Prince William Urges Wedding Guests to Donate Money


Prince William, Kate Middleton


The British prince and his fiancee Kate Middleton have stopped their nuptials guests to buy them gifts and instead asked them to donate money for good causes.

Prince William and Kate Middleton have asked their wedding guests to donate money to good causes instead of buying them gifts, with some of the cash earmarked for survivors of the New Zealand earthquake. The couple is due to exchange vows in London on April 29 and ahead of the ceremony, they have urged guests not to buy them gifts.

They have asked instead for donations to be made to a charitable fund, which will distribute the money to their favorite good causes, including New Zealand's Christchurch Earthquake Appeal, founded in the aftermath of February massive tremor, which left more than 160 people dead. William is due to visit the region later this week.

"Having been touched by the goodwill shown them since the announcement of their engagement, Prince William and Miss Middleton have asked that anyone who might wish to give them a wedding gift consider giving instead to a charitable fund," a statement from Buckingham Palace reads.

Donations can be made at RoyalWeddingCharityFund.org.
