Another Windsor family drama is unraveling right before our eyes, if this story is to be believed. Up until now I thought William was more like Charles in temperament, but he sounds more like Diana here. It's one thing to want to modernize, but doing away with protocol and calling the old institution old fashioned is kind of duh...

This is the Daily Mail after all. I wouldn't put much truth into what they are writing these days.

I think that's a bit of an overreaction. William and Catherine should have the right to plan their own wedding, while obviously keeping with traditions of other royal weddings. It's not an either/or thing.

Besides, there's a reason they call it the Daily Fail.

Well Eugenie did a reading at Peter's wedding. But that doesn't mean anything as we don't know what type of relationship the Yorks have with the Wales boys. Anything is possible at this point. Either way, I don't see teh Yorks participating in the wedding, and really I don't see Zara doing the same either.

Point very well taken. But I stand by the duh part.

I think we're going to see a wedding that will be a celebration for all of us to be happy about.
I love it! It shows the kind of people that William and Kate are and how they want to start their life together as a Royal couple. He seems to have learned an important lesson from his Mother which that it is more important to be OF the people rather than just being OF the Crown. It shows that both William and Kate want to break through the typical Royal protocol of Royalty and truly share their day.

It's simply brilliant.

I hope it's a tiara event just b/c I'd love to see what tiara's Beatrice and Eugenie will wear. But knowing the BRF it'll be hats everywhere! Hopefully Queen Beatrix is there to provide us with some interesting headgear And should Letizia and Felipe go we'll finally see here in a hat as the Spanish royals hardly wear them. And Queen Rania & CP Masako if they're there!

I don't think you will see CP Masako. She hasn't attended a foreign wedding in years if at all. If because of her illness she can't do duties inside her country it will NOT go over well if she is attending a wedding outside the country.

I am on the fence if Beatrix will come. She was certainly at Diana's wedding but she wasn't a Queen yet. I can't remember if she attended Andrew/Sarah's. I think you will see Maxima and WA or but most likely Laurentien and her husband (can't remember his name of the bat). Especially since they (Laurentien) attended Charles and Camilla's wedding.

British royal weddings are rarely, if ever, tiara affairs. They are usually late morning events making tiaras highly unlikely. Hats are far preferable in a church anyway in my opinion - tiaras for balls and dinners but hats for weddings and funerals.

They said William has insisted his four-strong team of aides take charge – and has kept Buckingham Palace, which would normally play a key role, ‘largely in the dark’.
I do take it with a grain of salt since it is the Daily Mail. Actually, as an American, once I'm done reading their royalty articles, I like to see their take on the American celebrity gossip because they really seem to make something out of nothing.

But this article does remind me a little bit of the political psychology courses I took as an undergrad. This is William's first real chance to assert himself in a state matter, and it could show us something of his character and the leadership style he will use as king.

Royal wedding: Prince William's surprise delay is a gift to President Barack Obama - Telegraph

Prince William's admission that he and Kate Middleton had been "talking about marriage for a while" has meant that the delay in announcing the wedding date has caused some surprise.

Mandrake hears that the reason the couple have not been able to name the day is because of the difficulties in finding a window in the diary of President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle.

^ Michelle can make a solo appearance like Nancy Reagan did for Charles and Diana's wedding.

Charles was also very authoritative when planning his wedding. why is the Daily Mail making a big deal out of this?

I really love the Phillipa Lepley gown that's in the article. It would look nice on Kate as she has the body for it.

^^I think I would prefer if only Mrs. Obama goes to the wedding. I don't know why (I know William is 'important' and all) but it just seems so trivial for the President. Also, President Obama has a way of stealing the whole thunder, if you know what I mean. I like him but he's very overwhelming presence anywhere he goes. I can see the headlines:
President Obama attends wedding
Prince William wed Kate Middleton as President Obama looks on

It could be my rebellious Colonial spirit, but the idea of William giving the courtiers conniptions because he wants to organise his own wedding pleases me immensely and I hope this article is true. If it is, William has gone up in my estimation. I have long believed it is high time the role of the courtiers was reduced to that of, essentially, staff to the RF. IMO they are there to advise, certainly, but in the final analysis, and assuming no mental incapacity on the part of the Royals in question, I think the Royals should be the ones to tell the courtiers what they want done, and that it is up to the courtiers to work out how to do it, not the other way around.

This hasn't got a lot to do with Catherine's current events, however this is England. The weather is never predictable.

Beatrixcertzauilywas a Queen at CVharles and Dianas Wedding as the Wedding toiok placein July1981 and she succeeded her mother in April 1980.
As far as i remember there where not many Royals at Andrews Wedding but at the Wedding of Anne and Mark there where quiet some, like Beatric and Claus, Harald and son ja etc.

And even if it's in the afternoon like Edward's Wedding there are no tiaras worn. And i think if they wouldmake it a white tie Wedding then it wouldbe seen as toomuch pomp etc.
