Clarence House Reveals More Details of Royal Wedding

Reception and party at Buckingham Palace slated to cap off big day.

LONDON — The design of Kate Middleton’s hotly anticipated wedding dress may still be under wraps, but Clarence House revealed a few more details of how Prince William and Middleton’s wedding day will unfold on April 29.

The wedding service will begin at 11 a.m. at Westminster Abbey, and Middleton will travel to the service by car, Clarence House said.

The Dean of Westminster will conduct the service, while the Archbishop of Canterbury will marry the couple and the Bishop of London will give the address.

The married couple will then return to Buckingham Palace in a carriage, along a processional route that will take in central London locations including The Mall, Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and Parliament Square.

The Queen will then give a reception for the couple at Buckingham Palace, attended by guests from the congregation “who represent the couple’s official and private lives,” Clarence House said.

Later, the Prince of Wales will give a private dinner followed by dancing at Buckingham Palace, for the couple and their close friends and family.
