Royal Wedding Web Site Offers Sneak Peek at Kate Middleton and Prince William’s Style
Kate Middleton and her team have been keeping mum on what the soon-to-be princess will wear down the aisle April 29, but one thing’s for sure: When the news breaks, it will break here.
St James’s Palace (the headquarters of the staffs of Princes William and Harry) has just launched the Royal Wedding Web site at www.officialroyalwedding2011.org.
Emblazoned with the Mario Testino–shot engagement photos of Prince William and Middleton, the site will bring together all the information from those really in the know—Clarence House’s Twitter and Flickr, the Royal Channel on YouTube, and the British Monarchy’s Facebook page—to those who could make a competitive sport of wedding watching.
For people concerned chiefly with the fashion of the occasion (ahem!), bookmark now: The site promises that “on the day itself the site will be the first place to view information such as the details of Miss Middleton’s wedding dress.”

Can’t wait? For now, chic tidbits include posts on the official Royal Wedding china, which is decorated with doves, white ribbons, and hearts, and includes a layer of hand-finished 22kt gold.
“Each piece bears the couple’s entwined initials in gold and silver surmounted by the coronet of Prince William and the wedding date,” the site reads—and yes, it will be available for purchase at the Royal Collection’s online shop.
