  • Since their wedding invitations were sent out in February, we’ve been dying to know who Kate and Wills put on their guest list and now all’s been revealed.

    The couple included 250 jointly chosen guests including SIX of their ex-partners and Kate’s parents were allowed to invite 100 guests. We look at exactly who’s made it into the most exclusive wedding of the year!


    David and Victoria Beckham had been previously confirmed as guests to the Royal Wedding. Other celebs at the ceremony will include Madonna’s ex Guy Ritchie, who is Kate’s sixth cousin, comedian Rowan Atkinson and former rugby coach Sir Clive Woodward.


    Kate and Wills have invited their exes including Kate’s old flame Rupert Finch from when she was at St Andrews University and Willem Marx who she apparently dated in sixth form. Wills has invited all his exes – Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, Rose Farquhar and his rumoured first true love, Jecca Craig.

    The Middleton clan

    Guests from Kate’s family will include her sister Pippa, her boyfriend and Kate’s brother, along with 15 other members of the Middleton family.

    Distant family from Italy, Switzerland, France and Australia will fly over to mingle with the Queen. Kate’s shamed millionaire uncle Gary Goldsmith is also on the list. He’s Kate’s mum Carole‘s only brother. Gary was once filmed in posession with cocaine and will attend with his ex-wife and their 10-year-old daughter.

    Kate’s parents have also invited Reading FC chairman John Madejski, who lives near them in Berkshire and Conservative MP Richard Benyon and his wife.

    The Middletons are flying in their friends from Mustique, where they holiday, including the managing directors of The Mustique Company, the receptionist from the villa rentals office, where Kate and Wills once stayed and the owner of a bar on the island.

    Kate’s mates

    Kate’s invited school friends, work colleagues and friends from Marlborough to the Royal Wedding, including jockey Sam Waley-Cohen and his fiancee Annabel Ballin, rower Oliver Hicks and his parents and Lady Laura Marsham.

    Wills’ pals

    William’s best friends from Gloucestershire are invited, as well as mates, Tom and Victoria Inskip, showjumper Harry Meade and his wife Rosie, and Olympic gold medallist Richard Meade and wife Angela.

    Other guests include Wills’ friends from Eton, the couple’s friends from St Andrews and their friends and regulars at Boujis nightclub in London.
