April 28, 2011

Prince William and Kate Middelton will marry in just a few short hours and it is all anyone can talk about! It is understandable, the couple is hosting the event of the decade!

The big day is just around the corner, Kate Middleton will soon marry her Prince and an estimated 2 billion people from around the world will watch, while 1900 invited guests will be in the church.

It is being called the wedding of the year, but it is so much more than that. It is the wedding of the decade! I have butterflies for Kate, so I can imagine how the future Princess feels.

Speaking of Princess I bet you are wondering how the titles work and what will change once she officially marries into the Royal family. I know I was curious! Here is how it works:

Once married, Kate will become Her Royal Highness Princess William of Wales, though the media will inaccurately shorten her title to Princess Catherine, a title that is legally reserved for Princesses of birth.

Additionally, upon marriage, royal men receive a title as a gift, and it is expected that William will be named a Duke. According to The Daily Mirror, possible titles include the Duke of Clarence, Duke of Cambridge, Duke of Connaught or the Duke of Sussex. Kate would then become a Duchess. If William doesn’t accept the title, that would leave the couple’s titles as Prince and Princess William.

When Prince Charles becomes King, William would become the Prince of Wales, making Middleton the Princess of Wales, but Charles may choose to pass on the throne directly to William. Regardless, when William does become king, Kate will become Queen Catherine, though she would not be in line to rule if anything happened to her William. Pretty complicated stuff heh?

Well now that is all cleared up, so let’s go on to some wedding details!

Dr. Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, head of the Church of England, will marry William and Kate at approximately 11 am BT. It will be a traditional service, with William’s brother as best man, and of course no TWEETING! Kate may wear the same tiara that Queen Elizabeth wore for her wedding, which would be her something borrowed.

And the Princes’ mother will definitely be on their minds on the big day, Harry said, “I hope she would be very, very proud that the big day has come upon him. We all thought it was never going to happen.”

Following the ceremony a lavish reception (or three!) will begin. The Queen’s reception is being held for 600 guests with champagne, canapés and cake cutting. That will be followed by Prince Charles’ private dinner and dance, just for the bride and groom’s closest family. Then William and Kate are doing things a bit more modern and breaking from tradition – a nightclub will be set up in the palace with a professional DJ, a dance floor, lights, and a cocktail bar.
