Observations of a Royal Wedding

April 29, 2011

Prince William and Kate

I think I know who wears the pants suit in that family. Although… Prince William does carry the sword.

It’s somewhat unfortunate that the royals planned the wedding to coincide with “Wear an Ugly Hat to a Wedding” day. (I wonder if Aunt Clara knows her hats have been stolen?)

The rear license plate on the Aston-Martin that the Prince drove his new bride from Buckingham Palace to Clarence House read — JU5T WED… How quaint!

U.K Crime did not take a holiday in reverence to the royal nuptials.  According to the Telegraph, the total number of arrests is now 52. Of those, 13 arrested were held at Charing Cross and Covent Garden after being found in possession of climbing equipment – helmets – and anti-monarchy placards, suggesting that they planned to climb a building and unfurl banners.

I was very surprised to see Prince William paying homage to that wonderfully camp puppet show, The Thunderbirds, with his uniform selection. The resemblance is uncanny!

As Wedding fever sweeps the nation, I have to wonder how much ale will be hoisted in the name of the Royal Couple, the cake, the dress, the car, the Queen, and what ever else the throng can find to hoist an ale over.

Nice dress… Big Cake… National holiday… What’s not to love about a wedding bash of this scope.

It truly is the sign of the times when the Royal Wedding has its own official website. Not to mention the hundreds of other, non-official sites: http://www.officialroyalwedding2011.org/

Even Google got into the mix with their official “Google Doodle” of the day.

    The best part about this wedding is all the hats, lol! Some of them were indeed ghastly, but some of them I would totally sport. On Easter morning. In church. If I was Baptist.

    It’s nice to see a royal couple who actually appear to be very much in love. Yay for them, I say.

    i see zero resemblance……what i see is a happy individual on his way to get married.

    and a royal wedding is always put on with great pomp and circumstance….nobody does pomp like the royals.

    Some of those hats looked downright dangerous, besides being hideous. I wouldn’t want to be caught DEAD in some of those. They also probably blocked the view of some of the quests. lol
