In case you’ve been out of the loop, the Royal Wedding is Friday, April 29th and is set to be the biggest media event of the decade. Prince William and Kate Middleton will tie the knot at Westminster Abbey and just about everyone in the free world is counting down the days. What should we expect to see? Read on…
The Royal Wedding is sure to be a gala like no other. Carefully organized with no detail left undone, the Royal Wedding will definitely be the hottest topic of conversation atleast until Memorial Day! The Telegraph explains what we can expect:
The Lord Chamberlain’s office organises the royal wedding. It’s very military, totally seamless and everyone in Westminster Abbey – each of the 1,900 guests – has a numbered card in various different colours. If a gamekeeper arrives early he won’t be put at the front, and if a lady-in-waiting arrives late she won’t be put at the back. If you’re looking at the altar, you have the Royal family on the right-hand side and the Middleton family on the left.
After the wedding, pictures will be taken by Hugo Burnand in the Throne Room who also photographed Charles and Camilla’s wedding. Burnand must work fast while the guests make their way to the Palace. He only has half an hour to snap pictures of the main group and the family groups!
Afterward at 1:25 p.m., Prince William and Kate Middleton will come out for what will be the kiss heard ’round the world–the balcony kiss! Then after the reception, the happy couple will return to Clarence House to get ready for the evening activities.
