I'm concerned that with the current budget cuts, there won't be a royal wedding next year. 2012 is out, so maybe 2013?

If so, I would bang my head against the wall out of impatience!

Actually, even with budget cuts, I can see a wedding in 2011. I think with watching how much these two have valued their privacy over the years, that they would actually prefer having a smaller low-keyed wedding. When Charles married, he was heir to the throne so it had to be a grand affair but with William, they will be able to get away with a more cost efficient wedding.

With 2011 having this wedding to celebrate along with the 90th birthday of the DoE, it would give the public something to smile about. I think any upcoming royal wedding is going to be a bright spot in a rather gloomy economic atmosphere. Give the people something to talk about and cheer about.

The budget cuts would allow William to have the low key wedding I think he craves at St Georges rather than in London and the hoopla. I also get the feeling that the royals are going more low key in the future.

Well, if these two do not announce an engagement in 2011 or 2013, I would think there's something very wrong in the relationship.

That would be nice if they did a low key wedding, however I missed the Charles and Diana wedding due to not being born yet, so I wouldn't mind sitting up seeing a royal wedding.

Well you'll still get a wedding, just a Sophie&Edward sized one perhaps?
I honestly can't imagine seeing a wedding the same size as Charles and Diana's until Beatrice gets married.

Not sure I follow. Why would Beatrice have a wedding the same size of Charles and Diana and not William. William is, after all the heir's heir and Beatrice is #5.

Unless something drastic happens, I imagine Beatrice and/or Eugenie would have a wedding similar to Peter Phillips IMO.

Well I don't think William and Harry are the type of people to want a big wedding and I think Beatrice is the type to want a big wedding. She might not get it, but IMO she would want it.

I think it would be a mistake to have a small wedding for William. William IS 2nd in line to the throne, and is extremely important to the Monarchy's survival. Public opinion has favored him over Charles to succeed the Queen, and although that won't happen, it sends a clear message of his is populaity and the dersire for a more modern King. Andrew had just as much pomp and circumstance as Charles on his wedding day, and as the future King, so should William. The Monarchy does these events very well, and the whole world will be watching. I just don't see William getting married in a small initimate ceromony considering the frenzy of interest that surrounds his personal life with Kate. IMO of course.

And when Andrew and Charles got married the country wasn't in the middle of a financial crisis.
If the UK saw that The Royal Family is ignoring the country and splashing out on a lavish wedding, William is not going to be looked upon in a favourable light.

Mind you, I was 12 at the time, but wasn't the UK in financial straits around the time of Charles & Diana's wedding? Maybe not as much as now, but I seem to remember reports about lifting the spirits, etc. Any which way, I think it would be nice if William's wedding were a bit more auspicious than Peter Philips' just on general principle of being closer to the throne as others have commented.

I think it'll be more than Peter Phillips, but I don't think it'll be the size of Charles and Diana's. 1, because of money reasons but 2, mainly because I don't think William would want something like that.

Around the early 80's, yes the world economies were in a recession. Not nearly as bad as now, but things were a bit difficult.

As long as it is on TV I don't care what size it is...I don't like Royal weddings where you only see them on the steps of the church ...

Here's Richard Palmer from the Express tweets on his thoughts on Wills & Kate:

Quote:
The rumour mill has gone into overdrive after those weekend photos of William and Kate. But August? When Buck House is open to tourists?
Quote:
Everyone is talking up those happy, relaxed pictures because we all want the story to move on. Was it them telling the world, we're ready?
Quote:
My guess is no. I think it was more of a case of William's bodyguards not wanting to ruin the wedding and saying, give them what they want.
About the last part, does anyone really think that was the case? I doubt it because those two have been to so many weddings, and all of a sudden they give the media what they want? And I thought William goes around saying he does not like to be told what to do, or something to that extent.

I don't think it was the case of W&K giving the press what they want, I think it was them being them.
Why is this man tweeting about William and Kate does he not have another better to do?

Lumutqueen ... Who pays for Royal weddings, Police, ect.? Is it the Public....(TAX Payer) If they did want to have a lavish wedding could they pay for all it all themselves and not bother the public. Since we know they have loads of money or would this still be considered offensive?
