No. Prince Harry maybe. Johnny Depp more likely.

That doesn't look at all like Kate Middleton. Is that what he told you?

With all the attention, if I were in Kate's shoes, I'd be running! Looks like the Brits have already thought of that...

Turned on the telly this morning in time to see some of the procession from the abbey to the palace (ho hum, just another drive in a horse-drawn carriage!). Wow, all the high stepping horses, the traditions in the uniforms from the livery to the beefeaters lining the route to the prince's Irish guard red. Pomp and circumstance everywhere--protocol must abound in who is doing what, and I'll be looking up why some horses are black and some are white! A happy event being watched around the world. Go for it, young lovers!

Next we'll catch the countdown to the space shuttle launch this afternoon.

I'd bet there was a lot of Beefeaters lining the route...

I'd trade places with any 29 year old who doesn't have to w*rk. Flying helicopters isn't work is it? I'm sure the "sex with Kate" part wouldn't be, at least if I was really 29.

I loved Kate's dress! Very elegant and reminiscent of the one worn by Princess Grace Kelly (of Philadelphia...a born and bred PA girl).
I have gotten home from w*rk and am having my Pimm's and diet lemon lime soda over ice while I soak in the recap commentary of the day. Okay, okay...I have a boring life!

I absolutely never watch daytime TV and today I was just glued to it . I loved her dress & the tiara was perfect . I also loved all the hats even the crazy ones . The drive in the convertible was so cute . This was so much better than watching Charles & Diana ( hated the dress ) fumble into matrimony .

They said the tiara (which I loved, too, for it's low profile and simplicity...very jeune fille) was a gift from King George VI to his daughter, the present Queen Elizabeth, on her 18th birthday.
I subconsciously knew Charles and Diana were doomed when back when they were first interviewed upon their engagement the interviewer asked "So are you in love?" and they both looked taken back. Diana responded, with eyes downcast, "Of course!" and Charles responded "Whatever love is"
In 1981 I scheduled my impacted wisdom teeth removal the same day as the Royal Wedding in order to have the day off from work. My poor husband arrived home from his work at the end of the day to find me with chipmunk cheeks strung out on Percosets and ice cream and jabbering about huge wedding gowns. What a memory!

I finally had to explain to Gary that this wedding was like the ultimate signing day for football and then he got it and slowly backed away from the family room were I was switching channels to get the best coverage !

I would agree to sleep with Kate, or her sister, or her mother. But only as a guest.

Come to think of it, has anyone seen her grandmother?

Ha

Kate looked stunning. The dress was perfect, very reminiscent of Grace Kelly's in 1957(?). Some fashion commentators have said it had "nothing new" but it would be hard to beat that dress for sheer elegance.

And then there were the cousins. Ewww!

I absolutely agree with the comments about Kate and her dress looking perfect - and the "what on earth were they thinking" qualities of Prince Andrew's daughters' hats. Victoria Beckham was a bit too glamorous - not really surprising, but still not quite appropriate in my estimation.

The Queen was perfect. She may not be the warm smiling personality that her Mum was, but she has been unswerving in her role for so long now and I suspect has a great deal of heart.

I would not trade places with William. I tend to have a very private life, and being a public figure would entail many sacrifices. But Kate is stunning...
