The Royal Wedding

My sister, the mogul, bought my mum the 'Knit your own Royal Wedding' book a week or so ago. Mum managed to knit and post to the mogul, just in time for the wedding today. From left, Prince Harry - which apparently required the knitter to use pink wool for his delicate skin. He has a patch of ginger under the hat. Camilla - resplendent in old lady purple. Kate - in wedding dress sporting a beaded fluffy number. Wills, The Queen and one corgi. All the clothes can come off, ohh-errr. Kate also has another dress to change into. Thank god - because we all know that Harry will have them going all night long with his naughty ginger shenanigans.

Oh, I'm a sucker for a wedding. I love the pomp, circumstance and tradition, especially of the royal weddings. I've been watching various royal shows for the past few weeks. I'm such an old fart and have been exclusively watching SBS and ABC and learning all about King Christian the 9th of Denmark who is referred to as the father-in-law of Europe. Apparently the modern day royals can all be traced back to old King Christian. What a guy!!!

It's wedding fever in these parts. We have a night of celebrations planned. Although we only have one creepy Kate mask to share as someone misjudged when the Willy mask was coming out!!!! We have lots of delicious petits fours planned including the classy; butterfly cakes and the oh so royal caramel crowns. Miss 8 has downloaded the latest royal ipod app, where you can dress the royal family for the big day. The corgi even gets accessorises and you get to pick the song for the wedding march. We have even heard a rumour about a party going down where all the lovely ladies are going to be tuning into the telecast wearing their wedding dresses. Love it!! Have fun out there royal watchers! Enjoy the nuttiness for all it is - fun!
