STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Guests at the upcoming wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton may be disappointed to hear no beer will be served. The�Daily Mirror�reports beer is banned from the reception.

An unnamed insider told the Mirror beer is not an appropriate drink to serve in the presence of the queen.
