Kate Middleton, the lucky young lady who will become the next Princess of Wales when she marries Prince William in April, is featured on the cover of the new issue of the British magazine Tatler. Additionally, new details have been released about Kate‘s upcoming nuptials to Prince Wills as we move ever closer to the big day when the couple will say their I Dos.
As far as I know, this is Kate‘s first coverphoto for Tatler magazine … but if history is any indication, it won’t be her last. The late Princess Diana, William‘s mother, was frequently featured on the British magazine thruout her life as princess:
It would appear that much to Tatler‘s glee, they have a new subject to laud on their magazine covers. With only 3 months to go until the royal wedding takes place in London, British officials have released a new set of details about the big day:
Kate Middleton will arrive by car and leave by Royal carriage when she marries Prince William on the morning of April 29. In new details released Wednesday from the prince’s office at the palace, Kate – who turns 29 next Sunday – will wed William, 28, in a service set for 11 a.m. at Westminster Abbey. The service will be followed by a reception given by the groom’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and the day will conclude with a private dinner and dance at the palace for many of the couple’s family and friends. William’s father, Prince Charles, will serve as host. The night before the wedding, the bride-to-be will stay overnight in central London at one of the palaces, either Clarence House or a private address, a royal source tells PEOPLE. According to a news release, MIddleton’s route to the service will take her past some of London’s most famous sites: The Mall (before Buckingham Palace), the Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and Parliament Square. The Dean of Westminster, the Very Rev. Dr. John Hall, will conduct the service, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, will marry the couple, the palace confirms. The Bishop of London Dr. Richard Chartres, a friend of Prince Charles and his sons, will give the address. When they are married, William and Kate will exit to cheering crowds and take what the palace calls “a Processional Route in a carriage procession” to Buckingham Palace.
11AM London time means that my ass will be gettin’ up in the wee, wee hours to bear witness to the royal wedding. OY! Why couldn’t they get married here in LA, we have better weather? In any event, the next 3 months are going to fly by like crazy … April 29 will be here in no time. I expect we’ll be learning more wedding deets as the weeks go by. I know I can’t wait … this wedding is going to be a spectacular spectacle … wee!!
