QUEEN TO SKIP CHUCK NUPS*
|Lucianne has the best photo with a priceless caption.|
Queen 'does not approve or does not care' about royal big day
"The Queen will not be attending the civil ceremony because she is aware that the prince and Mrs Parker Bowles wanted to keep the occasion low key. The Queen and the rest of the Royal Family will, of course, be going to the service of dedication at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. She is very pleased to be giving the wedding reception at the castle." - BUCKINGHAM PALACE SPOKESPERSON
Asked if the Queen’s decision was a snub, the spokeswoman replied: "The Queen is attending the service of dedication and paying for the reception - this is not a snub."
"You would have to be an absolutely dedicated monarchist not to see this as a snub.
"She is his mother. What mother would stay away from her son’s wedding other than a mother who isn’t happy about that wedding? That would be the basic assumption by anybody."
