The Wedding Gifts
Unlike most engaged couples, Kate and William did not set up a wedding registry. Instead, they set up The Prince William and Kate Middleton Charitable Gift Fund, where guests could donate to 26 different charities.
"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," Clarence House said in a statement. "Many of the charities are little known, without existing royal patronage, and undertake excellent work within specific communities. They are charities that have a particular resonance with Prince William and Miss Middleton and reflect issues in which the couple have been particularly interested in their lives to date."
