Here is a nice little gallery of William and Kate getting married: Chok i London: Kate og William gift i dag! | www.bt.dk

QEII is there too. - Sort of. I hope William will find some better fitting trousers for the 28.

Hope this is the right place to post this.

I was wondering if the jokes are mostly from other men?
I think men put much more importance on hair loss than women do.
It seems to me that most women don't truly care about whether a man is bald or not; his other traits are more important.

What does everyone think?
As I understand it, the loss of hair is thought to be a sign of virility in a man. So long as William doesn't start doing a comb-over, I'm not worried about his hair growing thinner.

That is absolutely correct and I've been thinking for ages what the wreath was made of - I originally thought it was orange blossom, but myrtle it is!

Royal wedding: Prince William reveals pre-wedding nerves | Mail Online

'We've spent a few pounds on Kate and William memorabilia and strategically secreted it around the place so he might open a locker and find stuff, or find his own face on a cushion or see his own face on a cup when you give him a cup of tea.'

I hope he has sleepless nights because he's excited and not because he's not sure. I'm beginning to wonder about Will marrying out of duty.

I am speechless cause its a little funny (April 1st has been weird to say the least)...but this couple and those pictures posted by Muhler are so...how do I say this in a somewhat nice way...so very tacky!

But its all in good fun so that's why its in a good way.

CrownPrincess5: I think most people getting married have nerves but that doesn't mean that he isn't sure. I have never been married but from what I can see (on the outside looking in) its a big change. I have friends who have lived together before marrying and swear that its different.

Add in the royal aspect, the press and getting married on television...I would be nervous as well.

Why? Does it amaze/surprise you that even William is nervous?

I totally agree. Of course, William is used to the spotlights and everything, but getting married in front of a .... million audience both in London and in front of the television plus the change that getting married brings along can spark nerves. "Will it all go well? Will I repeat my vows in the correct order? Will I be able to put the ring on her finger?" I assume that questions like these are very normal and aside from being a royal, William is a human being just like us.
It doesn't have to mean that he is unsure and I don't believe that at all.

I would be wrecked with nerves and I am not very good in dealing with stress. I don't think I would make a proper royal bride

When did I say I'm surprised he's nervous? What groom isn't nervous. I'm saying I hope his "sleepless nights" are because he's plain excited and not because he's unsure or scared. Getting married is an emotional time and even being unsure is something that happens to the best of men. It doesn't mean he doesn't love Kate but I think he's analyzing every little detail.

I don't know if you read or saw the video of Harry saying if not for media pressure they could have been married for 2 years. This has been address in the thread before, so I'll try not to repeat myself, but I see his nervousness more about the overall decision than having a cold feet. All marriages are important, but this one cares a bigger meaning to it. If he was marrying for duty, shouldn't he have done it sooner? besides, William seems to really not crave attention, you can notice from childhood videos up to now, so for someone like that to deal w/ the fact that a 1900 will be looking and paying attention at everything you do must be terrifying!

You didn't say that you are surprised he's nervous, it was my interpretation/translation from your "excited". My bad.

I assume that he is exactly what you state, excited. And of course, being unsure is what can happen to anyone but I don't believe that is the case with William at all. It never occurred to me so I was just surprised that the thought of the possibility did occur to you and especially your remark that you are beginning to wonder about William marrying out of duty.
I am not sure where that comes from, can you explain?

So do I understand correctly that you think he is over-analyzing?

I think I would do the same myself, it's what happens when one is a perfectionalist They do tend to think about every little thing (and can drive themselves crazy with it )

I second your post, that is how I see it as well.

He's getting married infront of the watching eye of millions. If that ain't daunting I don't know what is. Your every word and blink will be under scruntity, I'd be nervous too. Very nervous. I can imagine it doesn't feel very 'personal,' if you all know what I mean.
