The honeymoon will be a gigant hide and seek with the papparazzis.

The big question is: Do we get to see a kiss like we saw on June 19(ok, 7 live and 1 bonus in the weddingbook:))
Which wedding are you referring to?

Edit: I see you are referring to the Swedish wedding. I think this one will be a bit different but I expect a balcony kiss, to be honest.

It seemed that Edward and Sophie were determined not to have a public kiss after their wedding, likely to stop the comparisons between their wedding and the previous royal wedding ceremonies. I wonder if William and Kate will make the same call and skip the kiss on the balcony.

Oh, what a pitty. A friday. To bad, for me that is. I work on Fridays so i guess i will watch the event on youtube later that night then.
I think there is a good possibility that a DVD of the wedding will be made.

I just checked the dresses and I love the MONIQUE LHUILLIER´s one! Very princess and very Kate ! THe designer will be britain, of course; what a pitty for Valentino, Channel, etc, etc...No opportunity for them of designing the most expected wedding gown of the world!

Chagall I have to agree with you that this is the best choice for Catherine.Yopu have excellent taste!
However wed do not know whether Catherine will go to Chanel or European couture for this gown-
I think the Monique Lhuillier one is quite definitive and expresses Catherine beautifully.

Hi! Chiming in here from the States also. :)

I could certainly take the day off, but I'm afraid it will simply be about getting up to watch TV at 4am. That's what I had to do for Charles and Diana. So I hope for an evening wedding!

Glad it's not a Saturday anyway. Spent almost the whole day glued to the computer watching Swedish TV online when Victoria married, and consequently didn't get my cleaning done! LOL!

BTW, I vote for Suzanne Neville for the gown. :)

Can't really make out who it is, but your right it doesn't look like her.

Mayday goes to the Monday after the 1st of May.


I am surprised by the choice of wedding date, not by the location unfortunately.

Please note that all posts relating to the Obamas have been deleted.

It would be nice if we could speak of the President and the First Lady of the United States in general terms without the thread being thrown off track with posts regarding vacation time, ulterior motives of the Obamas and the cost of such a trip for the American tax payer. But alas we cannot.

Please note that future posts will be deleted as well.

Those people are not Catherine's parents. Love her white coat.

The reports in America say the couple wanted a Spring wedding and pick the feast day of Saint Catherine who Ms. Middleton is named for.

I would like to know if other Christian denominations honor the Saints like Catholics do?

Just heard on a British TV channel that the wedding of Prince William and Ms.
Middleton will take place on 29th April 2011.

I don't think this is honouring Saint Catherine. I think this just happens to coincide with the choice of date.
I doubt very much they looked up Saint Catherine and purposely picked this date.

Where does it say she is named after St Catherine?

You know 29th April also happends to be the same date as Adolf Hitler's macabre marriage to Eva Braun as the Third Reich collapsed?

That is my preference, too. Or gown #1. Either of them would look stunning on her. Her very narrow hips give her the ability to wear those fuller skirt styles, whereas a narrow, sheath-like style would accentuate that feature.

BTW, that site has some lovely photos of Kate I don't remember having seen before. A number of them show her beautiful smile. I wonder how many other happy, smiling photos of her the media has that they never showed because it didn't fit the story they wanted to tell.

Exactly, neither of her parents were there.
As for guests, naturally heads of state will be invited. They always are.
April 29th was also the date of Jon Bon Jovi's successful marriage.

Even if it is a total coincidence, it is a rather charming one.

Reading about the Feast of St. Catherine, it seems that she is the patron of unmarried women, students, philosophers, craftsmen who use wheels (e.g., potters), lacemakers, and milliners.

Without reading too much into this, it is amusing to see that this young couple, who met as students and who will have lots of pottery, lace and hats created for their big day (!!), have chosen this particular day to celebrate their wedding.
