    Good news for those who have been craving some more Royal Wedding glitter. There’s another one this weekend.  It’s the event many thought would never happen: the marriage of Prince Albert of Monaco, the 53-year-old bachelor head of state of the tiny but rich principality on the Cote D’Azur, and Charlene Wittstock, a South African Olympic swimmer 20 years his junior.  The Grimaldi family has ruled Monaco for more than 800 years, and has featured on the global glamour map ever since Hollywood arrived in the form of the last bride to marry into the family, Prince Albert’s mother Grace...

    He is the prince who never grew up – a one-time playboy and son of the Hollywood star Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier of Monaco. She is a working-class South African 20 years his junior, a former Olympic swimmer and the daughter of a photocopier salesman. When Prince Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock marry this week in a two-day populist extravaganza in the wealthy Mediterranean enclave, tens of thousands of tourists are expected to flood in to witness the ultimate "prince and commoner" wedding. The American rockers the Eagles will belt out Hotel California in a special gig for...

  • Dear Bride: 10 wedding complaints from your bridesmaid

    06/04/2011 2:23:31 PM PDT · by Feline_AIDS · 132 replies
    There are few places someone can go to lament the loss of traditional values like FR. Today I'm lamenting the death (or terminal illness) of the sensible American wedding. As a 24-year-old American girl, I attend lots of nuptials, and because of familial obligations certain brides couldn't eschew, I've even been an occasional bridesmaid. Every subsequent wedding I attend seems to be the next in a terrifying sequence of tacky one-upmanship. It's as though each bride has a "ridiculous counter" that ticks up and up during the planning until true perfection of ridiculousness is realized on the big day. Here...

    Remember the laughs -- and gasps -- that greeted Princess Beatrice when she showed up for the royal wedding wearing that, well, unusual hat? Well now the young royal is getting the last laugh. Beatrice, 22, put the blush-colored "fascinator" up for auction on eBay, and it's now been snapped up by an anonymous bidder -- for $130,000! According to People, the princess is donating the cash to two charities: UNICEF and Children in Crisis, the later of which was started by Beatrice's mother Sarah Ferguson (a.k.a. "Fergie," the Duchess of York) to provide education to children in some of...

  • Who Will Design Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress? (romantic confection, twinkly vintage lace?)

    04/24/2011 5:45:21 AM PDT · by Liz · 64 replies · 1+ views
    Rumor has it that Kate Middleton has picked British designer-to-the-stars Phillipa Lepley to create her wedding gown. Romantic flowers, majestic ballgowns and twinkly vintage lace are the way a British magazine described Phillipa Lepley’s 2011 bridal collection. With British bookmakers betting on Lepley, what will the London-based haute couture designer create for Middleton when she marries Prince William? “Kate will want to look drop dead elegant yet not over the top,” a fashion source says. So far, Lepley have made no comment, but Brits are abuzz over the designer who may create the wedding gown for England’s future princess.

Royal Collection Apps are the latest way that the Royal Household is engaging with new media and follows the successful launch of the British Monarchy’s presence on Facebook and Flickr last year,...
  • Royal wedding: the Wills & Kate loo seat... and other tacky souvenirs

    It’s the perfect royal wedding souvenir for someone feeling a bit flush – a Prince William and Kate Middleton loo seat. The tacky treasure is just one of thousands of pieces of memorabilia to flood the market ahead of the big day on April 29. William and Kate must have guessed their faces would end up on T-shirts, crockery, postcards and fridge magnets. Buckingham Palace even produced its own official souvenir range with the couple’s initials. But no one could have predicted the extent to which their image has been used worldwide to sell everything from sick bags to condoms.
