No exactly date about the wedding has been announced yet, but they said it will be in spring or summer 2011. A photocall and an interview will be made later on today.

Oh yes, I totally forgot about the Wessex children!

I suspect most of the major royal families will be represented at the wedding. What will be interesting to note is if the monarchs themselves come, or if the Crown Prince couple, or even more junior members are sent to the wedding.

What do you think? William is a future King, could he marry in a closed ceremony??

He could do anything he wants...but as future King, he will probably bow to the wishes of the masses (and our dear forums) and be married publicly. Just probably not as massive as his parents.

Most certainly representation from all of Europe's ruling families will be in attendance.

And I don't believe theres any doubt that this wedding will be televised. That is a non negotiable I'm affraid.

I think only those major royals who are close to Prince Charles (or love a good party) would attend themselves. For instance I think the entire royal family of Norway seem to be close the Windors and would attend, maybe not Martha-Louise.

It is certainly a possibility, but I am not sure how close William is to Sophie. I think Camilla will play an active role in introducing Kate to royal life, and I suspect she probably has been speaking to Kate for some time on this.

I suspect Harry and possibly Peter would be supporters, not James Middleton. Similarly, I do not think any of Zara, Bea or Eugenie will be bridesmaids.

Well here are my musings:

The wedding will be on a scale grand enough for a future king, yet fitting enough during a time of austerity - the Queen had a wonderful wedding during a time of much tougher austerity. Security will be the main cost and so a location in London close to wherever the reception is held would be more likely. Also, I suspect the wedding will be on a Saturday so as to cause less disruption although traditionally Wednesday is more usual.
I think that Westminster Abbey is the most obvious place for the wedding to take place, but if the scale can be managed properly it could very well be The Guards Chapel. St Paul's Cathedral is too large and due to it's location further from Buckingham Palace (where I assume the reception will be held) would require more security along the route and so more costly.

Harry will be best man, I think thats set in stone!

I am rooting for Westminster Abbey and I have no doubt since it will be in London, it will be a wedding with a proper scale for somebody who will be King one day.

Why not Martha-Louise, she is a royal?

I do hope you're right. I sincerely hope that Prince William will take all the lessons learned from his mother's experience and do everything he can do ease Catherine's transition.

Wonder who will design the dress or if it's going to be a tiara event like Victoria's?
