Prince William was recently interviewed for the Queen's Jubilee special Elizabeth: Queen, Wife, Mother, which will air in the U.K. on June 1. Us Weekly got a preview, and reports that among other things, William dished a bit on the his wedding, which his grandmother apparently had a hand in party planning. "There was very much a subdued moment when I was handed a list with 777 names on it—not one person I knew or Catherine knew," William recalls. "I went to [Queen Elizabeth] and said, 'Listen, I've got this list, not one person I know—what do I do?' And she went, 'Get rid of it. Start from your friends and then we'll add those we need to in due course. It's your day.'" [US Weekly]
