Prince William & Kate Middleton: Choose Family for Royal Party
They're busy getting ready for their Royal Wedding, and Prince William and Kate Middleton have announced their wedding party.
The soon-to-be-spouses selected members of their families for the esteemed honor of standing up at the affair, with Prince Harry serving as Best Man and Philippa Middleton as Maid of Honor.
William and Kate are still hammering out the guest list, though, and First Lady Michelle Obama says she hasn't been invited. "Marriage is a personal private thing, they should invite who they want to invite, and if I get invited, I'll go." Meanwhile, Ellen DeGeneres is definitely hoping for a Royal Invite. She has traced her lineage to reveal that she's 15th cousins with Miss Middleton.
Prince William and Kate Middleton got a glimpse of their future while watching another royal pair say their "I do's". The couple was in attendance for the wedding of Louise Stourton and Harry Aubrey-Fletcher held in Aldborough, North Yorkshire (January 8).
During the course of the festivities, Miss Middleton spent time chatting with Will's brother, Prince Harry, while other attendees included the lovely Princess Beatrice. Also nabbed for work duties, Prince William partook in the ceremony as one of the ushers - as he and his fellow seaters attended a traditional pre-wedding lunch earlier in the day.
Their wedding will be the affair of the year, and Prince William and Kate Middleton are still tweaking the details of their special day. According to a report, the blessed occasion will take place at 11am on April 29th at Westminster Abbey, and will be followed by a reception given by Queen Elizabeth. Later that evening, Prince Charles will host a private dinner and dance at the palace for a select group of family and friends. The night prior to the big day, Kate will stay at one of the Royal palaces. The next morning she will be taken by car on a route through London past some of the city's most famous buildings before she arrives at the Abbey.
While most of the British Royal Family enjoys the pomp and circumstance of their lineage, Prince William and his soon-to-be-wife Kate Middleton will take a less opulent approach. According to a report, Will and
Kate do not plan on hiring a chef, butler, valet, or other servants at their North Wales home. A Royal insider confirmed that they have "no domestic staff and there are no plans for that to change."
Another source said "Kate was spotted shopping in [the grocery store] Waitrose the other day. That would tell you all you need to know about how they lead their life."
