I think only King and Queen of Jordan will attened the wedding, or perhaps Queen Noor who has a nice relation with Charles.

Oops, Zonk (#313). I forgot Margaret died before Carl Gustav became King. It was the other British 'Princess' who married CG who did become Queen. (Well, Louise would have been a princess if the 1st World War hadn't 'demoted' Continental Royalty to British Peers!)

I doubt many of the other Royal houses will attend. It's not as if any of the Brits are paticulary close to others.

^ I think a lot of the royal houses will attend. William may not be the heir to throne, he's heir's heir, but he's wedding is still very significant.

When Charles and Diana were married the swedish king and queen was at the wedding. I dont know if they attended any of the other princesses weddings.

Since we can rule out Carl-Philip attending if he cant bring Sofia along(he didnt go to a friends wedding because she couldnt go along) and the possiblity still exists that Victoria either has gotten a baby or is the final stages of her pregnancy she wont go(Daniel might if the baby has come) that leaves the wild card that is Madeleine. She might attend he she feels like it. If the king and queen goes then Victoria dont go for safteyreasons. After all, this event will be the target of extremists that want to hurt the UK

Why do i suspect that the swedish representation will be someone from our embassy.

Music: Elton John
Chuch: St Pauls Cathedral
Date: June 25, Midsummer

They don't do photos on the china, but I prefer it anyway because it's the official stuff and very well made and comes nicely boxed.

Here's a link if anybody's interested:Royal Collection <br>Fine Bone China</br>-The Royal Collection
Great recommendation -- thank you!

i don't know why people expect either Elton John or Paul McCartney to do music at the wedding; if anything, i would expect someone in William & Kate's own generation.

I hope they stick with classic church music, as there isn't much out there written after Star Wars.

I guess because Elton John sang at Diana's funeral, but I can't imagine they would have him sing at the wedding!

I agree, classic hymns and music.
No need to have a "modern" affair.

I thought Rosemarie Bradford's gown and overall appearance were beautiful, at her recent wedding to Harry Meade.

Especially the royal families of Europe and the world will attend the wedding of King and Queens. Crown prince and princesses in all European royal family and many princes, princesses will be there.
I think King Juan Carlos & Queen Sofia, King Gustav & Silvia, Queen Beatrix, Queen Margrethe & Prince Henrik, King Albert & Queen Paola, Queen Rania, Queen Noor, King Harald & Queen Sonja, Grand Duke Henri & Grand Duchess Maria Teressa, King Constantine & Queen Anne-Marie, Prince Albert, Princess Lalla Salma will attened the wedding

I wish I could be there.
TRF to be selected by drawing lots from a few people, what do you think?

Since we are hearing that they may make the wedding a bank holiday, I believe that they will pick a weekday to maximize the holiday effect. Maybe a Monday or a Friday to make it a 3-day weekend?

I'm sure a few crowned heads would attend, but I would like to see more of the second generation, as they are closer to age to William.

Love to see Guillaume & Charlotte attend. But the likelihood of Charlotte is almost zero.

I agree with this statement. Also, I read in one of the papers here in Australia that because William is not the head of state or 1st in line, the wedding will not be a state occasion and therefore some of the ceremonial will be toned down a touch. I assume this would also mean less crowned heads in attendance.
---------------------------------
I personally hope for St. Pauls Cathedral as the wedding venue. I dont know how I would feel getting married where my mothers funeral was if I was William if they chose Westminster.

On a slightly selfish note, I think a date at the end of June/early July would be great. This is when I am on school holidays next year and can stay up and watch it on TV.

Westminster is where he'll eventually be crowned. It's where his father will be crowned. What will he do, have his coronation somewhere else just because his mother's funeral was there?

I's an Abbey, it's what they are used for...

Weddings, Thanksgiving services, Rememberance readings and Funerals. Oh and can't forget Coronations

I don't understand the Diana's funeral issue. Diana didn't die in Westminster and she isn't entombed there. Westminster is over 1000 years old and some of the most significant people in the England's history are buried or commemorated there. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip were married and her coronation was held at Westminster. But because it was the place of Diana's funeral service it's wrong for Prince William to get married there?

I don't get it.

The issue is why is William apparently pushing this venue? One report is that the reason William wants to be married there is because it is where his mother's funeral took place. If that is the reason there is an issue there but if it is because it is a place of worship where many members of his family have had their funerals, including his mother but not exclusively hers, weddings, coronations etc then there isn't an issue.

I first suggested the Lover's Knot tiara, but now that I've seen pictures of the Strathmore tiara, I prefer that one

I think the Strathmore tiara would look perfect on Kate for her wedding day. As I kind of expect some simple elegance in her bridal attire, this tiara would be perfect. It also would be a good choice no matter how her hair is styled for the day.
