...."is the combination of the car and a buffet rather than a banquet".
In fact it's a "reception" more than a private breakfast. So it's not more modest. For me it means that several head of states are coming (maybe the Obama) and they cant be excluded from the breakfast (which is ordinary for the family and friends). So I understand that QII is obliged to "entertain" them and offer a 'larger" thing than a breakfast .. A reception !

Prince William Kate Middleton wedding - sausage rolls and a taxi? Come off it | Mail Online

To be honest once this low-key wedding is done and dusted I doubt you'll see anything of them anyway once they retire to Wales. I am more looking forward to the Monaco Royals to show them how it should be done on 1 July.

The Monaco Princely Family is going to show the British Royals how its done?

And this statement is based on the fact that there will be a buffet and car instead of a breakfast and carriages? Not that any wedding is a competition (it should reflect the wishes and the personalities of the bride and groom). Personally I think the Windsors have had a lot more practice over the years they will do just fine.

Agreed, I find it an amazing remark and I do not mean that in a positive way. And, if it were a competition, it is a bogus comparison because Monaco is not a kingdom.

I don't even see what the fuss about the breakfast/banquet/buffet is! We wouldn't get see any of it anyway regardless of what they had for their breakfast/banquet/buffet/feast/whatever.

And I'm sure when they say buffet in the announced plans it isn't going to be like a buffet you throw together for a 6 year old's birthday party with little pineapple & cheese cubes on a stick & that sort of thing!

Seriously I'm amazed at how much fuss people seem to have over some of the details, everything I've heard so far has seemed fine to me, pretty much perfect & what I expected in fact.

I can't explain it, but I am disappointed by the Car. Does that mean she will have a motorcycle escort? Or the Royal Horseguards?
I need more info on the dress. Anything new on the choice of designer yet? Please oh please may it be a marzipan cupcake with lots of sprinkles..... :-D

At this point, I dont know if there is anything to be done for those disappointed that Kate will arrive by car. Its still going to be a procession, you will be able to see her and its not like she is arriving by a Mini Cooper. Its the same car that the Queen has used in the past.

I think a car doesn't live up to your expectations of the classic British Fairytale Royal Wedding, where a glass coach and all is used.

I think the British are in a nasty split sometimes - keeping traditions alive while also having to move with the times.

And I agree with you.

I also think that the BRF is trying to be mindful of the current economic times that we live in. Considering that when this engagement was announced and we heard a lot of people complaining about the cost to the British public (and its a legitimate claim) and now they are acting within (gasp) a budget...they are getting raked over the coals.

Catherine will be a member of the BRF..there will be plenty of opportunities for her to ride in a carriage.

Seriously...mode of transportation...people are gauging the success of the wedding on "horse power"!

What about the music...what about William's attire and the rest of the royal family? Should there be a military presence since William is an active RAF officer?

The Monaco wedding won't go through half of the scrutiny that the British one. As said before, They can't please everybody, every little detail that comes out, gets criticized. Can't imagine how much pressure the people who are planning this ceremony are having to deal with, jezz. Wouldn't like to be standing on their shoes, for sure!

I would imagine that he wears his RAF uniform and that is blue, according to me.

Monaco as a Principality, hasn't had a Royal wedding in over 50 years, nor have they had a Princess since Princess Grace's death in 1982, so of course it will be a monumental occasion and cause for celebration for it's citizens. As Monaco also has a rich economy, you won't hear the citizens complaining about every euro being spent on the festivities or security, so no doubt there will no expense spared on either.

On one hand I see complaints regarding the expense of Kate and William's wedding in these economic times, when the citizens are only paying for security. On the other, I am seeing complaints regarding the "low key" theme of the wedding. And now Monaco is going to SHOW the British Royal family how a Royal wedding is done?

Monaco is a pretty Principality, however no matter how much glamour and glitz is showered on it for this wedding, it will never compare to a true British Royal wedding...even a low key one.

Should Charles wear the uniform of an RAF Air Chief Marshal or Royal Navy Admiral? Besides Catherine wearing a tiara, should the other royal wives wear theirs tiaras including the Queen?

I'm all for seeing a Royal procession of Mini Coopers!
