A wedding in England

On Saturday, May 17, the first Grandchild of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be getting married. Peter Phillips is Princess Anne's son, the only daughter of the Queen of England.

Peter will be marrying his long time love Montreal born Autumn Kelly. Since Peter does not have a title, his new bride will not have a title as well. Princess Anne didn't give her children title because of two reasons. One, because of their father (Captain Mark Phillips) does not have a title. Two, because she wanted them to lead a normal life. What is normal anyway? Having lots of money and having nannies? and living in a castle??? and having the Queen of England your grandmother??? Hmmmmm...

There was some buzz whether Peter will have to give up his rights to the throne for marrying a catholic girl. In the end, apparently Autumn decided to renounce her religion to join the Church or England. Do you think she's hoping that there might be a slight chance that she could be Queen of England someday??? I doubt that will happen. Peter is tenth line to the throne, so I think it's a long ways, but I guess it's worth a try. Best Wishes!
