Prince William to wear a uniform to his wedding
Kate Middleton's wedding-day attire has sparked intense speculation -- some since before the royal engagement was announced -- with camera crews staking out a Bruce Oldfield shop in London last month after Kate's mother and sister were seen in one of the British designer's stores.
Less attention has been focused on what, exactly, Prince William will wear on their wedding day. But the options have been narrowed down.
"He will be wearing a military uniform," a spokesman for Clarence House, the official residence of Prince Charles, William's father, told the Toronto Star. "He hasn't decided on which one yet."
That's not "which one" as in which uniform to pull out of the closet -- a new one will be made -- but which branch of the military; the prince has served with the army, navy and air force. His father and his grandfather, Prince Philip, wore their Royal Navy uniforms on their wedding days.
It's likely that William, who is stationed in north Wales and working as a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot, will wear his Royal Air Force uniform. But he probably can't go wrong: Lip readers suggested that during his army graduation ceremony a few years ago Kate remarked to friends, "I love the uniform, it's so so sexy."
