It seems one cant turn to a newspaper or magazine at the moment without being blasted with news of the upcoming Royal Wedding! How exciting! I for one am looking forward to what’s promising to be a National day of Celebration across the UK.
Price William of Wales was born on the 21st June 1982 and is of course the son of Charles, Prince of Wales and the late Princess Diana of Wales. The princess is lovingly remembered as ‘The People Princess’ after her sad death in Paris on the 31st August 1997.
Prince William is second in line to the throne after his father and is the second eldest Grandson of Queen Elizabeth the second, the longest running Monarch on the throne.
He marries his Fiancé Catherine Elizabeth Middleton on the 29th April at Westminster Abbey. There is some speculation as to the designer of the Wedding Dress, although nothing has yet been confirmed, names such as Alexander Mqueen and Jasper Conran are in circulation. Dame Vivienne Westwood confirmed at London’s Fashion Week she wouldn’t be designing the dress, and that if she were too she would have to wait for Kate to catch up with fashion a little bit.
The couple met at St Andrews University back in 2001 where they were both studying at the time. Miss Middleton gained much press coverage once the relationship went public.
The office of the Prince of Wales at Clarence House London officially announced the engagement on November 16th 2010, with the location details announced but only a week later.
The day is set to see record numbers of visitors coming to London to be a part of this special day, which has been marked as a public holiday across the UK. If you and your friends are thinking of heading to London for the Big day we have perfect wedding packages for you at Generator Hostel London and we even have souvenir T-shirts for all you Royalists!
