It was not the ideal week for the royal family as it gears up for the big wedding on April 29.
Royal Wedding Diary
For royal wedding guest list, read guess list.
Palace officials refuse to say exactly who has been invited to the big occasion on April 29, but that has not prevented royal pundits from filling their alloted column inches with creative conjecture, and then another army of commentators pitching in with what they think about those believed to be attending.
from Fan Fare:
I may be in Berlin covering the film festival, but I'm keeping half an eye on the press coverage of the royal wedding. Needless to say there is an awful lot of it, and some of the stories appear to be as much fiction as fact, if not more so. The tone is almost entirely positive, with commentators glowing about the young royal couple, her style, his grace, how good it all is for the country, economy, morale, soul -- oh you get the gist.
