Nicky Hilton to wed at royal palace - report

Hotel heiress Nicky Hilton is to enjoy her own royal wedding next month (Jul15) after reportedly booking a space at London's Kensington Palace for her nuptials.

Paris Hilton's sister is to tie the knot with British banking heir James Rothschild in his native U.K. on 10 July (15) and a new report now suggests the wedding will take place at the home of British royals Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.


The New York Post reports the couple will exchange vows in the palace's orangery, which is licenced for civil wedding ceremonies and hosts receptions on its terrace. The venue is close to the apartment at the palace where the royal couple lives with son Prince George and baby daughter Princess Charlotte.


The royals are believed to be out of town enjoying an extended break at their country estate in Norfolk, England following Charlotte's birth last month (May15).


The news comes just days after Hilton's parents Rick and Kathy won their bid to move their son Conrad's sentencing hearing in New York City to stop the court date clashing with the wedding.


Conrad Hilton, 21, will now hear his sentence on 16 June (15) after pleading guilty to common assault for an outburst on a flight from London to Los Angeles last summer (14).
