Queen Elizabeth won't go To Prince Charles' Wedding!

he Queen will not attend the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, it has been announced.

But Buckingham Palace has denied that the Queen is snubbing her son's wedding.

The palace stressed that she would be going to the church blessing after the civil ceremony.

The couple are due to get married at the Guildhall in Windsor on April 8.

A Palace spokeswoman said: "The Queen's prime concern is that the civil ceremony should be as low key as possible, in line with the couple's wishes.

"Clearly if the Queen were to attend, the occasion would no longer be, by definition, low key."

Asked if it was a snub, the spokeswoman said: "The Queen is attending the service of dedication and paying for the reception - that is not a snub."

Prince William and Harry, along with Mrs Parker Bowles's children will be present civil ceremony.

Constitutional historian Dr David Starkey said the Queen's decision was "unprecedented" in Royal history.

Shameful conduct on the part of a mother for her son. And the U.K really needs a monarchy?
