Royal Wedding Fever - Pop Quiz Answers and Giveaway!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Well, I am a little slow getting around to announcing the winner in the Royal Wedding Fever Giveaway (Sorry!) but the Sun came out here in the PNW over the Weekend and I just had to go out and enjoy it! :)

So, what did you all think about the Royal Wedding? I thought it was absolutely wonderful. I have watched it twice already! Everything was so beautiful and it did seem like a more intimate affair than a regal display of ostentation. I loved that they were able to invite more of their friends and family than they would have if it had been an Official State Wedding.

So, to recap here are the questions followed by the answers :)

Day One;

1). In What Church will Prince William and Kate Middleton get married?

6). Who will host the evening party for William and Kate on their Wedding day and for how many guests?
Prince Charles and for 300.

Day Four;
1). Where will Kate and William live starting off their married life?
Anglesey, Wales.

2). Who will design Kate's Wedding dress? (yes, this is a guess and go answer :)
Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.
3). What will William wear at his Wedding ceremony? (again, guess and go:)
Ceremonial uniform for the Colonel of the Irish Guards.
4). Name 6 Famous people you think might be at the Royal Wedding (not including Royals or the Beckhams, we know they have been bragging about this forever! :)
A few famous people I saw on the box, Elton John and David Furnish, Guy Richie, Joss Stone, Sir Trevor Brooking, Mario Testino, Sir John Major and of course The Beckhams. :)
5). How many horse drawn carriages does the Queen own and where are they housed?
Over 100 and they are housed in the Royal Mews. 
6). In 1981 Princess Diana confused Prince Charles's name at their vows and said "Phillip Charles Arthur George" What is the name Kate is going to have to say in her vows to William?
