According to the Sunday Telegraph gossip columnist, not only are Kate Middleton and William going to ask guests to donate to their favourite charities instead of giving them gifts, they are going to so so in the invitations:
"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," says a senior royal aide. (Who is left anonymous!)
Can we believe this? Could this be true? Does being "royalty" make this acceptable? If it is true, will the fact that it was done by royalty make it etiquettely correct for others in future? Or could the gossip columnist be making this up?
