Royal Wedding Guest List Released

Here ye, here ye, you are cordially invited to the royal wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William. Okay maybe not. But the royal wedding list was released and the guest list is pretty impressive.

So who got a royal invite? Princes Diana’s good friend Sir Elton John and husband David. David and Victoria Beckham were also invited. Madonna's ex-hubby, Guy Ritchie, will be attending. Joss Stone and British television presenter Ben Fogle and Mr. Bean star Rowan Atkinson are also guests.

The Queen, Prince Charles, Prince Harry and leading royals will be seated on the front row of Westminister Abbey. The Middleton family will be on the front row of the church.

Clarence yard stated that Guy is "a friend of Prince William and Miss Middleton" while Joss is likely to have become friendly with the couple after performing at the Concert for Diana at Wembley in 2007 and at City Salute in 2008.

The list also shows all the royals, dignitaries and politicians who are going. Shamed Sarah Ferguson was noticeably absent from the list, but her two daughters Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice and her ex-husband Prince Andrew are attending.

Also included are 15 members of Kate's family - including her uncle Gary Goldsmith, who was reportedly reconsidered on the list after he allegedly boasted about his connections to the royal family - and Australian Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe, the King of Swaziland, the King of Tonga, Prince Constantine of Greece, The Queen of Spain and Sheikh Ahmad Hmoud Al-Sabah of Kuwait.

The Spencers - who are the prince's family from his late mother Princess Diana's side - will sit with foreign royals directly behind and diplomats and friends of William will sit off to the sides.

The royal wedding will air in at 2:30AM here on the West Coast, so make sure to tune into Hollyscoop for a live blogging, photos and much more!
