Monarchy Monday, Questions about the Royal wedding

Urban buddha has been asked basic questions about the Royal Wedding. The busy bee's (that would be me, a mac notebook and a diet coke) have been researching the most asked questions. We are not an official Royal watcher blog but we like to fancy ourselves as one. The answers come from; Reuters Royal Watchers at Yahoo and

1. Why is Kate arriving by car instead of the traditional carriage?
No official reason has been given for what appears to be a break with tradition. A number of explanations have been put forward, such as costs, security and modernity. Traveling by car is cheaper and less ostentatious, more in keeping with such austere times.

2. Where can I buy official Royal Souvenirs
Try Amazon, search under Royal Wedding, Royal Collection’s online shop as well as the shops at both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle and Royal Collection shops in Central London.

3. Why aren't the Obamas on the guest list?
While the wedding is clearly a royal occasion, because William is not the heir-to-the-throne it is not a state event. Thus members of royalty from around the world have been invited but not heads of state, so the Obamas have missed out, as have leaders of European countries such as French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

4. What will Kate's title be?
Middleton's title will largely depend on that of her husband. If William has no new title, then the experts at etiquette specialists Debrett's say his wife would probably be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Catherine of Wales, although even that is not certain.

And the most asked question, Who is going to design Kate's wedding dress. The answer; I have no idea, can't seem to find this information on line yet.Even though mum's the word, there are some interesting rumors that point to the late Alexander McQueen's fashion house as having been given the commission. What I can tell you is that I will be waiting on pins and needles ready to report this information to you once I find out.
