Britain is putting the crowning touches to the preparations for Friday's wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton as the world gets set to tune
in for the biggest royal occasion for 30 years. Two billion people are expected to watch live on television and the Internet to see the eldest son of
Princess Diana and his commoner bride tie the knot after a romance that began at university in Scotland eight years ago. Rain is set to fall on the
big day but that is unlikely to dissuade hundreds of thousands of revellers from cramming into London, with the first die-hard royal fans camping out
in front of the Abbey since Monday. Around 1,900 guests including foreign royals, politicians and celebrities including Elton John, David and Victoria
Beckham and Rowan Atkinson have accepted invitations to attend the exclusive ceremony. British police have launched a massive security operation
involving some 5,000 officers, including armed protection specialists, and warned that they will "robustly" deal with any protests during the
wedding. Some 650 guests have been invited to the reception at the palace, while the hottest ticket in town will be a dinner-dance hosted by Prince
Charles for a lucky 300 or so people. Thousands of street parties are planned, including in Middleton's home village of Bucklebury in southeast
England, while the British government has declared a public holiday and pubs are allowed to stay open late.
Well ATS'ers only two days left, and the question is; Are you looking forward to it?
Plus your opinion about the wedding.
