The bride-to-be is taking a page out of Princess Diana's rebellious royal playbook by ditching the archaic verbiage. William's late mother omitted the word when she married Prince Charles in 1981 -- a controversial move for the young woman.
Sarah Ferguson and Sophie Rhys-Jones failed to follow Diana's lead, though, reverting back to the traditional vows at their ceremonies. Kate and William have decided to use the more "modern" vows from the 1928 Series I Alternative Marriage Rite of the Church of England.
Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, who will preside at the wedding, spoke highly of the lovebirds, telling the Daily Mirror: "I've been very struck by the way in which William and Catherine have approached this great event. They've thought through what they want for themselves, but also what they want to say." Adding, "They have a very simple, very direct picture of what really matters about this event."
