<p><span></span>When <strong>Prince William</strong> finally weds longtime girlfriend <strong>Kate Middleton</strong> in June 2012, only a select group of VIP's will make the guest list! The location they're eyeing, St. George's Chapel in Windsor, seats only 1,300 people--compared to father, Prince Charles and mother, Diana's massive ceremony of more than 3,500 guests. So which famous faces made the cut? </p>
Life & Style has learned that likely VIP's on the guest list include first lady Michelle Obama, Diddy and Rod Stewart! "Elton John, who was extremely close to Diana, will most certainly be at the wedding," adds an insider. Meanwhile, scandal-ridden Sarah Ferguson, who was caught on tape negotiating a bribe in exchange for access to her ex, Prince Andrew, "is banned," a palace insider tells Life & Style.
And Both Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth will have a strong say as to who makes the cut. "It will be the job of aides at Clarence House, which is the Prince's London residence, as well as Buckingham Palace, where the queen lives, to compile the guest list," royal correspondent Katie Nicholl, author of William and Harry, a book about the royal brothers, tells Life & Style. "There's a lot of protocol involved -- many heads of state and European royal families must be accounted for and included."
