With less than twenty-four hours to go until the event which the world has been waiting 2011 years to celebrate – the marriage between Prince William and Kate Middleton – sources at Westminster Abbey are this evening suggesting that William has decided to say “at least a couple” of his wedding vows in German.
In what is one of the most eagerly anticipated parts of the ceremony, with billions of people around the globe and, indeed, the galaxy as a whole waiting with bated breath to discover the depth of romantic sentiment in the words spoken by William and Kate, the Westminster Abbey source says that the loving Prince has chosen that moment to dedicate to his grandfather, Prince Philip.
“What better way to pay tribute to his dearly beloved grandfather than to say some of his vows in German?” commented the source. “The German language can only add to the romance of the entire occasion.”
“William wants to celebrate his family’s heritage and integrate it into the ceremony. He will no doubt make Philip and the entire family proud.”
