Kim Kardashian was reportedly so impressed by Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding that she's using it as inspiration for her own nuptials.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim will marry rapper fiancé Kanye West this weekend and, according to a new report, it will be a wedding fit for royalty.

Kim's aunt Karen Houghton is quoted as telling The Sun: "Kim saw the visually stunning royal wedding and wants to replicate that. It's a great chance to show the world what a classy family we have."

Millions of people around the world tuned in to watch Kate and William's televised wedding on 29 April, 2011. They married at Westminster Abbey, with Kate looking beautiful in a custom-made Alexander McQueen dress.

Kim has often spoken in the past of her admiration for Kate, calling her a "class act".

It's believed that Kim and Kanye will marry on Saturday, 24 May although the exact destination is still up in the air.

Initial reports claimed they would wed in Paris, France, but recently it's been speculated they'll actually tie the knot in Florence, Italy.

Kim and Kanye have rented the 16th century Belvedere Fort this weekend, while a hive of activity around the fort has fuelled rumours of an Italian wedding.

The whole Kardashian-Jenner clan, however, is currently in Paris, where it's thought a pre-wedding reception will be held before guests are flown to Florence.

Details of Kimye's wedding have been kept pretty under wraps - and they might stay that way as Kim has vowed she won't allow her vows to be filmed.
