I'm sure they are (they grumble about a lot of things), but this shouldn't be put on the Middleton family, or used as "proof" that they are social climbers.

This is a press notice to the media (not public) explaining that there will be a media facility at the wedding.

Imagine the scrum if there wasn't.

Security is going to be tight.

So not your usual family wedding really.

No different. It just gives people something to moan about

It's very exciting to hear there will be a media facility at the wedding- that makes it sound like Pippa is acknowledging the reality that the public is interested in her wedding and working with the media to accommodate that in the best way possible. I hope this means we get some nice pictures of arrivals and departures, and that the reception, etc stay private as that's probably what they'd like.

And moan they will!

I just read this on the DM site- and the comments are filled with people screaming Nobody cares! This isn't news and Pippa isn't royal!


And yet-This was just announced and there are nearly 300 commentsalready! How many will there by by the end of the day?

It's just funny how many people take the time to read and post comments about an event they are so uninterested in.

I've gone from aghast to highly amused, part of the 5 stages of surprise maybe?

We didn't get press releases for which royals would be attending the Christenings of Savannah, Isla, and Mia but for this we do. We don't even know their godparents.

I will get a good chuckle when going forward KP will have to field media questions over engagement rumors of James Middleton and other personal Middleton family milestones. KP will grumble and say "no comment", but really the fault is their own.

I'm now kinda hoping KP releases Pippa's wedding photos through their Twitter. If you're in for half go for whole. It would be funny.

My POV is that KP was simply sick of being asked about it. So they decided to confirm in hopes of getting a little peace.

I guess Pippa had 2 options. Involve the press and have a semblance of order, or try and freeze out the press and have a free for all.

I think there is really no winning for Pippa. If she tries to ignore the press, reporters will moan. Now she's trying to involve the press, people are moaning.

All I care is that George and Charlotte are acting as page boy and bridesmaid respectively. It would be great if we can receive photos of them since critics are always grumbling that William and Kate never releases photo of their children

I've found this on twitter:

According to speculation on the news feed, KP stated that 5 royals will be in attendance.So, if we count the Cambriges and Harry out, who are the other two? Bets on.

When it comes to Pippa and James' wedding day, the only thing I hope for it that the day is exactly as they want it to be. A celebration of their love for each other and their friends and family. They're really all that matter.

The public, the media, the weather and the gossip columnist trying to make a fast buck are all purely externals and do not matter. I'm just hoping for a smooth sailing day and that everything goes happily according to plan (with maybe a few cute mishaps by cute little kids that just happen to make the day).

It's George and Charlotte. 4 Cambridges + Harry =5

KP announced the attendance of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, with Prince George being a pageboy and Princess Charlotte a bridesmaid.

There will be a media facility to help accommodate the intense press interest.

Not sure what people wanted, but this seems like a reasonable accommodation.

It looks like Laura Lopes' and Melissa Percy's weddings - a lot of pics outside and privacy inside.

We already have a preview of what type of photos we are going to get from last Christmas. It's the same church.

William, Kate, George, Charlotte and Harry make five royals, I think.

Did anyone actually find the press release from KP that the press is saying went out? I looked earlier and could not find it.
Was it released and then yanked off the appropriate sites? Was it ever released?
I can find numerous press outlets saying there was a PR from KP - but no actual PR?

The statement send to the press corp.
There apparently was information about media access basically it's a rota with a limited amount of spaces that was being discussed on Twitter by Tim Rook who is a photographer

Not entirely. Christmas was general mass, open to parishioners and their families. Security would be more lax. This is a private wedding.


George no surprise. Little surprised by Charlotte, she will be bareky two. The three year olds at Kate's seemed just old enough.

Wonder if they will all be young. Kate had a range. I don't know about any other friends, but I know her friend Alice has a daughter Rose who is a year or so older than George (mentioned as possible okay date for George).

The people at Church at Christmas didn't take photos during the service. What we saw was walking from the car to the door and then the reverse door to car. That's basically what we see at these society weddings the arrivals and departures.
