Friday meant that most of us around the world, around 3 billion, woke up at odd hours to see the beloved and once good looking Prince William marry Catherine, now the Duchess of Cambridge.
The ceremony was beautiful, the service was religious and modern at the same time, and the dress was a marvel by Alexander McQueen. The cost, footed by the royal family and Kate’s parents will cost $17 million dollars (though cheaper than Princess Diana’s wedding at $70 million adjusted for inflation). What was really amazing? The hats.
Seriously, what is the obsession with hats? Specifically wearing hats at British weddings? Someone please explain this. In good humor, let me know the obsession with hat wearing at weddings in good ole England. Or maybe hat wearing is for old poofs?
Here are my favorite and somewhat terrifying hats from the Royal Wedding.
And last, an Indian touch at the Royal Wedding.
The wedding cake was gorgeous. Designed and created by Fiona Cairns. She is married to Kishore Patel who operates the company.
