Cheers, are you staying up all night?

I guess it's top secret!! I don't think anyone even knows who the designer is.

I was searching around on Google about the dress and no one knows a thing, it seems. Usually they let out a few hints but I can find nothing this time.

I love royal weddings. I watched Diana's and Sarah's but there's something special about this one. Not only will William be king one day, but I actually think this marriage might last! That's special!!!

I also think William and Kate are more "normal" than past Royals. They have known each other for a long time, are best friends, and they appear to have behaved like normal young people when they were growing up.

She who must be obeyed — one's wife or female partner.

My mum is coming over to my sisters place and we are packing up the kitchen dishes for her (she has LOTS) while we watch the Royal Wedding.

Hi, You are correct about ceiling fans - we had one too - but they are normally purely to dissipate cooking smells - such as fish or garlic type foods., although a portable cooling fan is useful for fresh air. Regards don

Yes Thats all true --- but while the Royal couple have been courting they have broke up twice already
But I also hope that this Marriage works ---- one thing for sure Kate cant have any second thoughts in this wedding ---- like a normal couple could, ---- not with a third of the WORLDS population watching, --- thats 2 BILLION people, Ohhhh I would get a little nervous to say the least if I were William.
