If it is really true that the dress is being created within palace walls, then I think the designer's name will be released in advance.
S/he won't have to worry about paparazzi breaking in, rifling through the trash, etc. like the Emanuels did, since the dress won't actually be on the studio premises.

(Also, perhaps the designer will do as the Emanuels did, and create two dresses, in case one is leaked before the wedding).

I remember reading somewhere that Norwegian royals accepted the invitation, but couldn't find the official announcement.

IMHO...the knowledge of the identity of the tailor of Catherine's wedding gown has nothing to do with the unravelling another enigma of the royal wedding. But, as so many have unknowingly done, the subliminal purpose is to attempt to add another thread to the fallacious cord that connects Catherine to Prince William's late mother Diana. The constant reference to her wedding to William's father Prince Charles as the epitome of royal weddings that all should strive to emulate to the minute detail boarders on obsession! Quite frankly the most obvious similarity between them is that they at some point in their lives were engaged to a royal prince. Now how many women in history fit that bill? If comparisons are being made of Catherine to former brides of princes of the BRF Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon is the obvious contender. They say she "stole" Prince Albert's heart and he vowed to marry no other...sound familiar? Once again I articulate the previous IMHO...

On another note Crown Princess Victoria & Prince Daniel officially representing Sweden is an excellent not only PR move but a diplomatic one also...would this be Victoria's first official visit to the UK? Do you think her and Daniel will attend all three events?

I would expect all the gathered royals to attend all 3 events.

Victoria was previously present at the 60th birthday party at Buckingham Palace for the Prince of Wales in November 2008. Her parents were present as well. Not sure if that counts as an official visit!

Is there a problem? I happen to like that designer's design, and think Kate would look good in it. We obviously have a differing opinion on that, but I don't see what the issue is here.


BTW, is this the first big-time royal event we're going to see Daniel at since he and Victoria's wedding last June? I know everyone thought it would be Albert and Charlene's, but then William and Kate had to go and announce a wedding date before theirs.

I suppose, the wedding of Tatiana Blatnik wasn't nearly as high profile and that was the first event they attended following their wedding.

No, no problem. I am just surprised. I can't find anything about that dress that is remotely attractive or appropriate for a Royal Wedding, however as you said...it's a difference of opinion. It doesn't look like something Kate would wear based on her conservative dress style.

A 21 gun salute for William & Kate

BBC News ( I was surprised to read that this may be the only one - I thought a similar salute might be fired in Hyde Park, but perhaps these are only fired for the queen & Prince of Wales)

You're definitely right, this is not the first royal marriage the couple attended, even if more high profile. In fairness the throne of Greece has been abolished, but Nicholas is still the son of a King, and not grandson. And a lot of royals including Prince and Princess Michael of Kent attended. Queen Sofia and possibly Queen Margrethe (It says the family minus Fred so I assume the queen went) were the only heads of state there but still. There were other heirs though like Haakon of Norway. The same question of whether the king/queen or heirs will come to the wedding, are raised by William's as well.

It won't stop people from breaking in and stalkingthe designer. He or she will have sketches and plans. They may be in the castle, but people will think there is a chance they are in the studio and break in. Or they will just follow the designer around demanding information from them.

Why should it be released in advance? They have made it clear it won't be. We will know the designer on the wedding day.

Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton will make sure no one can get their hands or eyes on the wedding dress!

Wow, nice! I especially want to know more about this part: "
The guns have not fired a salute for more than 100 years. Repairs to the brickwork are to be carried out beforehand by the Royal Engineers, who originally built the fort."

I think it's fantastic that those Royal Engineers are still around to do the repair work, truly amazing.

Of course, I mean this is the 21st century, people live longer. The forst was constructed in 1756, would only in their late 200's.

The couple may have decided against golden wedding rings made from Clogau St David's mine in Snowdonia:
