1. He's not coming:
The Crown Prince of Bahrain has said he will not attend Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding on Friday because of ongoing unrest in the Gulf kingdom.

Prince Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa said it was with "deep regret" that he had reached his "considered decision".

He said he had hoped the situation in Bahrain would have improved so he could attend and not "overshadow" the event.

the situation would "improve" if his armed forced would stop kidnapping, torturing and killing doctors for one thing, not to mention everyone else.

It still says a lot that he was invited.
