Prince William ‘to wed Kate Middleton next August’
London: Britain’s Prince William will marry his long-term girlfriend Kate Middleton at London`s Westminster Abbey next August, according to sources.
According to sources, royal aides made ‘discreet overtures’ to senior managers at the Abbey, one of London`s most famous landmarks, to hold a wedding there on the second weekend in August next year.
Friends of the couple said a wedding next August would be ‘entirely possible,’ reports a news daily.
The timing would allow Middleton to get acquainted with her role as princess before the Queen`s diamond jubilee celebrations and the London Olympics in 2012, the friends said.
Westminster Abbey would be an emotionally symbolic place for Prince William`s wedding - his mother Princess Diana`s funeral service took place there in 1997.
