My observations from the Royal Wedding
First of all, I think I want to change my name to Pippa. I've always hated my name, and I think Pippa could be fun.
And good grief, no, I didn't wake up early to watch the whole thing though I did get up in time to watch them walk back up the aisle after signing the register. My first thought was, "Prince William is bald." Though not as unattractive as his father, he's not quite the picture of the fairy tale handsome prince, in my opinion. Prince Charming had more hair.
While I normally hate PDAs, or at least really blatant ones make me ill, the bride and groom barely touched one another. Even afterwards, such as the carriage ride back to the palace. They didn't even sit close to each other. It just seemed odd to me.
I saw a recap today and the final song - "God Save the Queen." Everyone was singing. Everyone except the queen. My questions are, A) Is that weird for her? B) Is she not supposed to sing the national anthem with everyone else? C) Is she as much of a sourpuss as she looks?
Thank goodness we don't have the hat phenomena in the US. Seriously. Thank goodness we don't wear hats like this. Rupert Everett on the TLC coverage was hilarious talking about them. He especially hated Posh Spice's hat with the "antenna". The rest of the world calls her Victoria Beckham these days, but he still intentionally calls her Posh Spice. And as the "British Gentlemen" they kept referring to him as, he sure was dressed casually. So help me, he had to have been the only person in the entire UK yesterday that was wearing jeans and a sweatshirt.
Now onto my hat commentary.
