Royal Weddings

Like lots of others I watched the recent wedding of William and Catherine (I don’t understand how Catherine ever became shortened to Kate, shouldn’t it be Cate?).

How kind it is of the “British Monarchy” to have their own Flickr account http://www.flickr.com/photos/britishmonarchy/tags/rw2011/

I thought William looked spectacular, Harry a little lost in his oversize jacket, but cheeky as usual.  Catherine looked a bit stiff, though who wouldn’t be a bit nervous getting married in front of billions of people. A few people have commented that her make-up looked a bit overdone, I think she looked pretty normal (for her), except that the contrast of her white wedding dress overemphasized it.

Of course there was the unexpected star of the show Pippa’s backview.

I did enjoy the spectacle, however my farourite Royal Wedding is still the 2004 marriage of Mary & Frederik.  Probably because of the smaller scale, it seemed that viewers were just looking at the proceedings from their own seat.  Plus it didn’t hurt that Frederik cried!  Today (in Australia) is actually their 7th wedding anniversary.

Take a look at this great panorama picture of their wedding http://www.panoramas.dk/fullscreen3/f20.html

Someone with better photoshop skills than mine spent some idle moments creating the following images.

Just how did Beatrice get that ugly hat to stay put?  Superglue??  Staples??
