Even being the future king of England and the co-star of one of the most viewed weddings in history will not spare Prince William the frustration of being denied one typical marriage custom. He isn’t going to be able to ‘kiss his bride’ Kate Middleton once they are pronounced man & wife!

Once the ceremony is complete and the rings have been exchanged, there will be no royal smooch at the altar for the benefit of the 1,900 guests in attendance. Church of England protocol expressly forbids such behavior, especially in a hallowed site such as Westminster Abbey, one of the world’s most famous churches. [photogallerylink id=30432 align=left]

FYI: When William’s mother, Princess Diana, wed Prince Charles in 1981, the pair also did not kiss in church. Instead they produced an iconic moment on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. That balcony moment is due to be repeated by William and Kate.

What ceremonial custom would you have missed the most if protocol didn’t allow?
