Westminster Abbey Readying for Royal Wedding

The Buildup Has Started for Prince William and Kate Middleton's Big Day

Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding day is still two months away, but a buzz is already circling around Westminster Abbey. As the famed church begins its royal wedding preparations, officials are talking about the ever-growing to-do list.

Duncan Jeffrey, the Westminster Abbey's spokesman, told the BBC that items on the agenda include laundering and ironing the 50-foot wide High Alter cloth, and polishing brasses. More importantly, they will have to sort out the order of service, the readings and the choir music.

The Abbey will be consulting with Clarence House, Buckingham Palace, Lambeth Palace and the bishop of London on all the details.

This will be the 16th royal wedding held at Westminster Abbey. Staff members will begin final preparations at 5 a.m. on the wedding day, just a few hours before the 11 a.m. service begins.
