LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- With less than 24 hours until the Royal Wedding, the program for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s marriage ceremony has been revealed.
The booklet boasts 28 pages of wedding information — including a note expressing thanks from the soon-to-be royal couple, a map of event locations, material on the historical significance of Westminster Abbey and a schedule of the service, revealing full details of the processions, music, prayers and readings of the highly anticipated ceremony.
The program also includes a newly released, two-page black and white photo of Prince William and his bride-to-be appearing happy and relaxed, with both parties grinning from ear to ear.
Photographer Mario Testino captured the flattering portrait of the pair at the time of the couple’s engagement.
On Friday, 60 Explorer Scouts and 80 Cadets – with adult supervision – will sell 150,000 copies of the official program for 2 GBP (roughly $3.30 USD) per copy at locations in Trafalgar Square, St. James’s Park, Hyde Park and Green Park.
Proceeds from programs purchased will be donated to The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.
