The streets of London will be crowded with royal well-wishers, how and where will the royal groom and bride-to-be will spend their day?

William will spend the morning at Clarence House and travel from there to the ceremony. Kate and her family will spend the night before the wedding at the Goring Hotel, a traditional, luxurious hotel just across from Buckingham Palace.
