Rumors were sparked last week that the couple had chosen Westminster Abbey for their location when Middleton was spotted leaving the venue Wednesday evening, a day after the announcement of her engagement to the Prince.

Palace officials announced that the Royal Family will be paying for the church service, music and parties. The cost of security -- which could be well into the multi-millions -- will be paid for by the British taxpayers.
