I thought that people won't supposed to bring electronic devices to the Abbey.

Nah, you can bring in mobile phones but they're supposed to be turned off while in the Abbey church.

Who would do that? I can't imagine someone taking a call at a white trash wedding, much less the wedding of the century.Unfortunately, it's pretty common. Not so much having a conversation, but having the phone on and having it ring in the middle of the ceremony. And I'm sure this (http://madhattery.royalroundup.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/wedding-2010-0619-jordan-rania2.jpg) picture doesn't instill a lot of confidence even in fellow royals. Yeah, this wasn't taken during CP Victoria's wedding itself, but during the time when all royals in attendance were making an appearance on a balcony, which made it still inappropriate.

Lady Bella Marigold-McCrea checking in!! :D

As for signal blocking technology being used during the Wedding, that just makes sense in this day and age. Sadly, something far more tragic could happen w/the push of a cell phone button. Say, while William and Catherine are waving to the crowd after coming out of the Abbey.

Of course I realize that Security will be checking and checking and *checking* the people who are camped out in that area right now to secure their spot. OTOH, there's also no such thing as being too careful for an Event like this.

Not to mention, don't we all know someone who can't pry themselves away from the Crackberry while they're DRIVING, let alone at a wedding or a funeral or a baptism or some other solemn event where you'd THINK they could put it down and shut it off. Someone would leave their phone on and you know the person getting the call would have a Lady Gaga ringtone or some such.

Better than the Rue des Merdes de Chiens, n'est-ce pas? :)

Les noms de rues les plus insolites de France (http://www.planet.fr/france-les-noms-de-rues-plus-insolites.61559.1607.html?overview=1)

These are awesome!

My favorite (http://www.planet.fr/france-les-noms-de-rues-plus-insolites.61559.1607.html?page=0,16) :cat:

Rue des Fesses Fanées is pretty special too. Shoulda kept the name.

The Recessional for Kate and William to leave the Abbey is William Walton's Crown Imperial.

followed by Widor's toccata

and Pomp & Circumstance :lol:

Ok now I'm really excited. I'll probably be crying as soon as she sets off up the aisle. I LOVE I was Glad and I think its inclusion speaks volumes for Kate's soon to be status. For anyone thinking this might be some scaled back, less pompy and circumstancy wedding, these music choices leave very little doubt we are going to see quite the opposite. :cheer:

AND just announced on the news. Kate will NOT obey in the vows tomorrow. You go girl :respec:

You can view a PDF of the programme here. (http://cde.cerosmedia.com/1G4db6de7f30814652.cde) You can print it off but can't save it. At least I can't find a way to do it. Gorgeous picture of William and Kate I haven't seen before.

Wow!!! :biggrinbo If I remember correctly, "I Was Glad" was HMQ's processional at her Coronation!

And really, how can you not do a Royal Wedding without some Crown Imperial and P-n-C!?!!? :cheer2:

A tribute to Wales with "Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer"....and performed at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales. :(

AND "Jerusalem"! Wow, that should get the crowd going! :)

How do you print it?? I tried one page, and got a tiny image with tons of black eating my toner, and I tried to email myself a page from the clip tool, and it still hasn't arrived.

I think William really did request not getting a Dukedom for a wedding gift from the Queen. Qtherwise, it wouldn't say "HRH Prince William of Wales, K.G."... it would have his new title. Right?

Not on the program as it's before the wedding, no? Plus as this is a private life event as opposed to public, wouldn't they make those announcements separately?

Although there's been little talk of it lately - it sounds like Kate will be Princess, which is better than Duchess anyway, so perhaps they will gradually add more titles over time.

Charles' own website has thankfully posted a pdf of the program that can be saved, printed, etc - http://www.princeofwales.gov.uk/content/documents/RWOP_V2.pdf

She could be both (Camilla is, for example--she IS Princess of Wales, they just don't use that because it would make the rabid Diana cultists mad) and just go by "Princess William". In William's case, if he were a "normal" title nobility he could use one of his father's lesser titles so long as Charles is alive (which was normal back in the day for titled families--an Earl's son could be a..Count? I don't remember the descending order...until the father died and HE became Earl, etc.) Since they're royalty, Grandma could give William high-ranking titles of his own. Instead he seems to be waiting--when HM dies, his father will become King and unless something really weird happens William and Catherine will then be Prince and Princess of Wales, and probably pick up some other titles as well.

WSJ had a 'cute' thing yesterday--tracking down the woman in German who is LAST in line for the British throne (4,000-somethingth.) The lowest-order descedant of Sophia of Hannover. She WILL move up a few places if the Commonwealth nations ratify a change to strict primogeniture rather than male primogeniture, but she's not overly concerned about it. ;)
