Kate and Will's Final Walkabout Before Royal Wedding

The Couple Visit East Lancashire, England

Today marks the last official engagement for Will and Kate before the royal wedding later this month.

The couple visited England's East Lancashire town of Darwen to open an academy and launch a Prince's Award.

William is to officially open an academy and launch an award called the SkillForce Prince's Award.

Kate, known for her sporting prowess, will be invited to start a 100-meter race and meet a group of athletes and coaches.

"Kate looks phenomenal," royal expert Katie Nicholl, who was in Darwen, said. "She's wearing her hair half up and half down. The rumor is she might be wearing it like that for the day of the wedding itself. Maybe this is a practice run."

The final appearance of the couple before the wedding day has set tongues wagging about the guest list.

Apparently, David Beckham and wife Victoria are on the list, as well as director Guy Ritchie, but his ex-wife, Madonna, is not.

Will has invited four of his exes and Kate has invited two old flames.
