The wedding reception, and an after-party, to celebrate Prince William and Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding, will be held at Buckingham Palace. If you're wondering at what royal treatment they'll get, peek into Buckingham Palace's opulent West Wing staterooms.
The State Dining Room: The opulent dining room, decorated red silk damask and portraits of past royals, will be one of 19 rooms thrown open to the 600 high profile guests invited for the champagne breakfast reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth II.
The Blue Drawing Room: The blue drawing room, the venue for the first state ball held at Buckingham Palace in 1838, which has a table specially made for Napoleon, will be used as the Banquet Room for the royal lunch reception hosted by the Queen.
The Picture Gallery: The main focus of the reception, the long picture gallery, with gold-painted ceiling, will boast masterpieces by artists like Canaletto, Rembrant and Rubens for the occasion. The multi-tiered wedding cake will be the centre-piece of the gallery.
The White Drawing Room: Overlooking the palace's gardens is the White Dining Room, which is dominated by a picture of Queen Alexandra, the current queen's grandmother. Prince Charles will host a smaller reception for the couple at Buckingham palace later in the evening.
The Music Room: While it will be used for the morning reception, the Music Room, could also serve as a venue for the ‘intimate after party’ the Daily Mail says William and Kate have planned for friends. Guests to this party could include the likes of Guy Ritchie and Rowan Atkinson.
