^^^^^^^^^
I posted that article earlier today, and found the pictures of Harry and the blonde rather OTT.

Are they spending New Year's Eve together?

We won't know until we get pictures. However I doubt we'll get them.

OMG...that's too much going on! The designers are British ( Marchesa ). Hopefully Kate will look much better . Years ago Nicole's mother bought a pearl diamond tiara specifically for her wedding. Wonder why she didn't wear it? It looked almost exactly like the one Lady Helen Taylor wore at her wedding.

Apparently Nicole wanted a dress reminiscent of Grace Kelly's - and I suppose she wanted her veil attached in a similar way.

they need to update William' hair situation on his model....
But the Queen one is freakishly similar. Amazing!

I still have a feeling that Catherine may have been offered, and accepted, the use of HM in house design team for her dress. This would account for the rumours of fittings at BP and brings into play the enticing possibility of some gorgeous old fabric HM has put by......

I think that would be wonderful if she did that. As we've seen from the day of their engagement announcement and the use of a family heirloom as an engagement ring, both William and Kate are sentimental about things that mean something to them. Perhaps Kate won't even have a new dress for the wedding but rather will have her mother's wedding dress altered to suit a cathedral wedding (I saw a picture of Carole and Mike on their wedding day somewhere but dang if I can find it again) with as Wymanda suggested, some beautiful material/lace that HM has in store.

I really bet that Kate is going to surprise us all on April 29th.

AFP: Royal wedding bells to chime in 2011

Sadly I feel this line is true..
Quote:
that brought some cheer to Britons, who were pleased at the announcement but not wildly enthusiastic about the ceremony itself, which will take place in London's Westminster Abbey.In November, pollsters ComRes found that two thirds of Britons were "indifferent" to the big day, despite their general attachment to the monarchy.
"As we go towards it, people will get more interested," predicted historian Jean Seaton.

In 1981 when the engagement of William's parents' was announced the enthusiasm was palpable and continued unabated to the day itself.

This engagement has been greeted with muted enthusiasm, some criticism and a general 'ho hum'.

Yes enthusiasm will be there on the day but this couple don't do anything to inspire. They just are.

I think the lack of the "fairytale glamour" which attached to William's parents' wedding is a very good thing. The RF needs a solid couple who will get on with the job they need to do, and it seems William and Kate are going to do just that.

I agree. With William's parents it was something that happened in such a short amount of time you got the impression of "love at first sight" and the impression that Charles was bowled over by Diana and she as much in love with him also with dreams of "happily ever after". With Will and Kate, they seem to have been together since forever, been through ups and downs and inside outs and stand in line together at the grocery store and do the ordinary things we do everyday. Although very much based in reality, I do think in years to come we'll perhaps be looking at the romance of the 21st century as these two work and grow together and become an integral part of the RF.

Ever since Diana died there has been a huge void. For me anyway. While no one will ever replace her, I think Kate is a good choice for 'a fresh face' for the BRF. I haven't been this excited since Sarah and Andrews wedding in 1986. I do wonder though, at all the negative comments I read when the engagement was first announced in the daily mail and other british tabloids. could it be that Americans are more excited about this Royal Wedding then the Brits?

As someone stated before, I also believe that their long courtship contributes. Diana and Charles's had a very short one, so every information that's was out about her came as a "surprise". Kate has been around for +/- 8 years.
The British don't appear to have the same enthusiasm about their marriage as William's parents, but if that contributes to a more peaceful life, well, great then! :)
