TORONTO, April 25 /CNW/ - In the midst of grim world events - not to
mention Canada's election race - the impending marriage of Prince
William and Catherine Middleton is a good-news, breath-of-fresh-air
that even the most cynical among us can't seem to get enough of. This
week, Maclean's goes behind the scenes of this grand and not-so-simple
affair, dedicating 30 pages to this story of hope (after Diana, could
this be the happy ending?); passion (insiders say it's true love);
unbridled opulence (no expense has been spared); and, of course, family
Stories in this week's special issue include:
Queen Making: Her hemlines have been measured, posture checked, smiles
reviewed. The verdict? So far, Kate has not put a foot wrong and her
royal catwalk is a hit.
Who's in and who's way out
Anne loathes Camilla and Edward and Andrew are "volatile": the Windsors
are just like any large family (except for the royal bit).
The other love story - William and the Queen
Her duty was to be the Queen, his is to become King. In this they are
perfectly united, in love and honour bound.
The firm's got buzz
TV, live streaming, iTunes, Google, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr,
Web managers, and more.
Don't expect a cash bar
No expenses have been spared for this shindig.
Know your place
For the 300 guests invited to Charles's wedding dinner, picking up the
right fork is just the beginning.
