Yeah, I prefer the Royce to the carriage. I've been looking at photos of the car, and the windows are huge and sit sort of low. Which means we will be able to get quite the view of Kate.

I liked the flowers that Sarah wore when entering the church, but I hope Kate wears a tiara.

I liked the bit with Sarah's entrance with the flowers and the exit with the tiara. It was a nice touch. Sarah was a beautiful bride but than most brides are on their wedding day. I am sure Kate will be lovely as well.

Either way, I think we will see something shining that day.

Sarah was a beautiful bride. And yep, Kate will be too. I can't wait to see what other little touches William and Kate will add to the ceremony.

There are rumors that Paul McCartney has been approached to sing at the reception.

I know it's just rumours but I would LOVE if Paul McCartney turned up at the wedding, even just as a guest not singing or anything, adore him.

Does anyone think Kate's choice of car instead of carriage has something to do with her trying to appear modest?? I hope she's not relaying a message like that.

I am confused. Why would being modest be an issue? And a problem.

What I mean is I wonder if maybe the whole car thing has something to do with her trying to act like she doesn't care about all the extravagances when indeed she does. Nothing's wrong with being modest, I just wonder if her modesty is a front. Hope I explained it right.

I don't think it is a question of modesty what is interesting to me is the combination of the car and a buffet rather than a banquet. To me rather then being modest it feels as if the message is more "modern" and the appeal of "being modern" or something to that degree.

I find it refreshing if Ms. Middleton is modest. Diana, Princess of Wales raised her sons as royalty in touch with the common man. Maybe Catherine's modest ways remind Prince William of his mother.

I think it is cool going to your wedding in a car and after marrying a prince and becoming royal you leave in a beautiful carriage fit for a princess!

I wonder if Ms Middleton will wear a tiara going in Westminster Abbey. I think she might wear flowers in and a tiara leaving.

You did.

Poor Kate but I guess she will have to get used to that being a public figure.

You can't please everyone. If she goes all out she faces the potential of being accused of being ostentatious when millions in her country are dealing with financial setbacks. If she tries to scale back, people question her motives and if she is being sincere. You can't win.

Kate will have plenty of time to ride around in a beautiful carriage -- she will be HM the Queen one day, after all.

Possibly a random thought, but my Nan thinks the choice of car over the Glass Coach means that her dress will either be very full or made of easily crushed material. With the lack of space in the GC she may be able to lay her dress out more in the car. I imagine she'll not want to compare to Diana in the crushed/wrinkled dress stakes.

I was wondering the same thing.

I have also been wondering whether rather than wearing a traditional, formal tiara, she might wear a less formal Celtic-inspired tiara-type head ornament, maybe featuring lilies and ivy. Depends on her dress, of course, but I thought it might be a possibility.

It is being reported, if this guy accurate, ALL royals including William and QE will take cars to wedding and carriages out- so it's prob not Catherine trying to say she is non- royal but maybe more because it non state event or eye on low key in these economic times IMO

I think it is okay if Catherine goes to the church in a car. I do not think it is any big deal.
