You have received your invite, haven’t you?
St James’s Palace was delighted to announce Friday the latest increment to what will be the greatest wedding de nos jours: the happy couple now have a specific venue and date in mind. What’s that you ask? That’s not exactly news. As if that stopped anyone when it came to the Royal Family.

Westminster Abbey emerged as the clear favorite for the location as Kate Middleton was snapped leaving the church earlier this week after taking a private tour (perhaps she just likes touring churches). The couple are supposedly keen on a March date but the British weather might step in because a summer month should be more reliable when it comes to the, “please God, don’t let it rain on our wedding day” front, which is a mantra all engaged British couples say at sunset.

“They’re not going to be rushed and want to take things at their own pace,” said a Palace spokesman. “They’re very important decisions to make and like any couple they want to make sure they’ve properly considered all of the factors.”

And in other updates, the Daily Mail learns that Middleton is to give up her job as a website designer and photographer for the family business Party Pieces. It had been believed she was planning to be a working princess but the Mail concludes that, “the couple will try to have a child as soon as possible.” For those that are carrying on with their careers, Prime Minister David Cameron has confirmed that the wedding day will be decreed a bank holiday so the country can enjoy a “day of national celebration.” And even if it’s on a Saturday, the workforce will be given the Friday or Monday off. NewsFeed has always been of the belief that there aren’t enough Royal weddings.
