5 Surprising People on the Royal Wedding Guest List

If Madonna would've waited to divorce Guy Ritchie, she could've been his plus one to the Royal Wedding. And Victoria Beckham better be wearing a diaper this Friday, because if her water breaks during the ceremony, that baby isn't going anywhere.

In addition to the much-publicized Royal Wedding Invitations Guy Ritchie, the Beckhams, and Elton John received, there are a few lesser-known surprises on the Royal Wedding Guest List:

Mr. Bean Also known as Sir Rowan Atkinson, the actor is a close friend of Prince Charles. Let's just hope he doesn’t get caught drying his pants in the bathroom.

Gary Goldsmith Known as the "black sheep" of the Middleton clan, Kate Middleton's crazy Uncle Gary was caught offering an undercover reporter drugs and women in 2009. He's also been exposed in the tabloids as a cocaine user. Everyone's got that uncle in their family, though, and a wedding wouldn't be the same without him.

Crown Prince of Bahrain Human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell has criticized the Queen for putting "royalty before human rights" when she decided to allow the Prince of Bahrain to come to the wedding. His Kingdom has violently suppressed protesters in recent months. Why not invite Gaddafi while you're at it? Rumor is, they have, though Gaddafi's name is not on the official list.

Joss Stone It's surprising for no other reason that it's just random, but the English soul singer did perform at the Concert for Diana at Wembley in 2007. Other than that, the official royal wedding guest list doesn't say whether she's a friend of the Royals. Singer Lily Allen expressed her indignation via Twitter: "Well, you can quote me as 'outraged'. Why does bloody Joss Stone get an invite and not moi? I sang at the Diana concert too!"

Kanye West Are we sure he's actually invited and not just planning to show up and get in? While Kanye is not on the official Royal Wedding Guest List, rumor is he's one of the 1,900 people invited. And his reps have declined to comment, so there's a good chance the rumors are true. I always pegged the Queen to be a fan of Yeezy.
