^I've never ever heard that before, and I doubt its true. Its just too complicated for them to pick a date that matches dates with leaders of the world, and then on top of it make sure ti matched with the birth date of someone Kate was supposedly named after. Its just a major coincidence.

Yes, the Anglican Church recognises saints. There are probably some differences with the Roman Catholic Church, but the simple answer is yes.

Some information here

The Greek Orthodox and Russian Orthodox Church both venerate saints. As do Episcopalians and Presbyterians.

I wouldn't take much the US press has to say about Kate or her upcoming nuptials rather seriously. Seeing as she's not Catholic, I would doubt she was named specifically for a Catholic saint. Most of the time, when a child is named after a saint, they are named after the saint whose feast day is their birthday. Kate's birthday isn't April 29th.

BTW, April 29th is the saint day for Catherine of Siena in the Episcopalian church, in case anyone was interested.

No, she isn't with her parents.

"Sir Stephen Lamport, who is now Receiver General of the Abbey and responsible for organising major events there, was at Kate’s side.

He was private secretary and treasurer to Prince Charles until 2002. Kate was also accompanied by William’s private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton and his personal secretary Helen Asprey.

It is also the first time she had been seen with her personal protection officers – part of the security detail now assigned to her as the fiancée of a member of the Royal Family."

Some day Prince William will be governor of The Church of England. Saint Catherine of Siena is indeed a saint in the Church of England who was born on April 29th as Teacher of The Faith, 1380.

The Church of England commemorates many of the same saints as those in the Roman Catholic calendar of saints, mostly on the same days.

Calendar of saints (Church of England) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Prime Minister has now said the wedding day shall be a national holiday.

I have a question have they ever not done an official photoshoot following the engagement I know it's not supposed to be done for a few more weeks but has any royal ever skipped it? I'm just worried they may not do it and I'm so looking forward to some professional and official photos of the couple.

That is assuming that they even get invited. They probably will but we don't know.

I wonder if we'll get to see the reception and their first dance like Victoria & Daniel?

Traditionally we haven't seen anything from inside the palace with British Royal Weddings. They show the carriages arriving at the entrance to the palace and an hour or so later show them on the balcony and the next day release the formal staged photos. After the wedding breakfast they sometimes show the couple leaving for their honeymoon.

I think that is nicer and allows the couple some private celebration with close family and friends on their day whereas the public reception means that couple can't ever relax as they are on show all day.

I remember with Diana and Charles wedding people were finding it strange just how few people actually attended the wedding breakfast and some of them were people who didn't go to St Paul's while the vast majority of the people in the church didn't go to the breakfast. Diana, for instance, entered St Pauls at 11.20 a.m. and the balcony appearance was at 1.30. The wedding breakfast, for 120 guests, followed. More a lunch than anything else.

I am not even sure if they have a dance together as I have never seen any reference to one with a British royal wedding - probably because their weddings tend to be late morning, early afternoon weddings rather than night weddings.

Thanks for that explanation Iluvbertie, I never fully understood why they didn't show the first dance but you've got a point and I agree some private time with close friends and family is always nice. I suppose then the only BRF wedding we saw pics from the reception was Autumn and Peter. But obviously that was due to the deal with Hello magazine and due to the fact it was a proper reception and not a "breakfast" or "lunch" as usually done.

Buti donÄt think youi can't invite all people who attend the Service in Church to the Wedding breakfast. At Charles and Diana's Wedding i read there where around 3000 guests at St. Paulls. I can ubnderstand that the want no coverage from the Wedding breakfast. But they could at last release the speeches and the courses of the Dinner and a number of photos.

I do think that they are entitled to some private time. They will release the formal photos and that should be enough for people in my opinion. The continual demand for photos of them doing ordinary things is what encourages the paparazzi and the problems they create. If people were only satisfied with the official photos then the royals wouldn't have to threaten legal suits to stop photos being taken.

Speaking of official photos do the British royals typically do an official pre-wedding photoshoot kinda like Daniel and Victoria did? I just find it weird honestly that all the other european royals have either shown it on tv or released a photo or two later on from the reception.(ex: cutting the cake)

All I can remember seeing are the formal group photos and the ones with the parents and just the couple being released. I have no memory of anything else - nothing from the reception. For the first time, at Charles and Camilla's wedding some people gave some comments from the Queen's speech but that isn't usual.

Hm interesting. For Victoria and Daniel they showed the full reception so that includes speeches, cutting of the cake and first dance and then they cut off.I'm pretty sure that's how most european royals do it. I don't think Grace Kelly's reception was shown(I'm probably wrong if so please correct me) but I know for a fact photos were released. As for the official photos I meant the photoshoot usually done prior to the wedding. The ones Victoria and Daniel did were used for the official souvenirs and Charles and Diana's photoshoot was the famous photos of both of them in blue shirts and Charles had his arms around Diana. I hope William and Kate do this I hope it's not something they choose to omit though I dunno whether or not they have a choice in doing that photoshoot.

eta: for clarification these are the photoshoots
Victoria and Daniel http://johanhammerby.blogg.se/images...t_94376103.jpg
Charles and Diana http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-..._1951918_n.jpg

Also do not in any way mean to be a party pooper but is anyone else but me scared... you know for the future?....I guess since the BRF don't have the greatest track records in marriages I really hope all goes well this time for Wills and Kate since I'm rooting them on always have been!

At Vicotira and Daniel's Wedding the most of the recption was shown. At the Wedding of Philippe and Mathilde, Haakon and Mette-Marit and Felipe and Letizia at last the speeches where shown. But the dutch's are the strictest. There it ended after the balcony appearance. Only one photo from the reception was released but neither the speeches and the course of the Dinner. But i except it the same for William and Kate as the Windsors have always done so in the past and the same was done for the 60th birthday of Prince Charles.
