Find the ninja nun

Mullins, the publishers behind the Where's Wally books have paid William and Kate one million pound Stirling to use their wedding photographs in a Where's Wally style book.

"We're very excited," said Cullen Mullins, owner of Mullins. "There are thousands of people in some of these photos making them perfect for the Where's Wally style."

There are two challenges in a Where's Wally book. Firstly, there is finding Wally, and there is a secondary challenge of finding a variety of different people. As not even Eugenie would have worn a red and white striped pullover with a bobble hat (although she came close), the primary challenge in the new book has been dropped.

"What we do is give a list of things to find in each set of photos," said Mullins. "Like in the shot of the congregation we ask the reader to find a banana dress, an orange canoe on somebody's head, a hat shaped like a pretzel and somebody who turned up in a red and white striped marquee."

This sounds fairly simple, however, sample photos for the book indicate that this will be anything but.

"I had a quick look," said Will Self, author and book reviewer for the Daily Telegraph, "but I struggled. It's hard. Admittedly I was off my tits on caffeine at the time. Some of the outfits in the congregation are practically absurd. I didn't find an orange canoe on anybody's head, but I did find a stuffed canary."

William and Kate have been sent an advanced copy of the book.

"They found it so entertaining," said Mullins, "that they've cancelled their honeymoon to have a good old gander through the pages."
