Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s official wedding invitations are in business. 1,900 lucky guests around the globe have received this 10 by 6 inch white card that has the insignia of Will’s grandmom, Queen Elizabeth. It’s a simple invite, with gilt edging, with the Lord Chamberlain (as commanded by the Queen) asking guests to arrive on April 29 at 11 am at Westminster Abbey. They’ve been asked to dress in “Uniform, Morning Coat or Lounge Suit.”
Suffice to say we haven’t got an invite, which is well enough because we don’t know what the hell we’d wear. A lounge suit? That sounds like something Hugh Hefner puts on. We’re in good company though, because joining us in watching the imminent wedding on T.V will be Michelle Obama who hasn’t got an invite either. And the strict guest list applies to the Royal Family as well. Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has not been invited, but her daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have been, and will attend. Ouch!
It’s all gravy though, because Fergie’s rep has stated, “She will not be attending. She never expected to be invited.” That’s what happens when you get caught offering access to Prince Andrew for money in an undercover News of the World sting operation.
