Royal Wedding Fever!!!

A few weeks ago, Little Miss Can't Be Wrong asked me to do a guest post, and in case you didn't see it, I am posting it here, since it is now ROYAL WEDDING WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So excited. So very excited.

So in case you hadn't heard, there is going to be a Royal Wedding at the end of the WEEK!!! Surely I am not the only one who is really looking forward to this huge event, right? I wouldn't call myself completely obsessed, but maybe mildly intrigued...okay, maybe more than mildly :)

I think that Prince William and Kate have such an amazing love story. They met at university and were flatmates and good friends. They fell in love and managed to keep their romance under wraps for some time. Then, the world watched it unfold, fall apart and piece itself back together again. I think that Kate is so fascinating. You always hear about how "all little girls dream of becoming a Princess," and now she is going to be one! I wonder if she dreamed of that when she was a little girl. Was it in your wildest dreams? She's also so gorgeous and stylish and classy, and has so much grace. People say that she is like Princess Diana, which I think anyone would take as a huge compliment! Also, during their brief breakup, she kept mum and never embarrassed the Royal Family...she just subtly let Prince William know what he was missing out on!

Of course, with the Wedding of the Century happening, Britain is making the most of it, as they should be! Have you seen some of the things they have? Wills and Kate are everywhere! Their faces are on tea sets, tea towels and even refrigerators!

My personal favorite of the Royal Wedding themed items? The No More Waity, Katie nail polish, from Butter of London! Of course, after an eight year romance, the British press gave poor Kate that not-so-lovely nickname, but her patience paid off, as we know!

Pretty, eh? It's a limited edition color, of course, and I am dying to get my hands on a bottle! I'm sure I'll turn to ebay shortly....

Also, Kate has her own beer!

Castle Rock Brewery came out with this Kiss Me Kate as a tribute to the future Queen of England! It is elegant, tasteful and British to the core, says Castle Rock. This is a Nottingham brewery, and I have friends who live nearby....Kirsty managed to find it and is saving some for us to try when we are in the UK this summer!

Also, look at this book, called Knit Your Own Royal Wedding! Knit everyone, including the Royal Corgis! Love love love.

Adorable, eh?

What would you think, if you were Kate, and suddenly, you were everywhere? What if you were her parents or her siblings? I can't even imagine!

Since Britain is five hours ahead of us here on the east coast, it will be on tv at 5am, on Friday. I think I may need to call in sick, so that I can watch it! Of course, there are viewing parties everywhere, and I have heard of people hosting them too. Embassies are having viewing events, as are hotels! How could they not?! When Charles and Diana married in 1981, I was just a baby, so I didn't watch. I'm sure my parents did, though I haven't actually asked them, to be honest with you! My boyfriend and I are going to the UK in July for a wedding, so I'm sure I will be looking for some of these souveniers! Since I collect tea towels anyway, I know that I need a Wills and Kate tea towel for my collection! I don't think I'll get the fridge though....

So, will you be watching the Royal Wedding? Are you excited by all of the hoopla surrounding it? Are you interested in the Royal Family at all? Want to come over and watch it with me?

The world is awaiting for Royal wedding after so many years a marriage is in the royal family i hope both of them will live happily life along together with some one or two children so let us wish they will be the best couple of the world for the year of 2011 after this wedding she will also prove herself a kind hearted woman as like as Princes Diana and also participate in so many social activities.

I put in for leave 2 months ago. You really must call in sick. It'll be worth it. A friend is visiting London this weekend and promised me a souvenir. Awesome!

I remember Charles and Di's was pretty fabulous. And this one's going to be even better!!!
