The hours are slipping into minutes until the start of the “wedding of the millennium,” as The Royal Wedding has been called. What burning questions will the nuptials finally answer? Speculation in the media pinpoints certain themes again and again. Let’s prepare ourselves as spectators with a handy primer to keep track of some answers!
What does the dress look like and who made it? It is incredible in this era ofthe Daily Mirrorand Wikileaks that any information about Kate’s gown has remained a total mystery. Experts anticipate a contemporary designwith modern, sleek lines.
What will be the substance of their vows? We have already heard that like Diana, Kate and William together have decided to drop the traditional word “obey.”We are told to expect a blend of traditional concepts such as “to have and to hold” infused with more modern language.
Will there be an exchange of rings during the ceremony? William has clearly stated tha the will not wear a ring. Royal tradition is for the reigning monarch to have the ring made from the royal (but dwindling) supply of Welsh gold. The Queen did give William a gift of such gold, but he will not wear a ring.
What will become of Kate’s bouquet? It has been tradition since the early part of the century to lay a royal bride’s bouquet on the tomb of the unknown soldier in Westminster Abbey. This seems a much more noble use for a royal bouquet than as a dried hanging wreath.
Who gets seated next to whom? Immediately following the nuptials, the Queen will host an “intimate” (300 guests) “breakfast” (actually mid-afternoon). This tradition must involve careful consideration by a semi-professional team of seating experts to get just the right mix and avoid conflict.
