Will and Kate: No gifts, please

Don’t bother buying William and Kate that blender – they don’t want it.

For their relatively low-key affair, the royal couple will forgo wedding registry scan guns.  William and Kate are asking guests – except for close friends and family – to pass on lavish gifts. Instead, they'll ask them to donate money to chosen charities, which have not yet been announced.

“William and Kate have everything they need so they have decided that it might be nice to ask for charitable donations instead of presents,” a source told the Daily Mail. “They have said this is their wish and the logistics are being looked into.”

    When I first heard about the no gifts please - donate instead, I thought I was dreaming. WOW - can these two be anymore humble?! I am SOOOOOOO pleased that they have decided to do this - it really is the right thing to do. God Bless them both. I wish them a marriage filled with love, friendship, children (if they want) and happiness.

    These two are outstanding. Princess Diana did a remarkable job of raising Prince William for the time that she was here on earth. He is an outstanding fellow. Kate Middleton just seems like the right kind of person for him. I truly wish them a lifetime of happiness and love.

      No gifts please. However, if you have a spare Bugatti Veyron, we'll find a way to make an exception.

        In this day and age of greed when it comes to weddings and gifts for such an affair, it is refreshing to see Kate and Prince William looking to help support the charities that mean something to them! It really is a reflection of Diana, you see when you read this story! She did well by her son, even though she had to leave him so soon!
