The Prince and his bride have said they want a "People's Wedding," and, apparently, they really meant it. The couple will say their vows in front of hundreds of royalty and celebrities
, of course, but they'll also be joined by villagers from Kate Middleton's home community of Bucklebury in Berkshire. The Middleton family's postman, their local grocer and his wife, their neighborhood pub's landlord, and their regular butcher all received gold-embossed invitations
. Though they have all known the Middleton family, and Kate, for years, none of them expected to be invited to the Royal Wedding. We suspect they'll all be able to make it, however.
Previously, the royal couple also announced that they will be reserving 100 tickets to their wedding for the general public. The 100 lucky Brits will be chosen at random by a lottery. The People's Wedding, indeed.
