Britain's Prince William and his fiancée Kate Middleton will invite members of the public to their wedding by holding a lucky draw for tickets, The Sun newspaper reported yesterday.
About 100 winners will get to rub shoulders with royals and heads of state at the service at Westminster Abbey.They also will be invited to raise a toast to the future king and queen at a lavish reception, expected to be held at Buckingham Palace.
Wedding-ticket winners will have to comply with a strict dress code and will face a full security check.
The royal couple are said to be "over the moon -- on cloud nine" after the date and venue of their big day, April 29, was officially announced.
But they are determined ordinary people should be given the opportunity to celebrate alongside them, The Sun said.A source close to the planning committee revealed, "William and Kate wanted the British people involved at a deeper level than simply holding street parties."
