Royal wedding: the band, the Beckhams and Kate Middleton's baby pictures

Prince William and Kate Middleton

This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.

We have lots of lovely updates from the magical world of Prince William and his betrothed, Kate Middleton — including baby pics, musical selections and a potential RSVP from David and Victoria Beckham.

Kate Middleton baby picture First, the newly launched offical wedding website has published an official biography of Middleton, who will one day be queen consort when William assumes the throne. Said bio includes an adorable baby photom right. 

As for the big day, her dress is a mystery, but a new report has details on the beautiful music for Kate and her prince's procession.

On Monday night the couple hit up Westminster Abbey, the site of their April 29 wedding, to hear a selection of classical and religious music to be used in the service.

"They looked relaxed and seemed to enjoy themselves," a source told People, saying also that Prince Charles, first in line for the throne, accompanied them.

Speaking of attendance, international reports say Hollywood Brits David and Victoria Beckham sent in their RSVPs for the big day and that the soccer star got special dispensation from his L.A. Galaxy captain to attend.

Beckham will have to dash back to the U.S. the next day to participate in a soccer match against a club from Texas. No word on whether Victoria will scoot back with him or hang out in her native England a bit longer. Middleton is said to be donning Victoria's wares for one of several post-wedding appearances before her honeymoon.

For the record, 8:25 p.m. March 8: This post originally stated incorrectly that Charles and Diana were married at Westminster Abbey; in fact, they got married at St. Paul's Cathedral. Thanks to commenters @Julie, @envelopereader and @Peggy for flagging the error.
