PRINCES DRAW CHEERS AS USHERS AT WEDDING

Prince William and Prince Harry served as ushers Saturday at the society wedding of the year in Britain.

The princes got a big cheer from an estimated 4,000 people who gathered outside Chester
Cathedral for the wedding of Lady Tamara Grosvenor, daughter of the Duke of Westminster, and Edward van Cutsem, a banker.

Both families are well-connected with royal circles, and 650 guests -- including Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip -- attended the ceremonies.

Prince Charles was absent, reportedly because he balked at sitting far away from his partner, Camilla Parker Bowles. Charles said he had to attend a meeting with families of the Black Watch Regiment, which was recently redeployed nearer Baghdad.

The 24-year-old bride is the eldest daughter of the Duke of Westminster, Britain's richest man, with a personal fortune estimated at $7.4 billion.

Cheers greeted Prince William and Prince Harry as they emerged from the cathedral after the wedding. Some girls chanted: "Marry me, William."
