Royal Wedding Roll Call: Will and Kate's Old Flames on the Invite List

Hunt is a friend of the couple from their days at St. Andrews and has vacationed with them on ski trips. William was reportedly smitten with her before he began dating Kate.

When William began pursuing Kate, Middleton was already involved with upperclassman Rupert Finch. She soon broke off that relationship to date the Prince.

Talking to the Daily Mail, Finch said in 2006, "It's not something I'll ever talk about. It's between Kate and me and was a long time ago."

Craig was the only one of William's former flames who caused the Palace to issue a statement about their relationship. In 2003, after press reports that the duo had "staged a mock engagement ceremony" at Craig's family home in Kenya, the Palace denied William and Jecca were involved.

Invitations to Prince William's Royal Wedding Mailed

Most of the guests already know who they are since many of them received a save-the-date fax from the Queen a few weeks ago.  The 1,800 invitees will receive a "traditional, gold-embossed handwritten invitation," according to the Daily Mail.

Several European royals have already RSVPed, including one of William's godfathers, King Constantine, the former ruler of Greece.  A spokesman for him and his wife Queen Anne-Marie and their son Crown Prince Pavlos confirmed to the Daily Mail that the Greek royal family received a fax and plan to attend.

But the most sought after ticket isn't the one that gets you into Westminster Abbey.  Katie Nicholl, author of the book William and Harry: Behind the Palace Walls, told ABC News that the "ticket that everyone really wants -- and it is the golden ticket -- is the invitation to the evening reception which is being hosted at Buckingham Palace by the Prince of Wales."

Just 300 people are attending the exclusive soiree.  Nicholl said "William and Kate have been told they can invite 100 each."´╗┐
