Recap: Post-Wedding 'Itis

You asked for it, so here it is--the BBW's take on the Royal Wedding!  Sorry for the delay, but *yawn* I just had to take a nap...

First, let me just say that I wish Will and Kate all the love and happiness that the world can offer.  I thought she was a beautiful bride and that her groom was truly dashing (although balding fast)!  Now in my best English accent, onto everyone else:

Prince Harry - You certainly are one big ham sandwich...did you stay up all night partying again? 

Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice - In the words of Simon Cowell, "Dreadful."  You two should know better than to let your Mom to dress you:

HRH Charles, Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall - Not bad, father and step-mother of the groom.  You two are still quite perfectly bland...

Ma and Pa Middleton - In case you need to come up with a clever retort to all the references to your family background as commoners...just take inspiration from that great 80s hip hop philosopher Kool Moe Dee, cross your arms with a bit of attitude and blast off with 'how ya like me now' (and if you really want to make the point, throw in a Flava Flav 'boyee' at the end).

Sister Pippa - Did we get a little too much spray tan, love?  And aren't we just a wee bit too old to be called by the cutesy nickname now that we are related to the future Queen?  But we loved the dress!

Queen Elizabeth II - Everybody loves the happy Grandma!  And how great is it that even your husband has to sing God Save the Queen?

The Cartwheeling Verger - Yes, EVERYBODY saw that!

The Choir of Westminster Abbey - I needed a little help on thanks to a little online research I now know that it is an all-male choir of about 30 boys and 12 adult men (because I was wondering why no girls).  However, still unanswered is why were some of the younger singers were dressed like the miniature Beefeaters.

Hats vs. Fascinators - Quite possibly the most interesting aspect to the entire day.  Being an old school BBW who grew up in the church, I know a little sumthin' sumthin' about hats, and they were absolutely fabulous!  But those fascinators were also a hoot, so this might be a tie.  My vote for best hat was worn by Zara Philips, daughter of Princess Anne:

One of the best fascinators was worn by Sophie, Countess of Wessex (and wife of 100th in line to the crown Prince Edward):

And just one last case you were wondering if a BBW's royal wedding would have been this over the top and fantabulous, the answer can be found here:

Cheerio mates!

  1. I remember my niece who wandered out loud why these people wear hats wrong (she was referencing the lopsided orientation of the hats). I imagine it was quite unsettling for her to see that these people would go to an event as big as this (although I doubt she grasps just how important the occasion really was) and not wear their hats "properly".
