Yvonne Yorke: Bollywood Bash at Buckingham Palace!
Quote:
It seems that ballroom "Dancing with the Stars," Bollywood-style, is set to arrive at Buckingham Palace. The Press Trust India has reported that celebrated Indian choreographer and entertainer Sandip Soparrkar and his dancer wife, Jesse Randhawa, will perform for guests at the Buckingham Palace reception after the wedding. With his expertise, Soparrkar has previously been honored by Prince Charles with a letter of recognition for his efforts in promoting ballroom dancing in India.

Nothing against Jane, but what a pointless addition to the program and I certainly am glad of my decison to have declined a signed book from Katie Nicholl mid last year. Nooo loss there!

cannot believe it! Actually I can't stop laughing
The whole thing is beyond my comprehension.

Jane Seymour will probably know as much as Katie Nicholl about William & Kate.

Is that simply because Camilla is Charles' wife?
I think that having one of Diana's sisters to ride along in the carriage instead of Camilla would infer that one of Diana's sisters has been acting as a kind of guardian or "second mother" to William which I don't think is the case. Whatever Camilla's relationship is with William, she is at the very least his step-mother and being the wife of his father it just makes sense that she rides with him. Had William lost BOTH his parents, it is conceivable I imagine that one of his aunts or uncles (from either side of the family) would have acted as his guardian and would therefore be riding in the procession.

what William and Kate would think if they saw that?

Actually I wonder if they know about all the merchandising about their wedding. The mugs, the condom, the GE refrigerator. I can see them cringing just as we did when we saw some of those crazy ideas.

I am sure they are fully aware. They must read the press or get a press briefing from their office on a regular basis.

Skippy, I understood your question and perhaps if was only 1 aunt, it would be easier. But with Sarah and Jane that would prove to be another difficult decision.

When the day finally comes, I'll be watching and really happy for the couple, but I know that there will be a moment, at the altar, or later on when we get to see some of the official pictures, that I will think: "Jezz, can't believe his mum is not there. Of all people " ........
and probably share a tear and then move on . (have the feeling I won't be the only one after that ET video, though )

I also think that William has good relationship with his Spencer aunts. I am not sure they are as close as they were as children because of his royal lifestyle. Away at boarding school, college, military life, etc.

That being said he does have a good relationship with Camilla. She is his father's wife. The Spencer aunts will be there, etc. Its all good.
Actually I love when questions and thoughts come out that make us think.

It *is* going to be all good. I think William and Kate both are really putting a lot of thought into what goes on for their day (as in William stating down under that he's missed a week of wedding planning) and are taking special pains to make sure everyone feels a part of their day and that no one will be excluded. That's just the kind of folks they are.

We have to realize that of course Diana is going to be a big part of anything that is wedding related and I'm sure William is appreciative of that but I don't think he'd ever want anything to detract from the importance of the other people that are just as important in his and Kate's lives.

I think also that it is really fitting for the parents of the couple to all ride together back to BP. It kind of denotes that all 4 of them are equally important to the bride and the groom.

I know I asked this question before but the thread kind of got off on Diana tangent... about the bridal procession. We know that Kate will be escort to the altar by her father but what about the seating of the other parents? Will Carole be escorted by an usher and if so, will Camilla then be escorted by an usher with Charles in tow? This may be where we see the Spencer boy and Wills friend that are rumored to be ushers? I know in both cases where I was mother of the groom, the mothers and step mothers were escorted by an usher with their respective spouses in tow.

I think Miss Midleton will arrive with her son. It was like this at Charles and Diana's Wedding. But they Spencer Family arrived quiet some time before the Royal Family even some of the guests arrived after them.
And Camilla will most likely arrive with Charles.
What i wonder will the seating direct before the Altarlike at previous royal Weddings or down the steps like like at the funeral of the Queen Mother and the Queen's diamond Wedding.

ETA: Okay, I found my book. It looks like Alexandra took the open topped Rolls to Westminister Abbey on the way to the service. Following the ceremony, she and Angus than rode in the glass carriage from the Abbey to St. James's Palace. There is a picture of her riding in it with Angus in the book Alexandra by Paul James. Its also worth noting that the Queen also hosted and paid for a ball a couple of days before Alexandra's wedding. So she has done this a couple of times in the past and not just for her children.
thank you Zonk
I know that I've seen the picture from her arrival.

I assume you meant Mrs. or Ms. Middleton, as Miss Middleton would either be Kate or her sister, neither of whom have a son I know of.

And I think the poster meant not how they will arrive, transport, but escorted into the cathedral. Like will it be part of the procession, like mother of the brides are sometimes escorted in before the bridesmaids, and will it be done with the ushers we have heard rumors of? I assume we'll see the ushers, but it will be well before the procession. It is pretty likely guess she will come to the church with her son. Pippa will be with the wedding party, and Michael with his daughter.

I don't know about royals,but it is not that uncustomary for there to be an acting mother of the bride or groom. It doesn't infer they were guardian, but a special role in the life of the bride or groom. My maternal grandmother died when my mum was 10. Her dad remarried when she was 21, but my mum married at 19. Oddly enough it was her older sister's mother in law who served as acting mother of the bride. She had stepped up and helped plan the wedding, and been there for my mum. To the day she died, we called her Grannie.

But I assume if my grandfather remarried before my mother married, my Grams would have filled the role. I was born well after my grandfather remarried, so I refer to his second wife as my grandmother. I think it definitely more fitting Camilla ride in the carriage. Not because it would infer an Aunt was his guardian, but because Camilla is Charles' wife. She has been accepted by his sons as a member of the family. If Charles was single, I could see one of the sisters being a part of it, no matter what their closeness may have been. But since Charles is married, no. I am sure his Aunts, and even Uncle with all the issues, will be in attendance. And if rumors are true, the earl's son will be an usher.

I know that, and that's what I said. My post was in response to Mirabel saying that if it rains on April 29th, William and Catherine will leave the Abbey in the Glass Coach. So I said it's the same thing that the Queen and DoE traveled in for her coronation.

We could all do our part by refusing to post or read about Diana. The references to her would then probably die down.

It was the same carriage...
Thanks for clarifying, but your post suggested that the Queen used the same coach, which as we know, she most certainly did not.

You meant the type of (glass) coach, it would seem.
