Like many weddings, when it comes to the guest lists the parents of the soon-to-be-wed quickly step in, sending out a slew of invitations to fulfill a lifetime of social obligations.

Being royal is no exception.

Charles and Camilla have invited 250 people to the April 29 wedding with the Queen faxing invites to 50 of her cronies. Kate's mum and dad, who are ponying up at least a small part of the wedding cost, were allowed to invite 100 people. Prince Philip's involvement in selecting onlookers has not been mentioned.

William and Kate were allowed to invite 250 guests.

The royal after party

Hello! magazine is reporting that after the foreign dignitaries have gone to bed, William and Kate will turn one of the palace's state rooms into a private club -- complete with DJs and a cocktail bar.

William and Harry are reportedly old hands at turning royal residences into clubbers retreats. The two are said by the magazine to have turned Prince Charles' Highgrove estate, in Gloucestershire, into Club H, a venue where they could party away from the prying eyes of the press.

The Queen's invisible umbrellas

As Kate and William stepped out into the blustery Lancashire weather, Monday, they hid from the pouring rain behind Kate rather large, black umbrella. Unfortunately, while they stayed dry, the umbrella also hid them from the crowds that had gathered.

The Queen would have never made such a mistake. HRH regularly travels with see-through Fulton birdcage umbrellas, with rims specially designed to match her outfits, reports the Daily Mail.

Maybe she's saving handing out part of her collection to the couple as a wedding present.
