Monarchy Mondays, The must have invite of 2011
The Royal guest list has been drawn up and sent out. 1,900 people are invited to the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton on 29th April, 2011, but Sarah, Duchess of York and the Prince’s aunt by marriage, are not one of them!
Although no specific names of invited guests have been released, the invitations are beginning to arrive now. Over half of the guests are said to be family and friends of William and Catherine, with the rest of the guests being made up of international state leaders, politicians and dignitaries also a few celebrity guests, David and Victoria Beckham. Of the almost two thousand guests invited to the wedding ceremony at Westminster Abbey, about 650 of them will be asked to a special wedding reception buffet to be held afterwards at Buckingham Palace. There will also be an evening party that more people will attend, including a dinner and dancing for three hundred close friends of the couple, so invited guests will be interested to read on their invitation to which parts of the day they have been invited.For the rest of Britain and countries all over the world who were not invited, we will have to satisfy ourselves with watching the Royal Wedding on television. The day of the Royal Wedding, Friday 29th April, 2011, has been designated a Bank Holiday in the UK, here in the states, just another Friday day for us Yankees. I will be celebrating with my friend at her house, the wedding will start around 4 am pacific standard time so the bars will not be open at that time.
