Is it true?I wonder then why people were far more excited 30 years ago when it was Prince Charles's and Diana's wedding
You wonder why people were excited in 1982? Monarchy was more popular and no reality TV.

A Royal Prenup for Prince William and Kate Middleton?

Does Prince Will need a pre-nup? This fluff piece asks that question - but also gives an estimate of his worth - a mere $45 million (don't know what that is in pounds these days).

I would imagine that a pre-nup would be very very unlikely.

Royal wedding: William and Kate will be new Posh and Becks - Telegraph

Royal wedding: William and Kate will be new Posh and Becks

Prince William and Kate Middleton have sparked a ''new generation revival'' of the monarchy and could end up replacing celebrities like the Beckhams, according to one royal historian.

He also has land, lots of it but that is beside the point. A pre-nup would prevent any children of the marriage leaving the country without the consent of he crown.

You only have to look at Christina Onasis' daughter to see what happens when you get brought up outside the country of your inheritance.

IMO a pre-nup would be neccessary for a marriage like this - there is more then just a 'normal' marriage involved but I bet that's pretty standard to the RF (nowadays) it is in someways a business....as unromantic as it sounds I imagine Kate knew that was part of the deal....I Also believe that Kate and William won't have any cause to enforce it

Yes, but it was not a part of the ceremony. They were on their way out of the church. That´s a big difference, IMO.

I never said it was part of the ceremony, I said they kissed in the church. Which they did.

the wedding

Read in one of the Hello mags that P.Harry plans to embarrass P.William in his speech.
Frankly just the presence of their uncle "champagne charlie" with his latest but undoubtedly not last paramour should be embarrassment enough.
If he were a woman he would called by a very unflattering word in the English dictionary.

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.

I can help on this; no Church of England Wedding ceremony includes the words ' You may now kiss the bride'. You do often see films though that implies [wrongly] that this is the case.

After the couple has been pronounced man and wife, the wedding party move off [usually to an area of the church known as 'The Vestry',although not all Church of England Churches, especially the very ancient ones include a large enough Vestry] where the Bride and Groom sign the Register [not the Licence] and those acting as witnesses to the wedding sign the Register there and then. At a Royal Wedding, there may well be time for a very quick kiss, but I assume that it is more likely to be in the nature of a very quick kiss on the cheek - there cannot be the risk of smudging make-up etc [TV cameras will be focused on the couple as they then walk down the aisle again etc]. Time in the Vestry is at a premium - in the case of The Duchess of York, her flower headband had to be removed quickly and her veil rearranged to reveal the tiara. With all that going on, there would not have been much time for more than a 'quick peck of a kiss'.

Once out of the Vestry, the first really important gesture that takes place is the First Curtesy, where the new Royal Bride makes her curtesy to the Queen.

As Zonk says, the first kiss the public see is On the Balcony. IIRC, Prince Charles seemed to hesitate for a brief moment, which I think was purely because he was not sure of the protocol of doing so; by the time the Yorks married, the balcony kiss of Sarah and Andrew seemed much more joyous and natural.

William could technically just sign the Register as 'William' - In England, anyone can choose how they sign their signature. His full name and title will already be set out in Register that he and Catherine sign [as will her full name]

Hope this helps,

Alex

Ok- so will his name be set out as William M-W? Or Prince William of Wales? Or...something else? :)

Regarding the kiss...

I would expect that any husband who wants to kiss his (new) wife, in church or not, doesn't need anyone's permission! What's the A of C going to do- say, "I now unpronounce you husband and wife" ? I go on the record predicting that W will kiss K.

Prince William Arthur Phillip Louis of Wales presumably. They may tag a title on if it's been given. Catherine Elizabeth Middleton will be above where Catherine signs I imagine.

And I was just making clear that it isn´t a part of the ceremony, at least not in Denmark. I don´t know if it´s a part of the ceremony in the UK.

Prince William's surname is Windsor [not Mountbatten-Windsor]

My authority for this is the Queen, shortly after her accession, declared that the issue of her marriage and their descedants IN THE MALE LINE should bear the name of Windsor.

Hope this helps [it's my work, so I should know it!!]
