Smart move on William's part. The idea of him displacing Charles needs to be nipped in the bud, and it was necessary for him to let his views be know. It is, indeed, not a popularity contest.

Good for William sticking up for his Dad. I don't think people give Prince Charles enough credit. I think he'd make a great King and like the Queen he'll put his duty & country first above all else.

I am surprised about that too! I guess Uncle Andy would feel really dissapointed with Wills if his daugthers were not included...Actually, the list will be composed of WIndsors+Spencers+Middletons+Bowles(?)+friends on both sides...Seems to be a lot of people.... About children, there are no direct nephews and nieces on none side...

There is nothing in this article that is any different to what has been said in the past - 'aides' at the palace saying William doesn't want to do it.

It isn't directly from William and until it is the issue will continue to rise, as it has done for the last 20 or so years.

The 'aides' aren't even named - so more unsubstantiated reports about William says, thinks etc.

“Kate will be pursuing her own projects in time, but the plan is very much for her to be introduced to the role and shown the ropes, and not plunging in unprepared.”

I'm so glad they are giving Kate the time to learn the ropes first!

BTW, this is another "argument" for "letting nature take its course" as far as succession goes. There is no immediate rush for either Kate or William. Let them prepare, but also live their own young lives.

Andrew Lloyd Weber, Elton Jhon...too many famous people! The marriage could become a kind of spectacle of big names and loose its character of a wedding party (a cozy and warm reunion with the people you care and care for you). This could intimidate Kate, becauses she`s not yet totally familiar with these things...Letizia (of Spain) was so nervous in her wedding that looked like a statue ... and part of the charm was lost...

If Charles were to be skipped - that would really weaken the monarchy as it would make it seem so easily manipulated. I think it would throw more folks into the Republican side. If the royal family and government doesn't honor the "rules" for who is monarch then it makes it seem less "ordained."

We know William will not be with them this year at Christmas we even have heard he may skip many more Christmas' with the BRF but we weren't sure till now what Kate will be doing....till now. Also Kate wants Pippa to organize her official engagements...hookay this is getting weirder by the minute but I do hope the bit about Kate and Centrepoint is true!

Speaking of weddings, I came across this quaint little snippet of information the other day:

In 1923 the BBC considered broadcasting the marriage of Lady Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon (later, the Queen Mother) to the Duke of York (the future George VI). Courtiers refused on the grounds that the service might be heard 'by men in public houses' with their caps still on.

This was 87 years ago. I wonder if, in 87 years hence, people will be equally amused/bemused by what the current crop of courtiers believe is important.

Can a family member be hired as LIW? And I also hope that the story about Kate volunteering at Centrepoint is true. That would be really nice for her & the people that will get to work with her.

One of the novel questions which arise when a member of the middle class marries the Prince of Wales' elder son.

I can't think of a reason why a close relative could not be a lady-in-waiting. I am fairly sure more distant relatives have been in the past. I think the issue here arises from the word "lady". Traditionally ladies-in-waiting have been noblewomen, appointed, not hired. It was an honour, not something for which the lady would be paid. If Pippa were to be so appointed, and paid a salary, it would change the nature of the role.

Any experts out there to give us a definitive answer?

Lady Sarah McCorquadale acted as LiW to her sister, Diana Princess of Wales.

Appear yes - kiss well that could depend on how superstitious they are - two kisses on that balcony and two divorces - not a good track record.

Well according to Charles, they've been practising a long time. I thing they should show us what they've learned.

I would like that bride's dress won't be purely white "virginal" colour,it will seem anyway funny and traditional,it would be great if would decide mixed colour dress (pale rose or blue colouring mixed with beige or white)

Do you mean something like Gwen Stefani wore on her wedding day?

I don't think that is appropriate at all for a royal wedding, makes it too modern. Just my opinion of course.
