They didn't say anything about that.

They also said that William was going to throw a street party.

Street party? Sounds like a security and logistics nightmare. But very modern and happening.

Maybe ET has it wrong and he's not hosting one personally, but there are going to be street parties all over England apparently in honour of the wedding. I'm sure more details will be forthcoming if William is hosting one.

I would imagine there will be street parties all over Britain on the big day! Just an excuse for a booze up really. LOL.

Writer of a book on William and Harry says she has heard from a palace insider that Fergie will not be invited. It'll be interesting to see if this comes true.

Some of us are old enough to remember the Queen's Silver Jubilee - was that the last official street party in the UK? I was a student at Lancaster!

I'm sure there was a street party during the Golden Jubilee a few years ago, and I bet there will be another blowout when the Diamond Jubilee rolls around. And why not a good party? I think the world needs a good celebration or two.

And the UK will have it's belly full of them with the wedding next year, and the Jubilee and Olympics in 2012.
