Royal wedding guest list: the Beckhams, 'Mr. Bean,' Elton John and foreign royals will join Kate and William
This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.
An official guest list for the royal wedding was released Saturday, with celebs Elton John, David and Victoria Beckham, singer Joss Stone, director Guy Ritchie and "Mr. Bean" actor Rowan Atkinson among those confirmed to attend the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Oh, don't forget famed photographer Mario Testino, who snapped the couple's engagement pics.
David Beckham and William worked together as ambassadors of England's 2018 World Cup bid, and Ritchie is a friend of the bride and groom; Atkinson is a close friend of Charles, Prince of Wales, the father of the groom; John famously performed a personalized version of "Candle in the Wind" at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1997; and Stone performed at the 2007 Concert for Diana.
About 1,900 guests have been invited to the April 29 ceremony at Westminster Abbey, with 600 of them continuing on afterward to Buckingham Palace for an afternoon reception with champagne and appetizers.
St. James' Palace on Saturday also released the Abbey seating plan. Notably, the Spencer family -- Diana's relatives, and therefore linked to the groom -- will be seated in the North Lantern with the bride's family and some of Kate and William's friends. The royal family, with more than 46 foreign royals seated behind them, will be across the aisle.
