Another Royal Wedding

As you know, I LOVE a good royal wedding.  This weekend one was held in Monaco, but I just wasn't feeling it.  Prince Albert wed the now, Princess Charlene (Princess Charlene?!?!)  in a civil ceremony on Friday and then a church ceremony on Saturday.  I've been hearing the bragging from Monaco since April that this was going to be so grand that it put the April nuptials of William and Catherine to shame.  To that I say, "Ha!".

First, I thought the whole "Fairy Tale" was just tainted.  I mean when 10 days before your wedding the bride to be was trying to flee the country because it appears that you have recently fathered a THIRD love child, and you had her passport confiscated to keep her from flying home to South Africa...this doesn't seem like a good start.

I also wasn't crazy about her dress.  I know, it was an Armani dress and all, but I didn't like it.  The white was too white.  The beading looked cheap.  To me, I thought it looked like something one would find in the $99 dress sale from David's Bridal.
The cake.  What to say about that cake.  All together now.... GAUDY!
And people claimed she cried tears of joy...
I say likely tears of another kind...
She's still crying!

That venue, was no Westminster Abbey...

They had a party that night with a change of clothes...
And it's just sad how old and weathered Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie look now...

Ugh.  Just no contest to the April nuptials of W&C, who by the way, have managed to shine on their tour through North America in the past few days.
I find watching William & Kate make their way across Canada far more exciting than the sham of a wedding in Monaco.  Did you see them in cooking school?  Love it!

Charlene looked absolutely miserable the entire time. (Although, I probably would too if I were marrying him). Poor girl. Also, that cake was Tacky with a capital T. Sheesh. Does not even compare to Prince William's wedding. (And, I agree - Kate is rocking the North American tour; BEAUTIFUL!!!)

Happy 4th to you!

I agree Charlene looked miserable the entire time- and who can blame her? I fear this is all doomed for failure.

I saw that Tommy Smythe's (of Sarah House/Design Inc. fame) sister designed the jacket Kate wore when she got on the plane to Canada. Just a little trivia for you. LOVE Will and Kate!
