I confess I am one of the 2 billion people who woke up at 3:00 a.m. today to watch the Royal Wedding. Tease me unmercifully, but my mom and I watched Charles & Diana wed, and I had a pajama party with friends for Diana’s funeral, so I was not about to miss the wedding of Kate and Will.
Two things made getting up to watch worthwhile.
1. Kate and Will seemed sincere when they took their vows unlike Charles who didn’t love Diana and Diana who barely knew Charles.
2. The HATS! Need I say more. Some were quite chic, others, well let’s just try to say something nice like “Now THAT’S a HAT!”; or “Lovely weather today. We’re fortunate that the wind isn’t blowing!”
It appears many of those head pieces, particularly the one worn by Princess Beatrice (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/gossip/2011/04/princess-beatrice-hat-facebook-royal-wedding-philip-treacy-hat.html), were designs inspired from the movie, The Grinch.
