Now let me preface this by saying I'm not exactly anti monarchy, I am English, I lived in England for the majority of my life, and, to a certain extent I enjoy the pomp and circumstance of this tradition. I reconcile my monarchy appreciation with my somewhat anarchistic side by knowing in my heart of hearts, if the Queen were to use her "ultimate power" it'd be off with her head in a flash.
I think what's making the hullabaloo over "The Royal Wedding" (the phrase alone is beginning to sound like a euphemism) worse, is the coverage in the US. If I hear one more person jump up and yell "crumpets", "govnor" or "cuppa tea?" one more time, it might result in actual bodily harm. You've all been warned.
What's more, the whole ordeal is so horribly inorganic. Despite everyone's adoration of the future Princess of Wales..or dare I say Queen…I feel as if she's the most conniving, maniplulative monarch to join the realm since the Evil Queen Grimhilde from Snow White. You realise St Andrews (the university William attended) had the highest influx of female suitors, sorry students, ever, the year William started? And that Kate Middleton was one of them?
It was so horribly pre-meditated I fail to see the romance in it. So, with that in mind please feel free to see this as my "Anti Royal Wedding Post" – go right ahead, and the following outfits are for those as bitter as me, that will actually have to sit through the ordeal.
