It's a proper party!

The guest list for Prince William and Kate Middleton's upcoming wedding was released on the official website of the royal wedding on Saturday. The Westminister Abbey seating plan was confirmed as well.

As expected, Joss Stone, Sir Elton John and David and Victoria Beckham are on the guest list. Madonna's ex-hubby, Guy Ritchie, will be attending. British television presenter Ben Fogle and Mr. Bean star Rowan Atkinson are also guests.

In a progressive twist, people who are married and those in civil partnerships have been invited with their spouse or partner.

The Queen, Prince Charles, Prince Harry and leading royals will be seated on the front row (South Lantern side) of Westminister Abbey. The Middleton family will be on the front row (North Lantern side) of the church.

The Dean of Westminister, Reverend John Hall, recently told Us Weekly: "There is a real buzz at the Abbey. Everyone is excited and things are really starting to shape up." And how does he think Prince William and Middleton are holding up? "Well who wouldn't be nervous?" he laughed.
