On 10 February 2005, Clarence House announced that The Prince of Wales is to marry Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles. The marriage will take place on Friday, 8 April at Windsor Castle.

Mrs Parker Bowles will use the title HRH The Duchess of Cornwall after marriage.

It is intended that Mrs Parker Bowles should use the title HRH The Princess Consort when The Prince of Wales accedes to the Throne.

The wedding will be a largely private occasion for family and friends. It will comprise a civil ceremony in Windsor Castle on Friday, 8 April. There will be subsequently a blessing conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury in St. George's Chapel. ( w w )

Lorna and Greg broke the news on Sunrise.

Martin Stanford live from Buckingham Palace.

Adam Boulton live from Westminster

Alistair Bruce is in the studio with Julie Etchingham.

I mean...who really cares ?? I really detest the way Sky will now have a non stop barrage of nonsense over this.

Glad I dont live in the UK anymore and have my taxes squandered on people that dont work and claim a 12 million GBP salary a year for doing sweet FA living in huge houses that the public funds from the pocket.

Fair enough. I don't care all that much, it's fun to watch though.

Kay Burley (& Ollie on camera) are now outside Windsor Castle. (dressed up warm!)

Geoff Meade is in the City of London, following Prince Charles.

Oh dear,here we go again,sky news will now try and find as many people as they can who will try and find a hundred diffrent ways over the next few weeks to give us the same 5 mins worth of information.What a bore.

Nearly all the polls that been done on the charles/parker bowles thing over the years have all pretty much confirmed that most people dont care what they do.

The only good thing about it for me is that i get to see kay out and about instead of stuck in the studio

Doubt the royal wedding will be that big of a deal. Sounds like its just going to be rather private. Can anyone actually remember the Sophie and Edward one?

Its rare that I ever have any praise for the Daily Sport but their headline which I've just seen on the paper review on Newsnight sums up the day's event perfectly.

"Boring old gits to marry"
