Countdown to the Royal Wedding Begins

The countdown to the royal wedding has begun and with just days to go before she becomes a member of the royal family, Kate Middleton paid a visit to her parents' home in Bucklebury. INSIDE EDITION has the story.

With three days to go before the wedding, Kate Middleton was spotted leaving her parent's house after going over final wedding plans.  

And it looks like it's going to be a wet wedding day for Will and Kate!

The forecast for Friday is thunderstorms, high winds, and heavy rain. Superstition says a little drizzle on a wedding day is good luck, but for this big event, rain is a royal pain.

Instead of riding in an open-air carriage after the "I dos" as Diana and Charles did, newlyweds Will and Kate will be driven in a glass covered coach if it rains.  

"It'll be a shame for photographs and hopefully her dress won't get splattered, but to be honest I think the spirit of the wedding and the happiness and joy of the British people will not change despite the weather," says INSIDE EDITION Special Correspondent and Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden.

Next McInerney visited Garrard jewelry store where she got to try on a breathtaking tiara encrusted with diamonds and red spinels. Its estimated value is $200,000.

Middleton will reportedly be donning the Queen's own diamond tiara at the wedding of century, as her "something borrowed."

"It's an amazing thing for the queen to be able to do that, it shows how fond she is of Kate. It will obviously be a priceless piece of jewelry, with diamonds everywhere," says Holden.
