middletons contribute six-figure sum to royal wedding

Although traditionally the royal family takes care of the bill for royal weddings, Kate Middleton's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, will be making a contribution to their daughter's wedding to Prince William. Vanity Fair is reporting that the couple will give an unspecified six-figure amount to help off set the substantial costs of the elaborate April 29th affair. Apparently, it was very important to them that, as the bride's parents, they help cover expenses, and Prince William was gracious enough to accept their offer.
