Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' nuptials have been widely touted as our version of the Royal Wedding. The New York Post even reports that Kris Humphries' friends have dubbed him "Kate Middleton" since he "married into royalty."
With this regal title -- and in an age of celebrity giving -- one might expect to hear reports of Kim and Kris' wedding including, say, charitable donations in lieu of gifts, a la Will and Kate; or donating photo earnings to help those less fortunate, as Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas did back in 2000.
So will Kim and Kris be next? The Huffington Post reached out to Kardashian-Humphries' press person to find out, but received no response back.
Kardashian-Humphries does have a decent philanthropic track record, according to Look to the Stars. She donates to the Dream Foundation, which helps people with terminal illnesses. She also contributes to the Calabasas, Calif. church her mother helped found.
Back in April, she told Self magazine that helping others gives her warm fuzzies:
"Donating to charity makes me feel good. I give away 10 percent of my money to different charities, like the Dream Foundation. If I can help someone with a terminal illness visit a loved one they might not have been with for 10 years, it's the greatest feeling in the world to me. If you give away, you'll always prosper."
All told, it's estimated that the wedding could earn $17 million for Kim, Kris, her family and E! show producers, according to USWeekly.

SLIDESHOW OF CELEBRITY WEDDINGS THAT DID -- AND DIDN'T -- GIVE BACK
Though Kate Middleton became a princess on her wedding day, she kept her focus on those in need. Instead of accepting gifts, the royal couple asked well-wishers to donate to the Royal Wedding Charitable Gift Fund, which doled out money to 26 causes--from local community foundations to the arts, the Associated Press reported. The couple raised more than $1.6 million.
Elizabeth Taylor certainly spent a considerable amount of money on her eight weddings to beaus that included Richard Burton (twice), singer Eddie Fisher (pictured here) and U.S. Senator John Warner, Bloomberg reported, but the famed actress made sure that charities dear to heart benefitted from her many matrimonies. After People paid $1 million for exclusive photos from her 1991 wedding to Larry Fortensky, Taylor donated the proceeds to AIDS research, according to Forbes.
"The View" co-host Sherri Shepard and her husband Lamar Sally wanted a dream wedding, without the elaborate gifts. "Sal and I spoke about this and we decided we didn't need another toaster or a $3,000 ashtray," Shepard told the Huffington Post after her Aug. 13 wedding. The generous pair asked guests to, instead, donate to Embrace, an organization that encourages young people to give back and Hales Franciscan High School, a private all-male Catholic high school in Chicago catering to African Americans.
Though Hello! magazine spoiled OK! magazine's $1 million photo exclusive for the Catherine Zeta Jones/Michael Douglas 2000 wedding affair, the Daily Mail reported, the money will ultimately go to a good cause. The pair have set the funds aside for their young son, Dylan, to distribute to charity when he's old enough to decide where to donate, the news outlet revealed.
Nicole Kidman considered auctioning off her pearl colored Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga wedding gown to charity when she married Keith Urban back in 2006. But, the bombshell bride's benevolent act got derailed. Her teenage daughter, Isabella, told her mom that she wants to wear the dress to her wedding when she grows up, entertainmentwise.com reported.
Star Jones earned the title of "Bridezilla" back in 2004 when she married Al Reynolds and accepted free, expensive wedding favors and services, in return for plugging the lavish products, USA Today reported. The exchange may have been part of the reason Jones was ultimately dismissed from her morning show gig two years later, since viewers said they were turned off by both her shameless promotion and dramatic weight loss, Today reported. The couple filed for divorce in 2009, according to CBS.
