I'm not really watching but it is on in the background right now while I surf the net. I just finished watching The Office I pvr'd and then in a few minutes I'll be watching CSI.

But, one of the funniest things DH and I have seen in a long time just happened. They were panning the crowd of people waiting and there was a girl wearing a crown in the audience, but it wasn't just any crown, it was a Burger King Paper crown. Nothing says dignified like BK. rofl

CBC coverage is kind of boring right now...CTV starts at 3am.

Champagne will be popped here in about 15 minutes. Not often do I start drinking at 3am!

I'm up for a bit, I tried going to bed but didn't fall asleep, I can't believe that people are showing up 2.5 hrs early. And feel bad for the people that are sitting in the last row (or the last 80 lol). I wonder how the seating is determined.

the queen has announced that

"The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince William of Wales. His titles will be Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus.

Prince William thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge and Miss Catherine Middleton on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge"

just discussed this with my mother and she told me that per protocol Diana became Princess because she married heir apparent and that "IF" the queen had given Kate title of Princess she wouldn't have been Princess Cathrine but Princess William.

sounds strange until you find out that it is how it's done. There is a Princess Michael of Kent who was King George (queen's fathers) brothers son's wife.

Kate wouldn't become Princess Cathrine until the queen died and Charles took the throne and made William and Kate Princess and Princess of Wales

The one in blue is Tara Palmer Tomkinson. Her hat is quite surprising, as most people thought she would wear one that covered her face, as her nose has collapsed twice due to cocaine usage.

Wearing hats to a wedding is a big Brit thing. My mum bought one for my first wedding but decided not to wear it as it was here.

My cousin worked for Philip Treacy, she loved it.

I can't sleep, so I have the live stream on. I'm thinking the dress will be princessy, but nowhere near as over the top as Diana's. Full skirt, some lace, little cap sleeves, long train, but elegant. No crazy beading.

I have a feeling that Kate's dress will be very ornate and fancy, she's marrying into the royal family, and it's expected that this is the most impressive wedding of the century, so she will have something very fancy. Probably a really long train and ornate detailing.

Remember Princess Diana's dress? The only other dress I've seen like it was Celine Dion's wedding, and she may well have been royalty for how extravagant her dress was!

I am PVRing CBC and watched a bit but got annoyed when Peter Mansbridge asked the other commentator what was up with everyone being fascinated with the clothes and hats. Normally I like Peter Mansbridge but maybe he shouldn't have been on this assignment.

I'm still recording it but flipping between BBC Canada and TLC. I haven't been to bed yet and I'm sooooo tired. It's 2:10 am here (PST). I was going to go to bed but then I thought I just wanted a glimpse of her dress. Tomorrow is going to be a loooong day with so little sleep.
