Mamamia 2 days ago Jessica Clark Press Association Do you have plans on May 20? Oh, its Great Aunt Mildreds 93rd birthday? You better call and tell her you can no longer make it because were all flying to England to attend Pippa Middletons wedding. Thats right, were all invited to the most anticipated almost-royal wedding of the year. Well, sort of. According to Telegraph, the Church of England – which runs the Berkshire church where Pippa Middleton and fiance James Matthews are set to wed – recently released new guidelines on “celebrity weddings”, which states that regular folk should have the right to attend. The document, entitled Celebrity Marriages in Anglican Cathedrals and Churches, states that “a marriage is a public ceremony which at the least all parishioners are entitled to attend”. That means that all residents of the parish surrounding St Mark’s Church theoretically have the right to rub shoulders with the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, to watch Pippa tie the knot. (Alright, so technically not just anyone can attend…It just means we’ll have to fly over a week or two earlier to establish ourselves in the area and go to a few church services first.
