London: Prince William and Kate Middleton are likely to ask the public to donate money to charity instead of buying them wedding presents.

The noble scheme could involve online and postal donations and raise millions for their favourite causes.

Although they will accept gifts from close members of the Royal family, the couple has asked that other guests donate.

“William and Kate have everything they need so they have decided that it might be nice to ask for charitable donations instead of presents. They have said this is their wish and the logistics are being looked into,” a daily quoted a source as saying.
