The Royal Wedding Official Programme

The Day has finally arrived. Will you be among the forecasted 2 billion people watching the royal wedding today?

It must be wonderful to be in London right now. The city is all decked up with flags and buntings and everyone is in a party mood anticipating the big day. The atmosphere must be electric. People are already lining the streets and some are camping outside booking themselves a place for a better view of the royal couple. CNN showed Prince William out and about at a mall shaking hands with well-wishes at around 10pm and Kate earlier on arriving at the hotel she and her family would be staying.

For those of us who are too far away to get ourselves a souvenir item or two of the royal wedding, if it's any consolation for those of us who want a little momento of this big event, you could access or print yourself a copy of the Official Programme for the wedding.

The Official Programme for the wedding of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton is now available for the public to download for free from the Official Royal Wedding website.

The Official Programme includes the full Order of Service (as used by guests in Westminster Abbey), a personal message of thanks from Prince William and Miss Middleton, and a photo of the Couple taken by photographer Mario Testino at the time of the Couple’s engagement. The Official Programme features Prince William’s recently updated Coat of Arms on the front cover and Catherine Middleton’s new Coat of Arms on the back cover.

The Order of Service includes full details about the processions, music, hymns, prayers and readings. The Wedding Service follows the Book of Common Prayer (Alternative Services: Series One). There will be one Lesson during the service, which the Couple have asked James Middleton to read.

The Official Programme will also be available for free electronically in three formats: as a page-turning PDF (using Flash) and an iBook compatible with Apple products, which can be downloaded from the Apple iBookstore. It is also available as an Adobe Acrobat PDF (you will need Adobe Reader to view the file)

On the wedding day, 150,000 copies of the programme will be sold by 60 Explorer Scouts and 80 Cadets (supervised by adults) for £2 per copy at locations in Green Park, Hyde Park, St James’s Park and Trafalgar Square. Profits from the sale of the Official Programme will go to benefit The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.

Congratulations and Best Wishes..
