Full royal wedding rehearsal:
Wednesday evening Prince William and Kate Middleton had a full wedding rehearsal at Westminster Abbey, where flowers have already started to arrive.
Select members of the wedding party were present and the couple had an audience with the Dean of the abbey.
“Last night, the couple attended a full and final wedding rehearsal at Westminster Abbey along with Prince Harry and Miss Middleton’s parents,” reports the Telegraph.”Their black police Range Rover, with a motorcade of people carriers and police outriders, swept into Dean’s Yard at 7.30pm for a run-through. The couple left the abbey just after 9pm.”
Have Will and Kate written their own vows?
Kate drove from her family home to Clarence House early Wednesday morning and in the back of her car photographers could make out a sheet of paper with some writing on it. Much of the writing was obscured, but they could make out the words ‘With so much love within our hearts.’ This is leading people to speculate the couple could be writing their own vows.
An early morning for London military personnel:
A 4 a.m. wedding rehearsal was attended yesterday morning, by over 1,000 soldiers, sailors and airmen who before gathered for a 2 a.m. briefing at Wellington Barracks near Buckingham Palace.
The Telegraph reports the gathering dispersed just before 5 a.m. so they could trek the “ceremonial route” from the palace to Westminster Abbey.
“The procession later made its way back along Whitehall, Horse Guards Parade and The Mall, all of which were closed to traffic,” reports the Telegraph.
EOnline reports that Kate had a look-a-like to stand in for her:”A “pretty brunette” emerged from the exact car that will carry Kate on Friday, prompting cheers from the crowd before they realized it was just her stand in,” said the report.
