The Royal Wedding

By: Alexsandra Hornett
The Royal Wedding of Prince William of Wales and Catherine “Kate” Middleton is scheduled to take place on April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey. William is the elder son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales, and third eldest grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He is second in the line of succession, behind his father to the thrones of 16 independent states.

The two will be married in the infamous Westminster Abbey Church, which is located almost next to Buckingham Palace. Many royals have also used Westminster Abbey as their wedding venue, the list includes: King Henry I of England, Joan of Acre, King Richard II of England, The Prince Albert, Duke of York, The Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth II), and The Prince Andrew, Duke of York.

The last Royal Wedding was that of the deceased Princess Diana. Who was killed a year later by a fatal car crash in Paris, France. Her funeral was in the Westminster Abbey church.

The world watched as Prince William grew up, and now the world will watch as he ties the knot to Kate. In England, Kate is known as a commoner, or someone who does not belong to the Royal family what-so-ever. The two met when they both attended The University of Saint Andrews, which is one of the most prestigious schools in all of Europe.

The estimated cost of the Royal wedding is about  $20-75 million. Security for the wedding is included in that. There has been talk of violence, disruption and forceful demonstration by negative parties that don’t agree with the Royal Wedding. I doubt that any of that will be a problem for the family that has all of England and the world on the edge of their seats.
