Seeing as Harry is organizing a "survivor's" breakfast for 6am or so, I imagine HM is being wise enough to leave them all to their own debauc.. err discretion at this "knees up".

Once the Queen isn't in residence don't certain protocols drop?

I really hope that Catherine will walk down the Isle at Westminster Abbey to the chillling song of Zadok the Priest.

That's how long it takes to ring a full peal. It's (usually) 5,040 changes on 8 bells. That means each bell rings 5,040 times and the order in which the bells sound is never repeated. The mathematics of it is fascinating.
(sorry, that should be 7 bells to be precise. The eighth bell is the tenor bell which usually rings in 8th place at the end of each line, so technically isn't part of the changes. Although some peals are rung with the tenor "in", it sounds more musical with the tenor "behind")

Contrary to what the writer of the article says, the ringers do have to memorise the changes. This is done by remembering a pattern expressed as a line. It is very complicated. I learned to ring church bells and did so regularly for a few years, but found it very hard to learn the patterns. It seems to come more easily to some than to others. I never rang a full peal although I did manage a quarter-peal on a few occasions.

How I learnt about peels etc was in Dorothy L. Sayers novel The Nine Tailors about Lord Peter Wimsey who gets stuck in a fenland village. He ends up being asked to help with some bell ringing and there is a good explanation of the process in this book.

Royal Wedding and Royal Behaviors

Dear Prince William and Dear Lady Kate

May the bliss enlight Your marriage as among the happyest and lifelovelong and prosperous.

Please remember the words of Your ancestor Noble Prince Albert Von Saxe Coburg Gotha : Who shall take care of the people if this is not the heirs of the Kingdom.

Thus allow me for You to thank the Almighty for Your position ; to suggest You both and Your whole family ; very humbly and very obediently that You offer for Your wedding and to thank Your people
that You insure that all poorest families in the kingdom have a house and a fridge full of goods.
And possibly as all the vip and wealthy people of the Kingdom to make sure the poorest family near them do not lack food and means to educate kids.

Mille graces.

Sylvia de Sawyn

I can't remember where I had seen it discussed here, but I noticed that some members were wondering why the Spencers were sitting with the Middletons rather than the BRF as they are family of the groom. If you look at the way the seating is arranged at both "lanterns" in the church, all the royals are on one side, all the non-royals are on the other. Meaning, behind the BRF will be all the other invited royals. The Spencers aren't royals, so they aren't going to be seated there. They'll be seated with Catherine's also non-royal family.

Some suggested it was a slight of some kind, but I don't see it.

I don't mind where the Spencers sit, they aren't royal so I don't see why they should be with the BRF. They are sitting opposite the royals & I think that is a rather goo thing.

Your weather link -BTW, what do you mean by "D day"?- doesn't work (for me).

I don't know if Zadok is customarily used at British weddings, as it is a British coronation anthem. I know Frederik and Mary used it, but I kind of doubt the BR's would.

The D in the phrase D-Day actually stands for "Day" It's a funny little military convention but doesn't necessarily reference the famous wartime "D-Day." It just indicates a day for which much planning is done.

Zadok - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The name "Zadok" means "righteous", and it is also pronounced as "tzedek"...
