Update: Fergie not invited to the royal wedding
If you thought speculation about Chelsea Clinton's wedding was bad . . .brace yourself. Now that the invitations to the April 29 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton are out, the rumor mill is on hyperdrive and will be for the next two months.
Royal officials won't confirm who's on the guest list, but that hasn't stopped pundits from merrily announcing which A-listers they think made the cut. What we know for sure: There will be 1,900 guests at the Westminster ceremony, culled to 600 for the lunchtime reception hosted by the queen and 300 at the exclusive dinner-dance that evening hosted by Prince Charles. Most of the guests are family and friends, plus a few foreign royals, government officials, and reps from William's charity work.
The only exclusion of note: Sarah Ferguson, who blew her last chance at a seat when she was taped last year trying to sell access to ex-husband Prince Andrew. Her office released a statement saying she "was never expecting to attend.''
