Wills & Kate: The Royal Wedding Guest List
There were a few surprises on Prince William and Kate Middleton's guest list for their Royal Wedding, taking place on April 29, 2011.
According to NBC, Kanye West made the list of 1,900 invitees, since the Prince is a huge fan.
Meanwhile The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, will not be attending the nuptials - although her daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are expected to attend.
And although U.S. President Obama didn't get invited, leaders of the Commonwealth countries, including Canada's PM Stephen Harper, reportedly received invitations.
Wills and Kate will make their first official overseas visit as a married couple to Canada in June, with the following statement from PM Harper: "Their decision to come to Canada first is a testament to our country’s very close relationship with the Royal Family."
In addition to Kanye, other celebrities confirmed to have received the coveted invite cards (pictured below), include Sir Elton John and David Furnish, as well as David and Victoria Beckham.
The soccer star is said to have grown close to Wills when they made the World Cup bid in South Africa last year.
