Celebs, sports figures, royalty flock to royal wedding
LONDON -- Celebrities, sports stars and royalty have flocked to Westminster Abbey before the royal wedding.Among the hundreds of guests filing into Westminster Abbey were soccer star David Beckham and his Spice Girl wife Victoria. Chelsy Davy, Prince Harry's on-again-off-again girlfriend, was already seated.
The Great North Door opened Friday morning under three hours before the ceremony was due to begin.
A number of famous people were left off the guest list, including President Barack Obama and most other world leaders. Also not invited were Britain's last two prime ministers, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, in what is seen by some as a snub to their Labour Party, which traditionally is not as strong a backer of the monarchy as the ruling Conservatives.
