London: Dame Helen Mirren ‘hopes’ that Prince William and Kate Middleton would opt for a second "private" wedding ceremony away from the glare of the global spotlight.

The British royal will wed his bride-to-be at London``s Westminster Abbey on Friday in a lavish ceremony which will be broadcast all over the world.

Mirren admitted she feels sorry for the young royal couple and hopes they exchange vows behind close doors in a second, secret ceremony.

"I know this sounds ridiculous, but I think people getting married should be a private thing. I hope they will also do an absolutely private wedding just for them,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling Britain`s Mail.
