Royal Wedding: No Wedding Ring for Prince William

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Engagements, Weddings, Style, Rumors

Prince William, Kate Middleton engagement pictureThe royal wedding will be filled with traditional elements, but there's at least one the new couple won't be observing. Even after he ties the knot with Kate Middleton, Prince William won’t be wearing a wedding ring. According to a rep, “It is the couple’s wishes to have one ring. It will be a Welsh gold ring that will be from Prince William to Kate.” A gold Welsh ring sounds like an appropriate token of affection to the future Princess of Wales.

The nugget of gold has been in the family vault, given to William by his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Engagements, Weddings, Parties, Rumors

Kate Middleton

While future husband Prince William was celebrating his “stag party,” almost-a-princess Kate Middleton was enjoying a relaxed “hen night” hosted by her Maid of Honor and sister Pippa.

Everyone’s been pretty mum on the details, but we’re told Middleton enjoyed a quiet celebration that’s so secretive, we can’t even get a good handle on the guest list. It’s suspected that Princess Beatrice, friend Alicia Fox-Pitt and Rose Astor were among the attendees.

Pippa managed to trick the media by booking four different locales to host the event, and no one’s revealing just where the bash went down. To get all the details we do have on the royal wedding, check out all our posts on the big event.

Royal Wedding: Three Receptions for Royal Couple

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Engagements, Weddings, Parties, Rumors

Prince William, Kate MiddletonPrince William bride Kate Middleton aren’t your ordinary engaged couple, so they can’t be expected to celebrate their royal wedding in a typical way. Instead of the usual wedding reception, the couple will enjoy three separate after parties when they exchange vows on April 29.

First, the newlyweds will be whisked away (via carriage) to Buckingham Palace to enjoy a luncheon with 600 of their wedding guests. It will take 19 of the palace’s 775 rooms to hold all the invitees to the lavish affair. Buckingham is one of London's most famed attractions, and the sometime home to Queen Elizabeth.

Proud papa Prince Charles will host a dinner party, scheduled later in the day, for a cozy group of 300. And the after after after party will be an intimate affair attended by 100 people, a party so exclusive we don’t even know where it’s being held.

Royal Wedding: Get Inside the Princely Bachelor Party

Prince William, Prince HarrySo, how do you entertain a guy who will one day rule an entire country? We’ll never know. Prince William’s bachelor party, hosted by Best Man and younger brother Prince Harry, remains a rather hush-hush affair.

An official spokesman had little enough to share, saying only that the King-to-be “has enjoyed his stag [party] and it was in the U.K.” British people call bachelor parties stag parties, by the way.

We’ll have to rely on rumor to learn more. Reports say that the Prince and about 20 close friends enjoyed a weekend affair that included water activities (waterskiing, motorboat-racing), a night out at the pubs (bars, to you Americans) and then they winded down at a lavish country manor.

Not a bad way to say good-bye to being single. We're following all the details of the royal wedding, so keep checking back to stay up-to-date on all the official events and unofficial gossip.
