Forget Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Issaquah needs a pair of royals to hold court at Issaquah Chamber of Commerce functions throughout 2011.

King and Queen Issaquah serve as goodwill ambassadors to the community. The duo presides at ribbon-cutting ceremonies, participates in the Independence Day and Salmon Days Festival parades, and is honored at chamber events.

Chamber members nominate candidates based on business and community leadership roles.

E-mail Queen Mum Joyce Adams at joyce.adams6@comcast.net to nominate a chamber member for the royal title. List the nominee and business, and include a brief explanation about why he or she deserves the honor. Nominations must be submitted by April 1.

The royal court is due to be crowned at the chamber’s annual gala. The location and date for the fête have not been determined.

Nathan Perea, a former City Council candidate and Issaquah Highlands resident, holds the King Issaquah title for 2010. Renee Zimmerman is Queen Issaquah.
