Prince William and his bride to be Kate Middleton have requested that those who wish to give them gifts for their wedding instead donate to charity.
The soon-to-be wed couple set up a royal "Gift Fund", allowing those who wish to give gifts to the couple to instead chose from one of 26 charities on their website (royalweedingcharityfund.org).
The royal charity registry is the first of it's kind and many are showing their support for the couples decision.
"It reflects the new, modern royal family," Andrew White, a British construction management consultant from Minneapolis told the Star Tribune, "and what the princes are all about, "They have everything they could possibly need. I think it's brilliant."
While many support the registery, some are concerned that the list does not include charities focused on relief efforts involved in the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
According to a statement from a spokeswoman at the royal office gave to the Arizona Star, William and Middleton are "obviously very shocked and saddened by the events in Japan," but the list of charities has been in the works for weeks and is focused on countries the prince has visited.
