Britain’s Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement in November. The wedding will be at Westminster Abbey.

Keep an eye on the mailbox — Britain's Prince William and bride-to-be Kate Middleton have sent out invites to 1,900 or so guests for their royal wedding on April 29 in London. It's being cast as one of the hotly anticipated events of the year and is all hush-hush, but ...

In

Queen Elizabeth II (You bet.)

David Beckham, the soccer megastar, and his wife, Victoria, according to Britain's Sunday Express. (William worked with Beckham on England's failed bid to win the right to host the 2018 World Cup.)

Maybe

Elton John (a friend of William's mother, Diana, the princess of Wales)

Kanye West (a favorite of the prince who performed at a 2007 tribute concert for his mother)

European royals — about 40 in all — are on the list, but the names are a secret.

Out

Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and the ex-wife of William's uncle Prince Andrew. Enough said.

Lesser knowns

Then there are 1,000 or so guests — largely unknown — connected to the royals and the bride's family.
