Preparations in full swing as Kate reveals diet plans

09 MARCH 2011

With just over a month before her big day, Kate Middleton is clearly keen to maintain the slender frame that first caught William's eye at a university charity fashion show.

During the couple's recent trip to Belfast, a motherly well-wisher had some advice for the 29-year-old. "I told her not to lose any more weight and she said it was all part of the wedding plan," revealed housewife Heather Lindsay.




The brunette beauty also spoke to onlookers about the preparations ahead of April 29.

She said: "I have been to lots of friends' weddings but I never realised how much there was to do."


Among the details still to be finalised is the music for the service. The couple made a discreet visit to Westminster Abbey on Monday night to sort out the musical arrangements for the ceremony.

A senior royal source told the Express: "They listened to some of the music that will be played at the wedding but not all of it."

The couple were advised by Prince Charles who has "always taken a close interest in classical and church music".

The future king and queen are taking the preparations in their stride. The source said: "They looked relaxed and seemed to enjoy themselves. They are obviously very keen that everything should be right on the big day."

One aspect of the wedding, however, that Prince William won't be getting involved in is the floral arrangements.

At one point during their trip, they were asked about the wedding bouquet and button-holes, leading the 28-year-old to joke: "I will let Kate do the chatting about flowers - I am out of my depth."

The visit to Northern Ireland gave onlookers yet another chance to see the happy couple interacting together.



With the good humour that we are coming to expect from them, they got stuck into pancake flipping and shared a laugh with the crowds.

One woman had brought the Prince a black baseball cap with the word "groom" embroidered on it and a matching white cap with "bride" for Kate.

Ever the gentleman, William politely declined the gift, quipping: "Can you imagine what my grandmother would say if I wore this at Westminster Abbey?"
