The Royal Wedding
« on: April 26, 2011, 07:23:13 AM »
Anyone watching or following along?

I confess, this is so exciting!  I can't wait for Friday lol.  I think I'm getting a few girls together to have a tea party with our daughters Saturday and watch the DVR of it.

I have my fascinator, and I need to go out and buy ingredients for mimosas.

How long do you think it will be?

I get up that early anyhow, but I was hoping to make it to work by 6 since it's Friday.

I fully believe Kate Middleton lives in the woods with 7 little old men and that birds and rabbits talk to her. Plus, when I was in London last year I told my husband I couldn't come back because Prince Harry found me and needed me to be his plus 1 for an upcoing engagement.

LMBO Holly!

I have no idea how long it will be but you bet I'm watching every bit of it that I can.  What's a fascinator?  Is this some Royal thing?

I just love Kate Middleton, can you imagine handling that spotlight?  And doing it gracefully?  That girl has got some steel ovaries

Is she required to always wear something on her head for public events?

I think it's popular in the UK among the upper class. Just a guess, though.

Love those hats!

I'm so uninformed, can we watch it live?   or how?

Thanks Holly :)

Tara I believe it's live on the BBC channel.  Middle of the night US time.  Gotta check tonight and will let you know.  The BBC channel has been running all kinds of Kate & William documentaries too.

I just can't get Kate Plus 8 out of my mind

The entire affair is being handled gracefully.... I hope she doesn't have the mil issues that the last princess had.

I guess if she has any problems, it'll be GMIL issues.  :P Talk about intimidation. Haha.

I think her StepMIL has to toe a fine line too as part of the royal family, and given her history with the Prince. They might wind up to be good friends...my guess is they can relate.

According to the gossip rags StepMIL is very jealous.  Something about their marriage bumps Camilla down in line to seventh royal lady or something.  And there's talk of Prince William being placed 1st in line for succession of the throne.  The Royals are concerned about Prince Charles and Camilla's image and they have poor ratings among the British.

It's going to get exciting!

LOL, I did some research on this...and I think...

If Prince Charles does become King Regnant...he can change her Duchess Consort status to Queen Consort if he likes.

Plus, we're not sure what Kate's title will be yet, do we? Or did I miss that part.

Do you really see Charles ever becoming King.. obviously he isn't going to outlive the Queen :)  I don't think anyone will .. how old is that lady?

I was reading this rather funny article: "Make Charles King for 1 Day." It goes on to say that it's a little unfair that his mother is living forever and that he is now not so young himself. Since he was expecting the title one day, they figured she should get it for 24 hours.

LOL.

I remember when the now queen married Phillip. We are the same age.  ;D ;D ;D
