The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton

Can you hear the wedding bells? Today is the day of the Royal Wedding of His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales, K.G. with Miss Catherine Middleton on 29th April, 2011, 11.00am at Westminster Abbey. The Royal event will be seen in Australia on ABC1, Channel 7, 9, 10 at 7.30pm EST.

The preparations are being made and excitement is in the air across the world. With up to 2 billion people expected to watch the 6 hour long wedding ceremony, 2000 guests, an estimated cost of $70 million thanks to Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II and more than 10,000 journalists attending, this is sure to be highlight of 2011 weddings.

Whether you love it or hate it, the wedding of the century is on. It seems like every man and his dog are either rejoicing and cashing in on the event or promoting anti-wedding behaviour.
I like to think of this wedding as just to young kids in love - wouldn't it be delightful if they just eloped. Oh, the scandal it would cause. Although it would probably be very unlikely.

Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton have even set up a charitable gift fund for those who very generously may wish to donate to charity to help the couple celebrate their wedding. Aww

The marriage service begins and is relayed by speakers along the route. There will also be big screens in Hyde Park and Trafalgar Square.

The Venue:

For 1,000 years the 11th century Westminster Abbey has been a backdrop to royal weddings, coronations and funerals

The dress:

Okay, you've got me. This is obviously not the REAL image of her dress as its a secret, but Miss Middleton's wedding gown is expected to be modest and will apparently show a little flesh. Ooh la la.

As for the Royal Wedding programme, boy does it go on and on and on.

Even Dominoes pizza have hired extra staff expecting an influx of stay in pizza orders from Royal Wedding watchers as they watch the event on television tonight. Domino’s chief operations officer Andrew Rennie said. “We will make more than 160,000 pizzas...which is more than 14.5 tonnes of mozzarella cheese and more than 12.5 tonnes of pizza sauce. That’s enough to line the streets of London for the royal parade.’’

Hope you can tune in and see the magic happen
