The event of the year will be taking place at Westminster Abbey on 29 April 2011. This is the union between Prince William of Wales and Kate Middleton. Prince William is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and he is second in line to the succession. Prince William and Kate Middleton both studied at the University of St. Andrews. It was there where they first met. The got engaged last year on October 20, 2010 and by November 16 they announced it.
A quick look at the morning's papers. Many of them, including the Sun and the Daily Mirror, are using the official wedding shot of William and Kate, taken by Mario Testino. The Times and the Daily Mail have picked images of the bride-to-be waving at the crowds outside her hotel last night. Ever the insurgent, the Independent has a montage of celebratory pictures on its front page, but adds at the bottom: "Not interested in the royal wedding? Turn now to page 6."
We'll hope you'll stick with us all day for updates on the crowds in central London, the street parties throughout the country and the marriage ceremony itself, not to mention the guests, the carriages, the Royal Family, the dress and the anticipated kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
