Weddings are filled with necessary decisions, even if you are royalty.
That being said, Prince William and Kate Middleton have already started steering the course for the rest of their lives; choosing to arrive at their wedding by car rather than horse-drawn carriage, considering the possibility of moving into an eco-mansion, and now the couple is deciding whether their A-list guests should donate to charity rather than buying them gifts.
The couple will have no problem starting their marriage financially, so it seems fitting that guests contribute to the charitable causes that Will and Kate have already started to champion.
A spokesman confirmed that the Prince and Middleton have been weighing the option, “It is something they are considering but no decision has been made yet.”
But we are likely to hear what their wishes are soon, as the wedding is fast approaching, taking place on Friday, April 29th, just a few months after announcing their engagement in November. The couple has been noticeably careful to avoid any showiness or ostentatious displays, perhaps in part because they are mindful of the current economic state of many households.
That awareness will hopefully lead the couple toward charitable donations instead of gifts, which has the potential to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more, for needy and worthy causes.
