

According to this website, the royal family of Spain hasn´t got invitations to the wedding yet.

IMO, it would be unwarranted and over the top. While William is part-Spencer, she is not marrying into the Spencer family, she's marrying into the Windsors. The Spencer Tiara is reserved for Spencer brides, or women marrying into that family. Kate doesn't fit that description.

She doesn't need to honor Diana's memory throughout her wedding ceremony. The wedding should be about William and herself, not his dead mother.

I think that the lovers-knot tiara is too grand for Kate to wear at this time. Given her status within the family, I'd expect her to wear something smaller. People seem to forget that Diana was The Princess of Wales after her marriage and so was due a tiara that reflected that. Had Diana been still a member of the BRF after the Queen Mother died, I expect that she'd be wearing the Honeycomb tiara that Camilla now wears. It had belonged to the Queen Mother. I could be wrong, but I expect a more modest tiara for Kate, perhaps something more along the lines of a bandeau.

I don't want to bring the Obama thing up again but Nancy Regan, who was First Lady at the time, attended Prince Andrew's wedding in 1986 and it also wasn't a state occasion. I'm not saying PW should invite Michelle Obama to his wedding just that I don't see how that can be used as an excuse for not inviting her when it's happened before.

The Reagan's had a special relationship with the British Royal family. The Obama's don't have the same relationship.

Furthermore, neither William nor Catherine have ever met the Obamas. So definitely no special relationship, no relationship at all.

As an American and an African American I have no problem with the fact the BRF didn't invite the Obama's to the wedding. It never occured to me that they would be invited given that William is not the heir and therefore not a head of state. If was Charles I'd raise and eyebrow; but even then I wouldn't be offended.. What bothers me is the implication that the lack of invite means the Queens "hates" (as I saw posted here last evening) the Obamas or that the has Queen's preference for "other" US President's. I don't believe the Queen of England has the time or the interest to take a paritisan stance on U.S politics. And truly hope the person wasn't inferring that the lack of invite was race based. I don't believe the the Queen is a bigot and given that she regularly entertains kings of African nations and and Afro-English I don't see her suddenly making a point exclude anyone based on race.

Now, can we get back to the topic of wedding musing & suggestion about the upcoming wedding? And let's remember that there are many nations, religions, ethnicities and nationalities posting here and be cognizant of offensive, thanks. Had to get that off my chest after reading some the comments by posters.

The Obamas are Not attending.

End of Story.

Any and ALL posts that insist on talking about their lack of presence will be deleted without notice.

I agree, I'm hoping to see Catherine in a smaller tiara too.

How reliable is that website? Is the Spanish royal family known for disclosing this type of info in advance? I'd be very surprised if the Spanish royal family wasn't invited.

Much as I love this thread , it's getting difficult to separate rumour from the facts. Is there any plan to have a thread to post what we know as opposed to what we are speculating?

There is such a thread, Elly.

You can find it here http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ton-29332.html .

If anyone has any OFFICIAL information that is has been released by Clarence House, announced on Twitter, etc. please forward this information to any of members of the moderation team, and we will post it.

That thread will be opened as we get closer to the wedding as well.

Thanks!

Thank you Zonk. Does this mean that the details of invites sent out to Foreign Royalty have not been officially released?

The Clarence House press release says this:

Notes to Editors

Please note we are not releasing the names of individual invitees.

So I expect not.
