So she's packed in her acting job, they are visibly besotted, it's the queen and Prince philip's 70th anniversary on Monday......perfect day for an announcement and a summer wedding after Kate has given birth?

I thought things had changed. Charles didn’t marry there though- I thought that was the reason, because it meant they had to open it to the public for weddings.

Oh I think it's that St George's chapel is perfectly suitable and enabled for Christian wedding ceremonies, but Charles wanted to have his civil service in Windsor Castle itself. But that would have meant making the Castle available as a wedding venue for any old pleb, so they abandoned that plan grin

The blessing was in the chapel though, wasn't it? If C&C had been able to have a church wedding, they'd have done the whole thing there.

I see, yes that sounds right.

I do hope it is in Windsor —maybe a local—

I have read that Windsor Castle is closed for a private event on 20th April ... not sure if it is for the wedding as that won't give Kate much time!

If the due date is actually earlier, it would, though. To me 'spring' means March, April or May. They could go for early May and have Kate and the new baby there with ease.

I also predict that the government are currently saying 'no bank holiday' so that when Brexit turns into even more of a total balls up, they can throw us all a bone, say they're 'bowing to the will of the people' hmm and get some favourable coverage from the Express and Mail.
