Who's invited to the royal wedding?
The palace is staying mum on the guest list, but a few details have come out this weekend about who will be invited to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
About 1,900 eight-inch-by-six-inch embossed invitations -- which note that the request is made at the command of the queen -- were sent last week, and the lion's share appears to have gone to friends of the couple. "William and his bride-to-be have been allowed to invite more than 1,000 of their friends, by far the largest proportion of guests who will attend the service and the post-wedding breakfast at Buckingham Palace," the Daily Mail reports.
Not attending is Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of William's uncle Prince Andrew.
There is speculation that soccer star David Beckham -- who was with William, the president of England's Football Association, in December when England lobbied to host the 2018 World Cup -- may be invited. His wife, Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer Victoria, said last week that she was sending a selection of her spring/summer dresses to the royal bride-to-be.
Reportedly not on the list are the Obamas, though the blow is thought to have been softened with the invitation for a state visit to Britain in May.
