Prince William and Kate Honor Diana With a Song at Royal Wedding
Sadly, Princess Diana won’t get the chance to see Prince William walk down the aisle. But William and Kate have found a way to remember her at the Royal Wedding.

The first hymn sung during the Royal Wedding's musical service will be Guide Me, Thou Great Redeemer, which was the final hymn at Princess Diana's funeral and was also played at the memorial service remembering the 10th anniversary of her death.

Prior to the service, Kate has selected classical orchestral pieces by mostly British Composers. Fantasia in G by Johann Sebastian Bach will play first. Kate has also chosen Greensleeves, a traditional English song.

"Catherine is a fan of classical music and also had a lot of input from the Prince of Wales," says a Palace spokesman. "They spent a lot of time listening to the music together on iPods."

Three of the pieces—Farewell to Stromness, Touch Her Soft Lips and Part and Romance for String Orchestra Op. 11—were specifically chosen because they were played at Prince Charles wedding to the Duchess of Cornwall.

The countdown to the Royal Wedding has officially begun, and we couldn't be more excited. Though we'll have to see how we feel at 4 a.m. Couldn't the Royals have had the wedding a little later so we wouldn't have to stay up all night?
