London - Call it a charity bonanza. Royal aides say Prince William and Kate Middleton are considering asking guests at their April 29 wedding to make donations to charity instead of giving them wedding gifts.

A spokesperson, who asked not to be identified because of royal family policy, said on Sunday this option is being considered but no firm decision has been made. Close friends and family could still give the couple traditional gifts under the plan.

A substantial amount of money could be raised for charity this way.

Aides say the royal couple is determined to make sure their wedding is not overly ostentatious.

The guest list has not yet been released.
