LONDON -- Prince William and Kate Middleton are foregoing typical wedding registries for their nuptials next month. Instead of gifts, the couple is asking well wishers to send donations to one of their favorite charities.
"These causes are close to their hearts and reflect the experiences, passions and values of their lives so far," says a statement on the website for the Royal Wedding Charitable Gift Fund. "Having been touched by the goodwill shown to them since their engagement, they have asked that anyone wishing to send them a wedding gift consider doing so in the form of a donation to the fund.
The fund focus on five causes chosen by the couple: Changing Lives through Arts and Sport, Children Fulfilling Their Potential, Help and Care at Home, Support for Service Personnel and Their Families, and Conservation for Future Generations.
