British military unveils royal wedding plans
LONDON, England -- Britain's military says it plans to line the streets with soldiers and perform a flypast in honor of Prince William's wedding to Kate Middleton later this month.
The Ministry of Defense says planes from World War II will join modern combat jets in soaring over Buckingham Palace shortly after the couple tie the knot on April 29.
Soldiers, sailors and airmen will line the path after the couple leave Westminster Abbey, while more than 1,000 military personnel and military musicians will be placed along the route from the abbey to the palace.
The ministry said Friday that a guard of honor from the Welsh Guards would be at the palace for the return of the royal family members from the wedding.
