They're real showbiz people IMO, David was a good footballer apparently and Victoria was a spice girl who now tries to design clothes. David and William might be pally due to the World Cup bid etc, I can except that. But seeing that bony structure of Victorias walk into Westminster will amuse me, if it's true.
Victoria is expecting a baby this summer, so I wouldn't expect her to be looking too bony. And her clothing range has actually been surprisingly successful (and Kate has asked to see a selection). Yes, they're showbiz, but I'm sure they'll be just fine at the wedding.

Perhaps Mrs. Beckham will design Kate's gown.

Maybe thats the one event where she will crack a smile instead of looking miserable, as usual.

I would be shocked if Posh was the bridal designer, no need for a plain looking size zero frock combined with plateau peeptoes on a royal bride.

Victoria herself has stated she is not ready to design a wedding dress.

But of course, she could always change her mind.

I wonder if marketing considerations will figure in these decisions. It's hard to know what's in a future princess's mind (or most brides, actually).

She's a success in her own right, maybe their career achievements aren't meaningful to some but to many their accomplishments are inspiring & worthwhile (particularly David's, you rarely hear anyone say anything bad about the way he goes about his football, everything else maybe they moan about but he's always been seen as a true pro in his football, he's an OBE already & many think he'll get a knighthood one day & he's a legend of the modern game). Then factor in all the charity work they've both been involved in, they have their own kids foundation, he's worked with UNICEF for years, bith have supported Comic & Sport Relief over the years & generally I think have done numerous things for charity, now whether this is done just to look good etc is beside the point if you ask me, they're still doing something to try & help people. And then like others have mentioned there is at least some level of personal connection/association between William & David & so to me at least the Beckhams aren't an unexpected invite.

I do hope they don't overshadow proceedings (I really doubt they actually will) of course as the media do love to focus on these two regardless of the occasion or whether they should be the focus etc. Anyway just my opinion, I just don't the fuss over them being invited, I don't think it "cheapens" the event or anything as I do honestly think David at the very least is fairly deserving of being invited & like someone posted, you can't invite one without inviting the husband/wife/partner.
I agree with your comments, and I think that the only thing that would over shadow William and Catherine on their wedding day is if by some miracle Diana rises from the dead to make an appearance, or if the second coming of Christ happens to fall on April 29th - lol.

Canadian mint marking royal wedding with collector coins - thestar.com

OTTAWA—The Royal Canadian Mint is striking a new series of collector coins commemorating the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

Details of the coins, which will include what the mint describes as an "eye-catching technological feature," will be revealed in the lead-up to the wedding day on April 29 and then released in May.

Just wondering about this article, has one of Dianas sisters ever acted as her l-i-w?

Yes Sternchen. Her eldest sister, Sarah. Diana, Princess of Wales idolized her when growing up. If Catherine can have her sister it would benefit both woman.

Well, the are getting married Easter Friday so I guess it's possible the second coming of Christ could happen around their wedding.

The Osbournes have been invited to the Royal wedding but are not attending per Sharon Osbourne.....

My opinion- why would you invite them to a Rotal wedding? Yes Kate and William can invite whomever they please but seriously ugh, makes me question their sense....Sharon says they don't know Kate or William so it begs the question why were they invited? Are the couple just inviting celebrities now?

Well, I would have to see the invite with thier name on it and perezhilton is not a very good source if you ask me...of course this is my opinion....

Have you actually ever seen Victoria's designs? Not meaning to be rude, at all. But Victoria's designs are actually very classy and sophisticated and much loved by celebs. She gets inspiration from Rouland Mouret, which says a lot about Victoria's taste.

Did she show the invite? I'm skeptical of celebrity claims like this. They're all about free publicity and this is an easy way to get it.
