A roundup of royal wedding news and speculation from the British press:
Will Prince William and his new bride follow in the footsteps of his parents and honeymoon in the U.K.? The royal pair are considering the idea of honeymooning on Britain’s Isles of Scilly, off the Cornwall coast, according to Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper.
“In respect of the recent austerity measures, William and Catherine have been discussing the possibility of holidaying somewhere in Britain during their honeymoon,” the tabloid quotes a royal insider as saying. “Several options are being considered which will chime with this public mood.”
It won’t be William’s first visit to the area – he vacationed there with his family in 1989. Charles and Diana spent their honeymoon in 1981 on an estate in Hampshire and on the Queen’s estate in Balmoral, Scotland.
Where do you think the royal pair should spend their honeymoon?
Other items in today's royal roundup:
-- Even if Wills and Kate forgo a luxury getaway, there will still be plenty of traveling for them to do in the future. Their first trip as a married couple will take the pair across the pond to Canada, according to the Sun newspaper. The prince and princess will tour our neighbor to the north for two weeks in July. Queen Elizabeth serves as the sovereign of Canada and is very popular there; her visit in July 2010 drew adorning crowds.
-- Revelers may want to put street-party plans on hold: Recent legislation compels partygoers to hire expensive traffic management companies to block through roads, according to the Daily Mail newspaper. One party organizer told the paper that she had been given quotes "upwards of £500 ($795)" to hire a traffic management firm.
-- Anarchists could be planning their own roadblocks in the hopes of disrupting the royal wedding, the Sun newspaper reported. The paper reports that leading anarchist Chris Knight called for followers to wreak havoc around Westminster Abbey for a month before carrying out further disruption on the day of the wedding.
"The plan is to mingle with well-wishers in large numbers, hold anarchist street parties, reoccupy Parliament Square, stage a carnival orgy and drive up security costs to the point when the whole wedding has to be relocated to St Paul's. This would be hugely embarrassing to the monarchy," the Sun quoted Knight as saying.
