    She looks like a walking door knocker. I want to knock on her head and yell, "anyone home!?!"

    Actually her headgear looks more like an inverted toilet seat with flagella. But who am I to judge?

    I love how even the people who are normally disillusioned with news like this are picking at it like crows.

    I'm absurd, because I am both pro-scottish independence and pro-monarchy. Can't beat the statistics.

    I have to love the fallacy mainly foreigners hold regarding the true profit the monarch earns the UK.

    It should be noted that the latest take on 'direct Monarchy tourism earnings' was 500MM from using 'monarch based facilities/activities'.
    That is a very good clip and I've got to say I agree, the united kingdom isnt very magical and the house of windsor is really a bunch of germans, as opposed to any of the native royal houses which are disappeared altogether. The UK proper was the creation of a Scottish lineage if I'm not wrong.

    Anyway, the opportunity to create a socialist united states of the UK which was the only ever rival dream never materialised, in no small part because the native socialists were quickly drowned out by the din of Russio-soviet lovers and haters.

    Lol .. You can't even tell Posh is due to drop (apologies, posh doesn't push, i mean c-section) in the summer. She must be 4-5 months pregnant yet she wears those heels .. Give her credit for not looking like a fat glowing proud yummy mummy to be *sigh*

    They are nice shoes though. Lol

    I know I'm late returning to comment but it's funny how the sentiments turned from annoyance before the wedding to happiness/love after the wedding. Anyways, I knew it would be that way!

    A few of my thoughts:

    1) Her dress and the whole wedding couldn't be more PERFECT, it was amazing. Loved it, loved it, loved it!
    2) All the crazy hats in the congregation were cracking me up. lol
    3) When they were younger, Prince William was cuter, now Prince Harry is cuter, but Prince W will make better babies though. (yes I think that way, the baby-making will begin right away).
    4) Kate Middleton seems ISFJ. How amazing is it that she will one day be the Queen... Queen Catherine!!!

    Out of all the hats, these two were nice, suited the ladies who wore them as well as fitting well with their outfits:
    Hers was definitely the best of the slideshow (Princess Letizia)! The whole ensemble looked very pulled-together and flattering.

    What struck me in looking at the pics was 1) there were some super-boring designer suits all around. Looked like the shapeless stuff everyone wore in the 80s. 2) Hat aside, I liked Beatrice's suit-coat quite a bit. 3) I love that Fergie's girls look like the evil stepsisters to Kate's Cinderella 4) Hats can really age a person if the wrong one is chosen, and they don't suit everyone. 5) Diana's nieces are all stunning.
