Fun. I have it DVRed.
Second picture thought bubble from the groom: "What have I done?"
Third picture, thought bubble from both both: "WTF?"
UK History ping
Can’t wait. I’ll be up all night.
Watching “Real Housewives” rerun shows from now until 2am on Bravo, then switching over to BBC America.
I guess I’ll record from BBC America — I was going to use Fox and then found out it was being hosted by S. Smith... No Thanks!!!
Silvie, TLC has some good stuff on, and BBC America had a killer program about Diana’s jewelry. I’m getting into the mood....
Why has nobody mentioned this before now? You’d think some news types would think this is a big deal.
That child is Winston Churchill’s great-granddaughter, so you might be right.
I forgot about TLC. I saw their commercial about the Royal Wedding programming when I was watching “Extreme Couponing” last week. Will switch over.
Is that Clementine Hambro?
Mr Coldone cannot understand the big ta-doo about this!!!!
That name has always stuck with me, LOL.
I see that one of Kate’s little bridesmaids has the last name Armstrong-Jones, is she the daughter of Sarah Armstrong-Jones from Diana’s group?
Scratch that, she’d have a different last name, I presume. Must be a niece, though.
Royal/Monarchy History PING!
TLC had a great program Sunday night with India Hicks, who was one of Diana’s bridesmaids, interviewing the Emmanuels, and a bunch of other people involved in that wedding. I like India Hicks’ design blog so I really enjoyed the show. The tone of it was not screaming tabloids, but a little more calm and detail-oriented and thoughtful. Her mother was the Queen’s bridesmaid and so they both got out their bridesmaid’s dresses and compared them. Pretty cool.
I think this little girl is the daughter of Princess Margaret’s son.
Love the Housewives series! Thought the east coast feed started at 4 A.M.
Since I am now residing on the Left Coast, and am a lot more jaded about such things, I plan to sleep right through Wills and Kate's wedding. Having said that, I do wish them a long life of love and happiness. They seem like very nice young people.
Thanks for the ping Silvie. I am actually moving to a different apartment tomorrow morning, so will be electronic media challenged for awhile. I wish I could watch in real time, if only the historical significance.. kind of like the last space shuttle launch :)
Yes and it snapped shortly before that wedding requiring a standby royal jeweler to make on the fly repairs.
UGH.... Why does anybody really care?
Sure looks like it. Beautiful!!!
See you in the morning! EARLY!!!
The Queen looked lovely at her wedding in 1947, not artificial or overly made up.
You can see the gap from the ‘main’ spike and the spike immediately to our left of it. If it snapped the gold kt must have been 21+.
Some of us are speculating on what the old, new, borrowed and blue will be. This tiara qualifies as both old and borrowed, but since the Queen seems to like Kate, it won’t be borrowed anymore if Kate wears it: I’m thinking she’ll hold it for the next Princess.
yes she did.
When the Queen met Nia Vardalos the star of the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding she obviously knew something about marrying Greeks. :)
And, of course, we have the instant classic T-Mobile Royal Wedding:
I’d rather watch a rerun of “Keeping Up Appearances.”
I’m looking forward to it. I think William and Harry are good young men. I think their mother would be very oroud and would have loved Kate.
We need a feel-good event and distraction with all that is going on over here. I’ll be up early. :-)
I hope Kate has come up with a better looking wedding dress than that flouncy, ruffley thing that Diana wore. Or was forced to wear, perhaps.
isn't your cup of tea? :)
I can't wait.
How do I get BBC America, workerbee? Is that a DTV channel? I tried to look it up but couldn’t find it.
Even worse than Shep is having to choose between uber lib Matt LLLLauer or the ever breathless lib Diane Sawyer...or gushing Babawa with her really bad cheek implants...or Obamanot Robin Roberts!!! HELP!
Maybe I’ll skip it..or tune in to old Twilight Zone reruns.
