I am not quite sure what you are getting at. Did Charles not show any emotion during his boys Sandhurst Graduation, attaining their "Wings"? I seem to remember lots of smiles, grins, laughing and typical male backslapping.

Is Charles required to cry? Is any emotion shown at all only attributable to Diana's absence? More importantly how are we to know that the lopsided grin is not Charles remembering some half-baked teenage antic and measuring it against the "seriously adult" ceremony of marriage?

I am confused

It would be fairly uncommon if Charles on raising his sons alone hadn't thought of Diana quite often as the boys have a lot of her. Plus he once fell for the young Lady Diana and the more time goes by, the more thebad things get forgetten but the good memories remain, thus I'm sure Harry is right when he said that not only the brothers but their father as well will think of Diana during the wedding.

Quick update before I head off to bed in regards to coverage of the reception. Richard had told me a few months ago a meeting would be held to arrange media coverage and it seems like this is the result of that meeting. Richard says:

@Kristinazzz9191 You'll get some coverage of the arrivals for the lunchtime reception but it's looking like nothing for the evening.
So that's the latest update. Not sure if they have any surprises in store for us though. So as he had told me originally in November photos will be taken at the quadrangle of the arrivals.

Ah well, dreams are free.
Can anyone tell me if english wedding ceremonies include the kiss the bride? Is it only the royals that don't kiss during the actual ceremony? what about the other royals?

Yes it is usually seen that the bride and groom kiss when they are officially married. Don't all ceremonies besides royal ones include a kiss? And Mary and Frederik kissed, if only lightly before they exited the church in 2004.

In all the British Royal weddings that I have watched in my lifetime, I don't recall the couple kissing during the service. They might do it when they go back to sign the license (where no cameras are) but never in the church. That includes Charles/Diana, Sarah/Andrew, Sophie/Edward. We didnt see anything of the civil ceremony for Charles and Camilla and certainly not during the blessing service.

They usually do a quick kiss on the balcony.

Marg , Kataryn and Sherlock221b
so, yesterday I made a post that seemed to be misinterpretered, and I apologize. Re-reading it today, now I understand why.

What I meant was that during the ceremony, besides the couple , obviously, POW was the one that I would most like to get glimpse of. Because it is his first son getting marriage and the fact that his mother will not be there and so on. When I used the term "watching" (I shouldn't have used the quote marks also, sorry) I didn't meant to as if I was going to patrol his every move and expressions. (it's not my 1st language, sorry again, that one got lost in translation).

I hope I have make myself clear. I didn't and don't doubt the affection the father has for his boys. That's why I brought it up :).

There was no need to apologize - just part of the discussion, that was.
But thank you very much for your kindness!

I second that. Your English is fine, better than many who call it their first language so keep on posting and asking those questions.

I just happened to come across this article in people magazine. It's about the Emmanuels having a back up dress for Diana (never revealed before now). I must admit that I'm glad she wore the original version. I heard that Sarah had an emergency back up dress with a shorter train. Now I'm wondering if Kate has a back up dress too.

Although relatively few, we have now had some lovely greeting messages for Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton from each continent of the world, from Kathmandu, Nepal to St Kitts island to London, England. However, none yet from South America and wondered if there are any followers of the Royal Wedding from those countries who may like to be the first there to 'Send a Greeting'.
Thank you.

A kiss was not protocol in my CofE wedding.

Here in Denmark it does not stand anywhere in the "Book of Rituals" that the priest shall say "You must kiss the bride" to the groom.

So CP Frederik and CPss Mary did it after the book, so to speak

Indeed it is, that is history right there. I pulled an all nighter for Diana's funeral as well.
