Prince William And Kate Middleton’s Wedding: Did You Get Your Save-The-Date Fax?

Planning a royal wedding is no joke—Kate Middleton has resigned from her post at her parent’s party supply company to attend to all the assorted details of her April 29th nuptials. Already, we’re a little worried that the event might be stuck in the ’80s—Kate is wearing Diana’s decade-of-decadence engagement ring, the couple’s engagement photos look eerily like the ones Princess Charles and Diana took back in the day, and the wedding is going down in Westminster Abbey which … booorrrring. And now we hear that the Buckingham Palace staff has sent out save-the-date notices to the royal families of Europe—by fax machine. I mean, couldn’t they just have sent carrier pigeons?

No Servants For Prince William And Kate Middleton For 3 Years

Prince Charles is rumored to have a servant who squirts his toothpaste on his toothbrush. But Prince William and Kate Middleton will forgo such extravagances — for three years at least. The engaged couple will do their own laundry and cook their own meals for the remainder of the prince’s RAF military service, according to a royal source. That’s how long the couple intends to live on weekends in a cottage William rented in the town of Anglesey. “Prince William is not into extravagance and, like any other young officer in the armed forces, that is how he chooses to live his life,” said the source. “He and [Kate] live without domestic staff and they wouldn’t do it any other way. That’s the life they want to lead.” Of course, William and Kate have 24-hour body guards protecting them, but otherwise they live without maids or butlers. At least these kids don’t have any full-time staff; somehow I don’t imagine Prince William scrubbing his own toilet once a week.

Woman Quits Her Job To Become Professional Kate Middleton Look-Alike

Kate Middleton is not the only tall brunette with shiny-shiny hair to die for. A British pharmaceutical assistant, Kate Bevan, 21, who bears a striking resemblance to the princess-to-be, has quit her job to become a full-time Kate Middleton look-alike. “I went out to buy a sandwich and I was stopped four times by people in the street,” Kate Bevan told People. (Because the fiancée of the future king of England totally goes out and buys lunch on her own.) “Nearly everyone who comes through the pharmacy door makes a comment and gawps in total shock,” she added. She is now taking dialect lessons to lose her West Midlands accent and sound more like the posh princess-to-be. We know Elvis impersonators warble “Heartbreak Hotel” and chomp on peanut butter and banana sandwiches. But what does a princess impersonator do — wear big silly hats? Roll around in piles of priceless jewels? [People] Keep reading »

British Couples Are Pissy Prince William And Kate Middleton Marrying On “Their” Weekend

Britain apparently has a nation full of Emn Haddad-Friedmans. Who is Emn Haddad-Friedman, you ask? She was the bride who planned her wedding for July 31st in Rhineback, New York, the same weekend as Chelsea Clinton. Weddings are stressful enough without worrying the Clintons stole your caterers! After Prince William announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton and set the wedding date for April 29, 2011, couples across Britain who chose the same day started fretting. Some Brits are really nutso about the royal family and the prince’s wedding will be a big enough deal to skip weddings of people they actually, you know, know. Personally, I think if someone chooses to stand outside Westminster Abbey for a peek at Kate’s bridal gown, or parks in front of the telly for the televised ceremony, it’s one less d-bag’s dinner and drinks you need to pay for.

Tesco Knocks Off Kate Middleton’s Engagement Dress For $25

Another day, another royal wedding knockoff: The European chain store Tesco (like an American Kmart) has quickly brought a cheapo replica of princess bride Kate Middleton‘s engagement dress to the shelves. Kate’s royal blue dress from the designer Issa cost roughly $630, while the lighter blue, shorter-sleeved Tesco version is a mere $25. I don’t really think the knockoff looks anything like the original. But then again, neither do those copycat engagement rings. When they manage to knock off a rich, handsome prince, then I’ll be impressed. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
