Royal wedding 50 days away as Zara Phillips announces her Edinburgh date
Date Posted: 09/03/11
Prince William and Kate Middleton are just 50 days away from their royal wedding at Westminster Abbey.
The landmark comes as the Prince's cousin Zara Phillips announced that she will wed England rugby player Mike Tindall in Edinburgh on Saturday July 30th.
Wedding planner Sarah Hayward, speaking to the Associated Press, told those planning on joining in the celebrations during weekend breaks in London that the 50-day mark is generally where couples sit back and think about things and "possibly panic", as it is a time when details should be finalised for the big day.
Hugo Vickers, a royal historian, told the news source that while the couple can probably get their hands on anything that they want for their big day, it is the attention to detail which makes a British event stand out from others held elsewhere.
Among those expected to attend the wedding on Friday April 29th are close members of the royal family, prime minister David Cameron and his deputy Nick Clegg, along with a small number of celebrities like Ben Fogle and David and Victoria Beckham.
