Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

Great news! First Jessica Simpson and now Prince William. I hope he finds more success in his marriage than his mother did.

Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

I'm ok with that, my sights are on Prince Hot Ginge. Kate seemed to have sucked all the hotness out of Wills.

Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

I was hoping to go to London June 11th to see Journey/Foreigner/Styx - I hope they don't pick that weekend to get married - flights and hotels will be impossible!!!! Although - might be fun to see a Royal wedding as well!!!

Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

I do as well wish them the best of luck. I can't say that I would really wish to be in his situation and it must be hard sometimes.

Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

What happens at a royal wedding anyway (the last one was so long ago)? Does everyone get invited? Will they have jousting and a petting zoo?
