What is the worst thing that can happen to a lazy person on a long weekend? The TV doesn’t work. What’s the worst thing that can happen on the day of the biggest TV day of the year? The TV and SKY break in the block of flats and can’t be fixed!
And that’s what happened to me! I came in from work yesterday to find the TV not working and the people who are meant to maintain this stuff in our flats fobbing us off with the excuse that ‘parts need to be found’ to fix it. So, I have missed the bigests TV event of the year because of the incompetence of these people. I’ve had to make do with an occasional shot of something occuring on youtube (as everyone’s trying to watch it the video part wouldn’t work properly) and a few pics from google.
I have to say, Kate looked beautiful. I certainly want something in that sort of style for my wedding day. She looked elegant, sexy and very much like a Princess these days is excpected to look. And Wills, despite the gaping bald spot on his head, even looked pretty dashing in the uniform he chose to marry in. Harry, as disastrous as he may be in the eye of the media sometimes, was every inch a gentleman on the way, linking arms with the maid of honour he appeared to be chatting up, in his equaly dashing uniform.
The guests to the royal wedding all looked so honoured to be there. I guess it’s one of the bigget honours you can get to be invited to the wedding of some of the monarchy in your own country. David and Victoria Beckham certainly didn’t let the nerves show with Becks’ big smile and Victoria’s impeccable dress sense.
It was also lovely to see al the royals turned out so well. Queenie turned up in an interesting yellow/gold dress suit, which was quite fitting. The one thing I was disappointed in was the extreme lack of smiling considering her grandson was getting married. But I guess that wasn’t just her. Charles and Camilla (horse-face) aalso didn’t seem to smile. I did catch a few frames of Phillip giving a quick grin, however, which was lovely to see.
Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice were sat behind the Queen so we got to see them quite often too. And the one thing I noticed? The hats! How amazing were their hats? One looked like it had been swiped from Peter Pan, while the other seemed to be growing from her head. Absolutely amazing. Bringing a bit of fashion to the front rows of the congregation.
Another notable hat was that of Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, close friend of the Prince of Wales, who seemed to take the Peter Pan theme a little further with a hat that matched her ‘royal’ blue outfit. Joss Stone’s appearance was a bit shocking, as she doesn’t seem to have any importance and I kinds thought she was dead, but her coral dress was very lovely.
I wish I’d been abe to watch it properly, but I’ll have to catch up with the newspaper tomorrow.
