Noses Up Everyone! Royal Wedding Guest List Revealed!
Just kidding folks, at least about the noses part. The big day is less than a week away!
We now know which lucky VIPs with invitations to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s nuptials will be dressed in their finest at Westminster Abbey. Nobody could upstage the bride and groom, of course, but who else will cameras from around the world be aiming to catch on April 29?
According to PopEater, the palace has just revealed a “selected” list of royals and celebs who are confirmed as wedding guests. Beloved Brits David and Victoria Beckham and Sir Elton John are no surprise, but keep your eyes open for these other famous faces.
Director Guy Ritchie, singer Joss Stone, Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe and quirky ‘Mr. Bean’ star Rowan Atkinson are confirmed to attend.
Peruvian-born Mario Testino, the photographer (and Princess Diana favorite) responsible for William and Kate’s official engagement photos, will be a guest. So will the chief executive of BAFTA (known by many as the British Oscars — it turns out Prince William became the president of BAFTA last year!).
As for non-British dignitaries, Prince Albert of Monaco will attend with his fiance, Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock, surely taking notes for their upcoming July wedding. They’ll rub elbows with royals from Spain, Greece, Tonga, Swaziland, Denmark, Bahrain, Belgium, Morocco, Norway, Yugoslavia, Abu Dhabi, The Netherlands, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia, among others.
Recording a love song for the couple apparently didn’t carry enough weight for George Michael, he did not make the guest list.
By the way, the couple requests donations to charities in lieu of wedding gifts.
