The king is dead long live the village idiot
LONDON (Reuters) - It had all the ingredients of a proper royal wedding: romance, tradition, rain, and a gossip magazine feud.

Peter Phillips became on Saturday the first of the Queen's grandchildren to wed, marrying his Canadian bride Autumn Kelly in drizzly weather at a chapel at Windsor Castle.

Phillips, 30, is the Queen's eldest grandchild and son of Princess Anne. He is 11th in line to the throne.

Unlike his first cousins, Princes William and Harry -- or his sister, equestrian champion and Beijing Olympics hopeful Zara Phillips -- he has tended to stay out of the limelight.

Nevertheless, he accepted an offer from gossip magazine Hello! to allow its photographers exclusive access to the wedding for a reported 500,000 pounds.

Hello! calls it "the fairytale romance which has bridged continents and social divides".

But the rest of the celebrity-obsessed media was locked out, and predictably furious.

"What a start to married life for Princess Anne's son Peter Phillips -- cashing in on the accident of his birth and literally selling his grandmother to Hello! magazine," the Daily Mail thundered.

Kelly arrived with six bridesmaids in sage green frocks, including her royal sister-in-law Zara. They carried the train of her gown up the chapel steps to keep it out of puddles.

As is perhaps inevitable at weddings, speculation focused on who would be next. Prince Harry was expected to formally present his girlfriend of four years, Chelsy Davy, to the Queen for the first time.

Prince William's off-again-on-again girlfriend Kate Middleton was also present, but William himself was unable to attend because he was at a friend's wedding in Kenya.

Phillips and Kelly met in 2003 at the Montreal Grand Prix, when he worked for the Formula 1 racing team BMW Williams and she worked at the BMW hospitality suite.

He was determined to woo her on his own terms and did not initially tell her of his royal lineage. She has said she found out she was dating a royal when she saw him on a television programme about Prince William.

Kelly was raised Roman Catholic, but became a Protestant before the wedding. Under 300-year-old laws, a royal who marries a Catholic loses his claim to the throne.

does that mean us catholics can withhold some of our taxes that help pay for these paracites

Well, if she's willing to give up her faith to marry a royal I don't think she's any great loss to catholicism.

The really disturbing thing about that report is the selling of the rights to "Hello". Just how tacky can you get? It just shows the depths to which the junior royals have sunk.

what is worse tho, them asking for the money, or the silly ***** for giving them the money for them photos. I don't blame them at all, if i was some D list celeb or a Royal no body knows and gets offered than much for some pics, i would snap there hand off.
we live in a world where people are obsessed with how these royals, hollywood actors live and it's just sad. These magazines like heat, hello to name but a few are just complete crap and i should know cos the wife bloody buys them.
There is more to the world than wanting to know how much Angelina Jolie is spending on her a new house in nepal. Who gives a rats turd

the country isnt run by church and government.
its run by a democratically elected government.
if you dont like it use your vote.

as far as I know, there was also a public gallery. I am certain they wouldnt force you to covert to CoE just to get in, so that would reduce the amount of discrimination... And also, if you ever find yourself in love with a member of the royal family and want to get married, I am sure this is a question you could raise with them at the time.

As for me, I am just glad to see that the royal family is using its noodle for once. This is a regular couple in a regular relationship getting married because they love eachother - that cannot be a bad thing, surely?

It may seem trivial to some but I can see Countryboy's point.

It's time this antiquated religious discrimination was dropped.

The edge.
ban all religions, itll be a hell of a lot easier

at the end of the day, people are people no matter what they believe in, and in the end everyone dies

live life, stop moaning over crap and be happy

Isn't there also some crazy rule that the Prime Minister can never be a Catholic?

Look at Tony Blair, he had to wait until his term in office was finished before becoming a Catholic, this country has a few issues to sort out.

Like countryboy says, if the rule was 'no blacks' then there would be an uproar, but 'no Catholics' is acceptable!!?
