    Prince William and Kate Middleton will participate in Britain’s celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens. They’ll lay a wreath at Dickens’ grave in Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey and visit the Charles Dickens Museum, where The X-Files’ Gillian Anderson will give a reading. Anderson played Miss Havisham in the BBC’s recent Great Expectations. Ralph Fiennes, who plays Magwitch in a new adaptation of Great Expectations, will read from Bleak House. Mark Dickens, Charles’s great-great-grandson, will also read.
