Skip to comments.Kate puts on brave face amid tacky spectacle

Off with their hats! It was bigger than the Super Bowl and as tacky as a legion of Elvis impersonators. Most of all, it was disturbingly white. Yesterday's little wedding of William and Kate, a worldwide showcase of dreadful hats, fad diets and an unusually sour, lemon-yellow-clad queen, was designed to prove to the common man that the royals, finally, were down with the people. But from the moment a triumphant Kate tiptoed with her dad onto the red carpet -- yes, she walked an actual red carpet to and from the altar -- I saw not a potential queen. Kate bore the look of a lithe human sacrifice. Or was she ready to faint from her starvation diet? Her mouth smiled. But in her eyes -- terror. Who can blame her? Kate waited eight years for this moment, outlasting an endless parade of bimbos and stunning babes, most of them blond, at least five of them wedding guests (go figure, Brits), to win the hand of the badly balding heir to the throne. "You look beautiful!" William said, sounding a trifle too surprised, as she sailed into his orbit. These had to be the second-most dorky words ever to emerge from the mouth of a prince, after Wills' dad's unfortunate musings on becoming Camilla's feminine hygiene product. Kate did her best to paint on a smile, as the claustrophobically reserved royal mob made asses of themselves, craning their necks to give Kate the once-over, like a hunk of meat. It was showtime! Perhaps it was a bad omen. Or a sign of water retention. But when it came time to be Mr. and Mrs. Or Duke and Duchess. Or whatever the heck this pair will call each other in the

Do we know that Andrea Peyser is English?
Yeah, notice how the writer had to mock William for balding? What’s up with that? Sheesh. Talk about vulgar.
Isn’t that Oprah’s Logo?
Um...it's the English royal family.
This is like saying that Will Smith's wedding was too black or Bobby Jindal's was too Indian.
I think Andrea was pissed because the Obama’s weren’t invited.
What a snarky POS reporter.
That is what I thought when I started reading the article, but she ended with that snide remark Brits in T-shirts and jeans gathered for days to catch a glimpse of the white folks riding to Buckingham Palace. That made me realize what she was referring to in the beginning.
1) Too many white people. Or virgins. Or whatever, white stuff. Peoples. Yuck.
2) The queen is ugly and yellow, like a lemon. Old rich people, yuck.
3) Bride is too skinny. Andrea hates skinny women. She must therefore be starving herself. Skinny women, yuck.
4) Bride is smiling, but Andrea sees terror in her eyes. Well, she is being watched by a billion people. But Andrea sees more than that! Human sacrifice to marriage! Gack!Yuck!
5) More snarky comments about too many blond, happy babies. White babies, more yuck.
6) Nasty comments about Charles idiot comments. Well, even a broken clock is right twice a day. Charles yuck.
7) Crowd is looking at Kate, therefore she is being treated like a piece of meat. Uhh, who is treating Kate like a piece of meat? Could it be our SNARKY reporteress? Can she not find a man who adores her, whom those about her would gaze on beamingly, happy in the thought that a couple might be taking a great dive into the hope of happiness?
Happy couples getting married, yuck, gack, choke! Poor Andrea. Poor, bitter Andrea.
I could go on but I'd have to give her nastiness a hit. Not doing.
Bitter, bitter, bitter. Yuck.
Not true...CAmilla married another man first...THEN Charles found Diana....who had various mental disturbances pretty much from the get go.
LOL - I have to completely agree with those hats! Can’t imagine what they were thinking unless they just wanted to look ridiculous.
Usually, Peyser is a halfway decent writer, but this didn’t warrant a click beyond the excerpt. It reads like something by the homely high school girl who didn’t get invited to the prom making fun of those who were.
She does look like geek from Alice in Wonderland! Ridiculous!
Camilla was Charles' first, true and apparently ONLY love, whom he was forbidden to marry, by his overbearing father and he never got over her.
There IS a difference between dating and/or sexual escapades and real, abiding love.
Someone on facebook described it as a uterus with two fallopean tubes.
I believe Andrea Peyser has some anger issues.
They are modeling some designer’s crap.
Think Mooshell and her outfits (the sweater with the buttons out of alignment, boob belt, black widow... ugh)
