Sorry for quoting this now but just wondering did she directly say it? Cause all i can find online is her friend saying she said it to her.

Thankfully I will not see this foolish man ascend a throne in my lifetime.
Isn't that a bit harsh? Because if it would happen, it would only be because William would have done something you disagree with. I think it's a bit far-stretching to subsequently write the man off completely if the so-called 'horror scenario' is to occur. I'd take it as 'an error of judgement on your wedding day is unforgivable.'

On the other hand, your post comes across to me as if you have a very firm mindset on what you want and don't want/find appropriate and unappropriate and I find that admirable. Something I can recognize myself in.

I think we'd rather wait and see before the bullets are fired at the man before his wedding

Generally the only person who gives a 'speech' at a wedding is the officiant. I could see one of the Spencer realtives doing a scipture reading.

And frankly, if one of the Spencer relatives gives a reading...what is the problem with that as long as William and Catherine agree.

I also hope the rumors of wedding performers, whether Elton John or some rock group, are just that- rumors!

I hope the only singers will be the Westminster Choir (who will do a superb job and be entirely appropriate).

Maybe he was asked to give a speech at the reception? I think Elton John was making a joke...hope so anyway. I think these are rumors and nothing more.

This is the Queens opportunity to show that the heirs are lined up for a very long time to come. The wedding is a very major event and the third in line for the throne may very well be born by the time she steps down or dies.
I agree she probably won't get that tiara, was just pointing out she is marrying a Spencer so someone can't say she isn't ( not you specifically)

But I agree with you, and really hope Earl Spencer is only a guest because I believe ( my opinion) that he is a attention hog and would try to make it about him/Diana not Will and Kate

I met earl Spencer once when I went to Althorp to visit Diana's grave. He is not a very friendly fellow by any stretch of the imagination. I also read that after Diana died the Spencers tried to sue to own the copyright of all Princess Diana memorabilia............. and lost. Talk about greedy. I hope he isn't even invited to the Royal wedding at all, but somehow I doubt it.

There is no need to rehash the Diana Chronicles in this thread or discuss the antics of Earl Spencer.

This year I will be married 30th years like Princess Diana might have been. I love sapphires and I am thinking of getting a stone for my engagement ring. So I went the the Natural Sapphire Company website and guess what they are selling - Ms. Middleton's engagement ring custom made to your type of gold and sapphire stone. It is really cool site if you love sapphire's like I do.

A car makes perfect sense.

Catherine will enter the Abbey via a car procession as a commoner marrying the heir heir's.

And after the marriage, both the Duke and Duchess of Whatnot will leave in a carriage.

But since when has a Royal Wedding had the Bride arrive in a car? Could this be because of the attack of Prince Charles and Camilla?

I was looking forward to the glass coach like Diana and Sarah had..........

I think Sophie arrived by car. I believe Princess Alexandria of Kent as well. Maybe Princess Margaret. I am sure someone can confirm or deny that.

Have to remember that it is a new day i.e. the heir heir's, the economy, trying to minimize security risks, etc.

I like this particular suggestions.......They are also keen on making the day a national celebration and a concert in Hyde Park to mark the occasion has been proposed.

Would be interesting to see who they performers would be.
