Pop goddess MADONNA wants to wed like royalty - in London's Westminster Abbey.
The 42-year-old MUSIC star plans to marry British director boyfriend GUY RITCHIE - and can't think a better place to do it than the Abbey, scene of many royal weddings. She says, "If you can be a place like England with so much grand architecture, why not take advantage?"
Although the star is pop royalty, she just doesn't cut it in Britain - as only real royals or holders of British national honours can wed in the legendary Abbey. Assistant Receiver General JOHN McANGUS says, "Unfortunately it would be almost impossible for Madonna to get married at the Abbey." (NFA/WNTSU/PDD)
