Speculation about Kate Middleton’s wedding dress has sent the world into a frenzy. Who will design it? What’s the price tag? Does it look like Diana’s? Will the train be 10 feet or 10,000? Speculating about William’s outfit has proved slightly less exciting. Since he is expected to wear his Royal Air Force uniform, there’s only one question, really: will his jacket be red or blue?
But hey, whatever the color, military jackets are always in style. After the jump, a selection of William-inspired options that would look just as cute with jeans and a tank top as they would at the royal wedding. Keep reading »

We’re happy for princess-to-be Kate Middleton. Really we are. While we could do without the 24-hour news coverage of her dress/diet/ex-boyfriends/previous family homes, who doesn’t love a good royal wedding? By all accounts, Prince William and Kate seem like they’ve thought this through and are ready for their very public walk down the aisle.

But Papa John’s in the UK is making sure anyone can see Will and Kate staring back at them from a pizza.

With the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton just over two weeks away, Buckingham Palace is letting out daily updates of the impending nuptials. Few bits of news have proved as controversial as the announcement that the future king will forgo a wedding band after he’s married.That decision hasn’t been well received by the press or the public.

With Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding inching closer, speculation is reaching a fever pitch about who has been included on the 350-person guest list. Famous folks like Elton John, Guy Ritchie, and David and Victoria Beckham made the cut, naturally. But the British press has recognized a few other familiar faces who received invitations. Two of Kate’s exes are on the guest list—Rupert Finch, her boyfriend at St. Andrews before William, and Willem Marx, who she dated as a teenager. And William has invited four exes—Jecca Craig (his assumed first love), Rose Farquhar (his first girlfriend), Arabella Musgrave (who he dated before college), and Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe (who he supposedly made a play for in 2004). That’s a whole lot of former paramours who’ll be watching the couple say “I do.” Many people subscribe strictly to the rule: no exes at a wedding because it can be awkward for the couple, not to mention strange for the ex. But others make exceptions since, over time, exes can become extremely close friends. Where do you stand on this issue? Keep reading »
