Royal Wedding Hoopla

By now, everyone in the planet knows April 29 is the date Prince William will wed Kate Middleton in what those in the know calls the "wedding of the century".

Intense public scrutiny has been the main staple of the royal romance, but when Prince William proposed to Kate in October while holidaying in Kenya, and popping the question with her late mother Princess Diana's engagement ring, the world only got wind of it a month later when Buckingham Palace announced the engagement.

The wedding itself will be a national bank holiday in Britain, with the wedding service taking place at the grand Westminster Abbey at 11 a.m. It is a Friday, chosen by the couple because it is the Feast Day of St. Catherine, Kate's namesake.

As to the wedding costs, the royals stemmed the speculation that taxpayers will shoulder the bill, saying that the royal family and the Middletons will cover those, thank you. The cost includes reception and the honeymoon, but sources say security and post-wedding cleanups are public services that will be picked up by ordinary Brits.

Post-wedding scenarios? Short of a divorce, that is? Life will resume for everyone, with Kate Middleton probably on to a lot of trips and charity work representing the royal family. And of course, popping out male heirs to the throne.  Busy, busy, busy! 

Congratulations, by the way!
