London, Jan 16 (ANI): Prince William and Kate Middleton will ask their wedding guests to make donations to their favourite charities rather than giving them traditional wedding presents, such as toasters or tea sets.
The couple, who will marry on April 29 at Westminster Abbey in London, have decided to forego matching sets of chinaware and napkins, and will instead ask their wedding guests to donate to charity.
The future king and queen are finalising the list for their wedding invitations, in which guests will be given details of how to make a charitable donation to a cause with which they are associated.
The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry, established by the two princes in 2009 to help young people in society and raise awareness and support for servicemen and women, will be one of the charities listed in the couple's invitations, say sources.
"Nobody has received a formal invitation yet, but when the invitations are issued, they will have some kind of instruction on how to make a donation to a charity chosen by the couple," the Telegraph quoted a senior royal aide as saying.
"They are still considering whether it will be just the Foundation or whether they will also pick individual charities and projects which they are linked with," the royal aide added. (ANI)
