18 Days to Go Before the Royal Wedding
The countdown has begun. Eighteen days to go before the Royal Wedding of Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Elizabeth Middleton. Today the couple carried out their last official engagement before marrying at Westminster Abbey on April 29. William and Catherine visited Lancashire , England where the prince officially opened Darwen Aldridge Community Academy .
Catherine, who wore a navy blue suit, officially began a girls’ 100-meter race by dropping the flag and then presented the winner with a medal. The pouring rain did not damper the spirits of the thousands of well-wishers who came to cheer the couple.
