With Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding inching closer, speculation is reaching a fever pitch about who has been included on the 350-person guest list. Famous folks like Elton John, Guy Ritchie, and David and Victoria Beckham made the cut, naturally. But the British press has recognized a few other familiar faces who received invitations. Two of Kate’s exes are on the guest list—Rupert Finch, her boyfriend at St. Andrews before William, and Willem Marx, who she dated as a teenager. And William has invited four exes—Jecca Craig (his assumed first love), Rose Farquhar (his first girlfriend), Arabella Musgrave (who he dated before college), and Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe (who he supposedly made a play for in 2004). That’s a whole lot of former paramours who’ll be watching the couple say “I do.” Many people subscribe strictly to the rule: no exes at a wedding because it can be awkward for the couple, not to mention strange for the ex. But others make exceptions since, over time, exes can become extremely close friends. Where do you stand on this issue? Keep reading »

Over the weekend, Prince Harry threw Prince William his bachelor party. A while ago, rumors circulated that Snoop Dogg would be performing at the party to end all parties—he even wrote a totally inappropriate anthem for the occasion called “Wet.” But we have a feeling that didn’t actually happen.
