The 'Royals' Get Spoofed.

We'll be the first to admit that the oh-so-serious nature of the Royal Wedding can be a bit much. Credit T-Mobile for finding a fun way to poke fun at the hype.

The impending nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton get spoofed in this two-minute ad featuring look-alikes for Prince Charles, Prince Harry, Queen Elizabeth, Camilla, and, of course, the happy couple.

So which horse did they use to play the part of Camilla?

Camilla is a permanent fixture in the royal family now. Time to get used to it:) Besides, it’s kind of nice for women to know that a prince’s true love might look like Camilla and not Diana.

I thought that T-Mobile went to a great deal of effort and expense for this ad. I was able to “identify” many of the royals as they boogied down the aisle. In England, I’ll bet this is a real hit.

I’ve actually been to silly weddings like this so I can identify with that too.

Charlie dated Camilla long before he met Diana. They played games, Camilla got fed up and married someone else. Diana and Camilla’s husband paid the price for the two jack a**e* game playing. I won’t give those two selfish people credit for anything.

That’s fun. I don’t like the thing with him running his hand over her body. That kind of thing is always inappropriate, I think. But it’s pretty funny.

The guy who plays lookalike William must be making some good money this year.

The hand thing was a little disconcerting, but, for this day and age, tastefully done. (omg!) lol

I wasn’t wild about it either, but, unfortunately, it didn’t shock me. But I loverd the rest of the video. Camella and William were spot on. I didn’t like the one spoofing Charles. Didn’t look too much like him except for the ears.

It wasn’t just the royals, the guy playing Rowan Williams, the ABC, was spot on

I thought the real show stopper was the guy playing Prince Harry. He had the looks and the moves.

Oddly, the older guy in the uniform who just walked in all dignified, not going along with the frivolity was a nice touch. Made it seem more authentic, less of a cartoon. Who was that supposed to be?

The older guy alone was Prince Andrew (I think). The other older guy in uniform with a woman was Prince Edward (I think). I thought a saw a youngish version of Princess Anne, paired up with another woman.

I must admit to not knowing who the two young women in the short dresses are. (chagrin)

The first two girls are supposed to be Beatrice and Eugenie, daughters of Andrew. The older woman is supposed to be Anne with her daughter Zara.

I said the other older guy in uniform - he was actually wearing a swallow tail tux.

LOL is usually just an expression, but in this case I did laugh out loud, enough to make the dog get off the sofa with a worried look in his eyes.

Nice way of putting it. Thanks. Yes. I'm not mad about either one of them, but the fact is that he has loved that rather plain woman for forty years, so she must have something. And therefore the rest of us have hope that someone might see and love us, even if we are no longer young and beautiful.
