Queen Elizabeth won't attend the wedding



Published: Wed, February 23, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



LONDON (AP) -- Buckingham Palace said Tuesday that Queen Elizabeth II would not attend the civil marriage ceremony of her son Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles -- but that her absence should not be interpreted as a snub.

The monarch will attend the church blessing at Windsor Castle after the April 8 civil ceremony in the local town hall and will host the wedding reception at the castle.

"The queen will not be attending the civil ceremony because she is aware that the prince and Mrs. Parker Bowles wanted to keep the occasion low key," a palace spokeswoman said. "The queen and the rest of the royal family will, of course, be going to the service of dedication at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle."

The spokeswoman denied the queen was snubbing her son's second marriage.

"The queen is attending the service of dedication and paying for the reception -- this is not a snub," she said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
