Royal wedding planner: How THIS royal helped Kate Middleton and William plan their wedding | Royal | News

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William have been married for nine years, tying the knot at Westminster Abbey in London. The couple had been together since 2003, and the wedding was viewed live by more than two billion people.
Now, one Royal Family member revealed they had an unlikely role in the wedding planning.
Prince William's father, Prince Charles, recently spoke to Alan Titchmarsh as part of a special Classic FM programme celebrating his life-long love of classical music.
During the conversation, Charles revealed he had helped William and Kate pick music for their wedding.
He said: “I love trying to organise some interesting, I hope, pieces of music for certain occasions…particularly for weddings if people want.”

Of helping William and Kate Charles revealed: “I know my eldest son was quite understanding and was perfectly dismal for me to suggest a few pieces for their wedding.
“I hope that gave some people pleasure, but it’s rather fun having orchestras in for great occasions like that, and why not suggest a few pieces occasionally? Anyway… I do enjoy it.”
Prince Charles is known for his love of classical music, and when speaking to the radio presenter spoke of his first visit to the Royal Opera House, in 1956.
This was to see the Bolshoi Ballet perform The Fountain of Bakhchisarai during their debut tour of the UK.

He said: "The music was unbelievably exciting.
"It was all Tartar dancing and cracking the whips and leaping in the air and doing unbelievably energetic things, which only the Bolshoi could do.
"I was completely inspired by that... Which is why it's so important, I think, for grandparents and other relations to take children at about the age of seven to experience some form of the arts in performance."

Of the classical music pieces performed at William and Kate’s wedding in 2011, three are said to have been chosen as they had also been performed at Prince Charles and Camilla’s wedding in 2005.

These pieces are Farewell to Stromness by Peter Maxwell Davies, Touch Her Soft Lips and Part by William Walton and Romance for String Orchestra Op. 11 by Gerald Finzi.
Not only did Prince Charles help his oldest son, but also had a hand in Harry and Meghan’s wedding in 2018.
According to Karen Gibson, founder of The Kingdom Choir, it was Clarence House which rang to invite them to sing at Harry and Meghan’s wedding.
The Kingdom Choir performed a gospel rendition of Stand By Me by Ben E. King.

Ms Gibson told the BBC following the wedding: “I understand that Prince Charles really likes gospel music.
“The couple were very intentional about what they wanted sung and how they wanted it sung, but the actual idea came from Prince Charles – although they were very happy to have gospel music.”
During his appearance on Classic FM, Prince Charles also spoke of his inconvenience for the arts amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Theatres, concert halls and other venues are struggling after shutting their doors during the lockdown.
Charles said it was important to "find a way of keeping these orchestras and other arts bodies going".
The prince, who is patron several of arts institutions, said they were of "enormous importance" to the economy.
He said: "It's absolutely crucial that they can come back twice as enthusiastic as before."
